Killed the coupe this morning, it's currently hanging upside down over an 8ft ditch, wedged between a tree and a grass bank
Doing approx 30mph going round a gentle righthand bend, and the rear hit a patch of wet and twitched out to the left, hitting the bank which spun me the opposite way thru 360 heading toward an open gateway flanked by a ditch! Managed to get hold of it and the car on the straight again but as I then braked to stop, I skidded on loose gravel and ended up putting the car up on the verge, clipped a telegraph pole support cable, which flipped the car arse over nose and I ended up hanging upside down!!
Thankfully, only me in it at the time, and I'm perfectly ok, a very lucky boy it seems! Got a bit of stiffness in my neck/shoulder/back but otherwise ok. Two hours laying perfectly flat on my back in A&E as they put me under obs and checked out a bump on my head though wasn't too amusing
Sadly I won't make PV either which is annoying to say the least!!
Ah well, hopefully I'll be able to get a payout sufficient enough to replace the car and get myself back on the road again soon.
Now, off to the as I will need to change the numberplate for my standpass
Pics of the wreck coming soon too, after all we all love pics, even of dead Astra's!
