Thanks to some old fart who shouldn't have been on the road, my Astra is off the road, and its entire driver's side is ****ed!!!!!!
Was on a country road that I use fairly often, and was about to turn right. There was a late model Toyota Hilux behind me. I slowed down, indicated right and started turning. Next thing I know, the Hilux starts overtaking!!!!! As a result, we hit. Apparently its my fault for not indicating...I indicated. Nobody was injured, and both cars were able to be driven away from the scene of the accident, but my car is far from roadworthy at the moment...hopefully the insurance company will realise it was his fault, not mine. Even if I didn't indicate, or my indicator was buggered (its not, and I did indicate), it doesn't exactly take a genius to work out that if a vehicle is slowing down at an intersection, that it is probably about to turn.
Personally though, I think the only "big rig" that he should have been in, is the passenger's seat in a bus.
Edit - here's the pics:
