I've crashed my car!

Post by TheDude18 » Fri Feb 29, 2008 10:28 am

On my way to work today my megane coupe lost grip on a sharp bend. The road itself has little grip due to the lorries of mud which drive on it everyday. I tried to countersteer the car but it oversteered with me trying to correct it :oops: and ended up in a ditch via some trees.

My first ever crash! 13 bloody years! I'd always wanted a coupe as I thought they were smart looking and cheap...ish. Now i've wraped it round a tree. I was very lucky to walk away though with the bumps/scraches so I will count my blessings. Ill need some new pants though.

I've had a few crashes, all my fault, but apart from car damage, everyone involved walked away, well one guy got carted off on a stretcher but he walked again after a few months. Can you claim on the insurance for the pants?

Those are the worst kind of lorries. Not only do they make a mess of the road but they dissolve completely if you take them out in bad weather. :twisted:

Glad you're ok though mate, perhaps a motor with a little less low end torque next time though. Either that or play lots of Forza with the braking lines turned off. :wink:

Did it reappear on the road, flashing a bit and being able to drive through other cars for a second...?

(Yeah, terrible joke... have you had yourself checked out to make sure you're okay?)

Has anyone bothered to question why lorries should be transporting mud ?

Is mud valuable ?

Is mud some new age commodity that is exchangeable for welsh love-spoons or cheese ?

Shall I call Mudler & Scully ?

Thanks for your replies. Got checked out, ok bar my nose is a bit wonky(mind you my nose is kaput anyway due to rugby players trying to punch it)

The lorries are -

1)Not made of mud :wink:
2) Constantly moving mud due to a new racecorse(bang goes gamblers anonymous) being built and end up caking the road with said mud.

Mud is -

1)Not valuable :wink:
2)Not a welsh comodity(Sheep,leeks,love spoons are)

I wasnt speeding though. I'm slow and steady. 5 cars have crashed on this stretch in the last 2 months (1 was a cop car)

I flipped an Austin Montego over 360 degrees TWICE doing only about 35mph many, many moons ago... that was in Wales and partly due to mud too.

I was fine, to the amazement of the rural copper who kept going on about how he would be expecting to "pull a corpse outa wreck like her look boy", rather than a slightly rattled but entirely intact disillusioned British car buyer...

Continuing the theme, a friend of mine rolled his Vauxhall Nova in a country lane near Caerleon, after slipping on mud and hitting the verge. The A-pillars crumpled and he turned the car into a wedge of cheese.

I know a Welsh man who managed to roll an ice cream van.

Is that a worthy contribution to this thread?

I wish Outrun 2 had lorries full of mud.

That would be cool.
