Loc: Neston, South Wirral
Well, few of you know but for those that haven't heard i somewhat wrapped my car in the early hours of thursday morning.

Long story short i went round a bend slightly faster than i should have and swirved missing a milkfloat, slammed in the the grass embankment ( it was a typical country lane) and back flipped the car on to its roof and landed in the hedge on the other side of the road back on all fours.


Within the minutes the 3 coppers had arrived on scene and began to grill me, they said i was very lucky to come out alive let alone walk, looking at these pictures in the cold light of day i tend to agree.


That's basically it, i have to pay 165 for a driver improvement course and all the fee's that come with the recovery but still counting myself lucky, I haven't really suffered any injuries apart from cuts and bruises.


Thanks to Jimbo for his lightening quick reactions otherwise it could have been alot worse! lol. Seriously though, cheers for the help Jim. Shall be out and about in no time people, and back on the scene lol. wink













And Me after the event.

Glad your ok mate,is the car a write off or is it jsut a few scratches on the roof? Driver improvement course is a piece of piss and made me a better driver so i think theyre worthwhile, however, what i learnt on the course wouldnt have prevented my crash.Any pics?

You'll see when webby gets the pics up how bad the damage is, all I'm saying is it won't exactly t-cut out smack and I think this is the worst wreckage I've ever seen up close.

Rocco, I know I've already said it but it's a miracle you're alive mate, my mind went blank when I came round the corner and saw your car in the hedge, wasn't sure what I was gonna find looking at the wreckage. A front passenger would've been at least hospitalised, anyone in the back wouldn't have made it. Really can't believe you walked away with cuts and bruises.

Just a thought, you should send the pics in to crash of the month coz i have no doubt in my mind that you'd win. You should mention that we found your front numberplate about 8' up the hedge too.
