This incident has made me realise just how quick somethin can go wrong. i was not doing any stunts or showing off for cameras as there was none, it was an acident but i do admit some of my other videos wer OTT and im so glad nothing happend at the time of them. I found my self holding onto the handle of the door when my girlfriends dad was taking me home and feeling a bit scared when he was accelerating! confused i never thought i would be affected by something like this but look at me now!

im never going to do a video like my past ones ever again. or drive in that way. im lucky to be alive and i feel like i have deffo learnt something from this. maybe even gone from boy racer to a man. thanks thumbsup

A detailed insite:

the incident happend at 22:55 (5mins before the complex closed) i had been to macdonalds to pick up some grub for me and my girlfriend. as i drove out of the drive through the person who was in front of me slammed on the brakes for no reason an i had to brake harsh too. as we got out the drive thru he did it again?!?! this p!ssed me off. i thought i would overtake him on another bit of the car park and get infront so he cant do it again and i did so, I carried more speed around the round about than intended (i dont know the exact mph) at the same time seeing two security guards that i know by some shops I jammed on the brakes to stop and tell them to get this idiot off site only to have the rear and allready on its way out(due to turning off the round about quickly), i held some what of a controlled skid only for it to snap back the other way and make the front end of the car contact the rails.

the rails gripped the car and spun it 180 causing the rear wheel to hit the kirb and smash off taking the hub and disc brake with it, then one more 180spin so i was facing the right way again. and i came to a stop.

the car that had been braking hard went off on the first junction and i went ahead on the second. none else was involved an none really around at 22:55 on a shopping complex.

I have never been in a crash before and didnt know what to do. so i used a near by plastic trolly and put it under the car so i had a 4th wheel and pushed the car outide the complex so they could lock up @ 23:00 and i could call the AA.

I have simpathy for anyone that has been in a crash before cos now i know just what it can do to people.

Gutted for you mate, t'was such a nice car! Glad you're ok though. Bit out of order suspending you imo, you weren't on duty. What if you'd crashed somewhere else, or it was another member of the public who crashed and not you? Don't think your boss would have anything to do with it!

Gutted for you man, glad its made you think about what your doing, cos if you can crash like that driving normally what the hell could happen when doing your "stunts".

hopefully the car wont need much doing to it.
