Just had a crash!
Hey! Just had my first prang. Happened 30 mins ago as I was on the return to work.
Cruising round a corner at around 15 and saw a Escort stopped about 20m infront of me. I stopped and waited, watched his reverse lights come on, and drive back to my car and attempt to turn into his space, clipping my front right with his two left doors.
Pulled in and had a look. First thing he said was 'did you not see me reversing?'. I said 'yeah, but you didn't check your mirrors before you reversed from 20m away'.
Anyway, both of his doors are pushed in about 1 inch at the height of my bumper, and my right indicator is broken and the wing is dented just below where I knocked out an old bump... Damage: new light and more panel beating required. He's offered to pay for the damage. We didn't discuss liability, I assume because it's too obvious...!
Just thought I'd share it with ya all!
For Sale: Alfa Romeo Spark Plugs - NGK laser platinum, 10mm & 14mm. PM me.
