Your Car Crashes
Posted 05 February 2006 - 04:08 PM
I've had afew most recent was literally 20minutes ago hence inspiration for the topic.
My first crash, i went into the back of some dippy woman in Edinburgh who stopped in the middle of a yellow box for no reason!?! dumb bitch.
My most recent one, I was just out driving in the roads round here (Ayr) are pretty damn cool lots of windy clifftop ones. Anyway I was pushing my car as much as I could and was on a back road on the way to my house and went flying into one of my favorite corners doing i'd guess about 65-70 mph. Next thing I know the car starts to slide out so i try and correct it but over correct sending me into a spin maybe about 270dgrees before a hedge and wire fence stop me.
What I was thrilled about was that there was pretty much no damage to my car, NONE really! afew scrathes here and there from the hedge and a missing VW badge but thats about it, sweet. And the car seems to be driving fine. Could have been so much worse if it was a wall not a hedge though

That's it, thankfully ... for now

Pretty scary though, considering the huge ditches...

As for crashes I've been in, only one I think. My step-dad ran up the back of some woman who decided it would be a good idea to slam on her brakes going 70km/h at an orange light. We just banged up the front of our car, but their whole car got f*cked up, becuase their tow bar hadn't been installed property. Luckily insurance took care of that large bill.

Whilst on my usual run after college I took the last sweeping bend before my street entrance only to find the yoke was stuck (steering) becasue of a keyring a friend had put it on two rings, so it was lower down.
I hit a drop curb at 80mph, bounced off the top of a hedge and landed in the middle of the road in a 1000 pieces of plastic, just 100 yards from my street entrance.
This is a top down view of it:
Street is where the blurred postcode is, and the corner is almost in the middle of the screen. On the straight where my street is after the corner there is a tree. Thats the tree I nearly hit, thankfully I hit the hedge before it and bounded away. Otherwsie I wouldn't have been so lucky.
Incedently, afterwards, cars just drive round me and the bike in the road, trying not to look. f*cking arrogant twats. Luckily I could push myself and the bike home.
My other bike accident wasn't so trivial.
Basically an old guy in a brand new Jag X-Type pulled out in front of me and I hit him side on.
He appeared to stop at the junction and becasue the road swept left then right up a small crest I had to look ahead of me to see what was coming, obscturcting the road etc as many people round here like to cut the road becasue they just don't expect the road to be so narrow and complex.
As soon as I looked ahead of me the guy just hadn't seen me, I had just propped the bike up to lean left to right when I saw his car and before I could hit the brakes my head went through his rear passenger window and the bike came to a sudden stop.
I never fell off the bike. I managed to take the force of the impace on my head and pelvis (my balls) and in a split seocnd I had jumped off the bike and run to the side of the road. I remeber throwing off my helmet and shousting "ARGH! My f*cking balls!" There were loads of tourists sat at the icecram tea rooms and they all made a big fuss, made me a brew etc while the guy moves his car out the middle of the road.
The police turned up and sos did the ambulance, took a few details then took me to hospital. I got checked over then sent home and I was stiff as f*ck for a week. No cuts of breaks, just bruised quite a bit.
The bike was a write off:
Map of the incedent with markings of who was where:
With my cars, I bumped my Mk3 golf the only time I was being careful with it. I threw it up the drive all the time (between a concrete lamp post and a tree) but when one day I did it slowly I scraped the side of the car up the lamp post.
In my Punto I had loads of incedents, like my mate stopping at a green light in front of me so I ran into the back of him, and I also was hit by a 4x4 that slid on some ice into me which forced me to crash in a ditch.
My 206 I haven't had any major incedents apart from a guy reversing into my on a motorway exit ramp when trying to pull out onto a roundabout, and last week when I had been driving all day with hot tyres and it suddenly let go and I had to steer into it before I hit a gate post.

On another occasion I locked up the brakes on my Kingswood sedan while driving on wet grass and the car kept sliding untill it hit a parked Mitsubishi Magna. Luckily by the time I hit it, I was only doing maybe 5-6kph so it didn't cause any damage, not even a mark on the paint of either car.
I crashed my HQ Kingswood paddock basher into a creek once, I was going around a corner in the wet on grass at roughly 30kph along the bank of a creek, when due to bald tyres, the back end slid out 90 degrees to the right and went off the bank backwards. We tried to tow it out, but it was too wet and the other car couldn't get enough traction to pull it out, so we had to leave it there untill the rain stopped and the water receeded to a point where we could drive it out.

This one isn't really a crash, but it came pretty close. The same friend was driving his chevy s10 in a field, doing drifts and donuts. I was also inside the truck. Well halfway through an 40-ish km/h drift the front left wheel caught a bump, it went up on 2 wheels and almost flipped over. I got thrown to the other side of the truck (no seatbelt) and landed ontop of the shifter. (to make it worse, it was a maual transmission with a really long shifter). My ass hurt for a few days after that.

My mom was in what could've been a serious accident once. She was driving on I-95 (A main highway around here) and was behind a tractor trailer with an open trailer. The guy was hauling plywood to a job site which was strapped down. Apparently, one piece wasn't strapped well enough, and it crashed through her windshield. She only got a few cuts and bruises, but it could have been worse.

Another time he was pulling outta my driveway just at my neighbor across the street was, and he backed right into him. This time it did alot more damage to both vehicles. It was my friends fault cause my neighbor was already in the street halfway.
So far I havent had any close calls with my car, so I dont have any good stories, thankfully.

Was going on the only road to my college towards a mini roundabout, I was coming to a stop and the back end of the bike hit some ice. Slid out a bit and I went into the left back side of some renault car. No damage to car or bike, only my leg (got kind of jammed between the body of my bike and the car) which has recovered now.
The impact of hitting the car at around 20-25mph knocked me like a brick wall, I came forward off the seat and hit my chest on the dials and my head hit the back of the car as I went forward a bit.

Was going about 50 over some speedbumps then they changed to some rounded ones and as i pulled in the front brake i hi8t the bump, the ped stopped immediatly and flipped over, i was sent about 100 yards down the road. Got up after though and waled away.
My worst car crash, I wish I could find the photos.
We were racing goin round this corner at about 80, the car spun out and lifted itself off the ground, I then struck a lampost
(British lamposts do not tend to move if you hit them)
I hit it on the drivers side and the car bent round the lampost, almost so the bonnet was touching the back, knocked the lampost clean out of the ground then rolled over into a ditch over barbed wire. Broke several ribs and punctured a lung.
But all good fun. lol
