i think she had put her foot down coming up the hill but cant be sure . at the end of the day there is no such thing as a perfect driver as errors are made but when i have the kids in the car iam very carefull . S o ill have to wait for the police report

Nasty things head on crashes.. i saw one on the A75 the other day.. some tit tried to overtake a truck and didnt see the car coming towards him.. rather than hit it he ran it off the road, down a ditch and into the field.. i saw the bloke on the way home.. he was crouched down and he looked like a ghost..

Scary stuff.. Glad your all ok :)

would have to agree with you there mate, there is no perfect driver out there no matter how long you have been driving. its like with a few drivers they can miss judge things.

Fooking hell, burns and broken bones, that sounds pretty nasty mate.

Glad you and your family got out relatively unscathed.

Glad your all ok mate :)

Metal can be replaced easy, life can not :(


Make sure you document everything you remember for your own records fella, of all injuries, pain, losses etc.

If you dont have some pain killers (anti inflamatory) then I would get some, once you start to feel slightly stiff/slight pain start to take them to get them in your system.

If ya need any advise just send us a message and will help where I can mate

Thank fook for airbags m8.
Glad you did not get too hurt although it sounds bad enough.
Get yourself and the little ones back into a car asap because they will be nervous of them as will you.
i had a smash a few years back that could have been nasty just managed to aviod head on and took the full front side including wheel clean off. I was very nervous getting back in and still am very wary on country roads.

You will probably stiffen up and get sore over the next few days so keep an eye on the Kiddies m8.
