I Wrote of the Polo of doom last night!!

Im ok, craked sturnum and a few ribs, and bruises etc etc.

i was on a nice clear straight heading home, and there was a Ford Ranger infront of me doing 30 on a 60mph road, so naturally i decided to overtake him, i was doing about 60, im half way through my manuver, when the berk decides to indicate right and turn immediately after indicating, not even looking in his mirror, so of course i slam into him directly sideways on at 60mph!
Spin his ranger competely round and manage to turn the Polo over onto its side!!
We all climbed out etc, walked away!!
Im suprised how soft my air bag was!
Ive got a small bruise on my nose from it!

Just pissed of more than anything, but at least my daughter and wife wasnt in the car with me, and that i walked away!

The left side of the car is considerably shorter than the right side!
And the bonnet is now at the same height as the roof!!

ill post pics when i get them emailed to me (father in law took one when it was on the back of the flat bed, its not a great pic as it was really dark!)

Main thing is im ok!

so now im looking for a new car, gonna stick with vw's for sure as i know they are safe ( first hand crash testing!) and i reckon its gonna be a family orientated mk 3 golf or such like, gti of course though! ;)
Anyone knows of one for sale ( 5 door only ) drop me a line!

ive got to think positivley about it (trust me its hard too!)
You're positive you won't overtake where someone else can turn right again? ;)

Glad you're ok. How's the driver of the other car? Other than shocked! Guess he didn't see you at all?

The funny thing was, it wasnt even a junction they turned right into, it was a track entrance, and i had no idea that it was there until sunday! And i drive that road every day!

There were 2 guys in the Ranger, and they were fine, apart from obilgatory bruises/shock.
The ranger didnt really have that much damage to the eye (but the wheel was at a funny angle, a driveshaft was hanging down, and the undertray and exhaust were touching the griund.)

:eek: So sorry to hear that. :( The main thing is you and the other driver are both OK. :hug:

Perhaps you should give the next car a more positive name! :lol:
