    I am reasonable certain if you are driving a car, and your wheels are pointing that way, then things have gone spectacularly wrong. To be honest, it doesn't look too bad, OK the vehicles are damaged, but they can be replaced.

    Just a little bit of P38 and a repaint for the motorhome. Looks like the car involved is sitting on its roof!

    Just re-read the tweet, it says minor injury. So one for the insurance companies to argue about, also mean that we can legitimately pontificate about a seat ibiza on it's roof! :D

    Hi

    We saw this last night driving home form Portsmouth in my van.

    The motorhomers seemed fine, picking up all their belongings from the hard shoulder .....

    From what I could see from skid marks etc. Being no expert , but the seat on it roof looked like they had pinged of central barrier and smashed into side of the van



    Makes me want to bring forward my plan to go back to a van conversion with my 7 year old daughter in the van ....As she was last night. At lease she said to me we should stop and offer to help the fellow motorhomers pick up their stuff !


    Daniel

    Ah bless her, I know my first thought was I hope there wasn't anybody sat at the dinette seating etc. Not sure a PVC would have really stood up substantially better, I would think the crash structure in one is centered around the cab area, maybe one of these new crash tested Baileys etc. would have had better chances.

    I have always pondered on " Miner" injuries
    Is that just sore knees and a bad back!!

    I think generally it means cuts and bruises, i.e. the sort of thing that needs no more treatment than an elastoplast!
