CRASHING
Previous | 12 | Next

T boned a Jag X type in the half light of morning on my way to the station on my bicycle this morning. I was on the main road, travelling at ~20mph when the said Jag driver pulled up from a minor road to give way, except they didn't and I went into their front wing, taking off, clearing the bonnet with a WWWOOOAHHHH, landing on my head and shoulder before forward rolling to a stand where I jumped onto the pavement looking for my displaced glasses.

Carbon front forks exploded, havent assessed the rest of the bike. My helmet took the brunt of the impact on the back of my head, impressive absorption for a 10 year old design.

Took a trip to A&E but only to check I hadnt missed anything than but slight concusion (slow focussing) bumps bruises and strained neck from the neck spring. Off to report it at the police station now.

What a spacker (the Jag driver, not you!)

Sounds like a nasty whack to the head there, Ben..GWS!

Good job you were wearing a helmet. Hope you're OK. And got insurance details :twisted:

Yes, she stopped 'I just didn't see you!' tried to give me a hug! I was with it enough to get a pad an pen out for her to leave her details and a couple who were passing by helped me to get back home. Bit stiff and a bit sleepy (could be baby induced though).

Hope you are ok .

:shock: Maybe you took turbotferret's video as a challenge!

Sorry to hear about that, and glad you're ok. Is the bike insured? As no doubt it's a decent one.

Doesn't look so cool when you do it with your face, I'd imagine.

:)

I remember launching myself over a opel corsa van than pulled across me when i was about 14 . wasnt wearing a helmet so i used my arms to protect my head . brushed myself off and carried on

I thought you would have parked the 911 backwards in a ditch.:(

As it is, you're doing in wrong. You're supposed to smash her back doors in, not her front wing.:roll:;)

Oof. At least it wasn't worse I suppose! Hope you're feeling better soon.

does sound nasty, but glad you are OK

'I just didn't see you!' - as in I just didn't look properly and didn't even think of cyclists....!! Useless!!
Glad you're OK. Impressive pictures.
