View Full Version : drive back from the Ring on Sunday

09-09-2008, 08:00 PM
got to the Brussels RO on Sunday afternoon when a young Arab in a Merc E200 lost it next to me! He hit me on the front nearside I hit the brakes hard and in the wet the trailer fish tailed striking the armco on the inside. This destroyed the rear light on the trailer. He then skidded and hit the bumper of my car at the front bounced off and hit the armco coming to a halt across my car so I had no option but to smash into his car. Nobody hurt but cars a mess, after lots of duck tape I had a car which I could drive home, all the lights bar the trailer worked. We had to wait for the police to come and take statements which took 2 hours and then I could get on my way :-( Martin


as you can see he had a completely different wheel and tyre on the rear nearside which I would say would have caused the skid - he however told the police that a third car hit him from behind causing him to spin?
