The wound on your shoulder looks very much like a puncture wound, if so it could have been the car or armco piercing you.
Either way I'd be doing the lottery this week if I were you wink.
Very glad to read you're both ok and hope you have a peaceful Christmas.

Realy sorry to see you lost your Sag.
Lost my Mk1 Tuscan earlier this year so can still vividly remember the pain of losing her.
Glad your not badly injured and can find your sense of humour.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery and sorting out the insurance.

If your interested, e-mail me and I can let you know how my insurance valued my Mk1 Tuscan.

Wow, big smash indeed! Would be interested to know what happened and the sequence of events. Judging by the damage to the roll cage, I presume the car flipped and landed heavily on it's roof?

I drove the M62/M18 junction yesterday in my Trev and all seemed well then. Glad you're "on the whole" ok though.

Bloody hell mate, what a nightmare.

I wrote off my last Tuscan, and again was lucky to walk away. I hope your feeling ok, as I remember how shook up I was.

All the best.

OMG that looks awful! And so do your injuries.

I'm really shocked by how much the rollcage bent though. That's really worrying. eek

Really sorry for your loss and I'm glad you're (relatively) unhurt.

Glad you got out of that. Wow. Nasty. I'm glad you've kept your sense of humour about it too...

...but it's still a timely reminder that Tivs aren't the most practical of vehicles in the snow and ice...

Me to John irked I must admit I thought the rollcage in the Sag would have held up better than that confused

Not so sure about that - assuming the car rolled at a fair rate of knots I can't imagine the GRP shell would have held up like that without it...

Without knowing the full facts that's too sweeping.
First and of most importance 2 people got out alive and relatively intact.
If you imagine the force needed to deform/break a rollcage like that I'd rather it was absorbed by a piece of tubing than my body.
Also It could be that fire & rescue had to cut through to release them?

There is definitely something about it that doesn't add up given that the GRP shell is largely intact.

ouch glad you are ok bar the new tattoo,
perhaps you over did it with the wine, just added to much weight to the rear end and caused a failure wink
