Horrific Car Accident!!
yesterday was my 18th birthday, my sisters boyfriend, corin, of 3 years whom is very much a brother to me was involved in a horrific car accident on the way home from my house after birthday dinner
he owns a 97 hilux ute, 3.0 litre diesel. this thing is an absolute monster and is pretty unbreakable
about 5 minutes after hed left, we received a phone call from him telling us hed had an accident and the other driver had done a runner, we left immediately to get to the scene, but i thought to myself "wat sort of car would be able to crash into the hilux and then be ABLE to do a runner, no matter wat happens the other guy should come off second best"
we arrived to see a huge scene, an EA ghia was in the middle of the road and corin was standing next to his ute which was up the gutter on the left side of the road, in a daze with a massive welt on his forehead from where his head smashed against the windscreen, i looked the ford and said "i thought hed done the bundy?, where is he?"
corin didnt remember much, but he said the other guy jumped out of his car staright after the crash and ran down a side alley next to some flats.
eye witnesses (busy road) say the other driver was travelling well above 100 ks and was swerving and drifting onto the wrong side of the road when he impacted with corin who would have been doin 60-70ks an hour,
both were total write offs, if he had been in a smaller car, we doubt he would have been so lucky to get away alive.
rego check showed the EA was reported stolen, and reports had come seeing an man running, bleeding badly, limping heavily, dazed and drunk away from the scene.
corins ute was not insured, the plates on the other car were swapped plates
whats goin to happen now that the other driver has gotten away (i presume so much). the EA was stolen with swapped plates, what can he do? please tell me he will not have to be the one to have to pay for another low life scums actions?
a drunk driver in a stolen car, coming at you speeding at over 100 ks an hour when ur just driving home from a family dinner. will he be able to collect on insurance or wat?
