I had an accident on the M1 on the way home from work. I probably shouldn’t say anything about it here, sub judice and all that. I wasn’t hurt, and two other people are being checked for whiplash. I’m not sure if my car will make it.

Had quite a long wait in the recovery truck because he was called to an additional accident on the way to taking me to a railway station. The second accident looked a lot like mine, only with much more expensive cars.

Whilst sitting in the truck listening to Radio 1 I heard the news:

  • police were appealing for motorists who drove straight past the body of a badly injured woman on a road to speak them
  • news was reported of a 6 hour wait for police to respond to a woman hiding in a kitchen cupboard because her husband was about to kill her; she was killed by her husband
  • Ken Bigley’s captors released another video of him in a cage, bound hand and foot, and weeping

It put my accident in perspective a bit.

    Hello. I recently had a car accident too and was very fustrated at the time, but then realised that things could be much worse after watching the news minutes later

    The good people at was able to assist me in the accident where the driver was uninsured, and I got a healthy check sum. Overall, I am pleased in fact 🙂
