I was happily on my way to work yesterday morning after coming back from outstation, when at a junction I heard a screech of tire and saw on my side mirror a motor bike was wobbling and then BANG! He had hit my car and skidded and the driver rolled on the ground.
Getting out of my car, I looked at him and asked " are you okay " he said yeah, I guess he was a bit shocked and terrified and asked me " Why did you indicate signal so late ? " I'm like who's asking you to speed and overtake at a junction?
So we moved out of the junction to the side of the road where we wernt obstructing traffic. I inspected my car. Hmm.. no major damage, some paint peeled/cracked. But most importantly the rear lights were intact! Only scratched. Lucky! As I have been unable to source for a replacement yet. I found the left side rear lights, few months back but not the one on the right. Thank goodness for old skool bumpers!
And him inspecting himself more, found he had bruises all over his elbow and leg. Lucky for him he had long sleeves on. If not I suspect it would have been even worse.
So we parted ways, as my ride did not have anything major broken. Not much dents. Scratches from the rear to the front of my car. But I think can use wax to hide it. hehe. My side mirror was "Extended" but popped it back. The electronics still worked. His bike in a mess as it spin spun and slided on the ground. But alas it was not my fault. So thats that!
What a start to 2008 eh?
