    Woah. That's a pretty damn scary mess.

    Glad to hear your mate's on the mend - my best wishes for his full recovery. Not saying that the injuries suffered weren't serious, but looking at the photo I'm surprised it wasn't much worse.

    Rob.

    Holy crap thats one hell of a mess, thank god the french have been taking car safety seriously for a while now else that would of been even worse. Best of luck to your friend vorhees.

    I remember about 2 months ago leaving Poole on the ring road after a trip there on the motorbike. On the other side of the road there were more blue lights that i've ever seen shuting the whole road down. There was a red fiesta with the roof lying on the ground next to it where it had been chopped off by the firemen & blankets covering most of the car. Can only imagine what was underneath, never found out if it was indeed a fatality but expect it was. Needless to say I rode home a little more carefully than normal!
