    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 **** 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!
