The Sv6 is no more.

This morning travelling to work 7:30am, I was headed north bound on West Coast Highway to turn Right onto Hale road, waiting for the traffic (was a green light but not for turning lane right) so was waiting for southbound traffic on WCH to stop. Lights went amber and the southbound traffic in the left lane stopped, but some idiot in the right lane went through the amber, I saw him so I waited, had another look saw a bus taht was slowing down, and started to take off round onto Hale road. BAM, ****ing bus runs the red and cleans me up. The entire front of my car is completely F***ED. 18tons vs 1.8tons, not a good way to go :(

I'm ok though, both drivers and passengers airbags went off and I got out of the car straight away. Was taken to charlie gardner hospital by the ambo's just in case, but I just have a strained back muscle. Fkn bus drivers man.

So now I have to look for a new car...

The car is a write off for sure. In my shocked state I was still able to take 2 pics of it, not very good pics considering, bloody shaky hand, but I'll post em.

Although it sucks you lost your car, who did police determine was at fault? Hopefully you had witnesses so you cant be done for failing to give way.

Yeah I have full compo, and I also have 6 witnesses who will testify hand on bible that the bus driver ran the red. However the crash scene coppers reckon there might be an infringement in it for me for failing to wait for all traffic to stop, regardless the fact that I was in the right and he crossed through a red light. THAT sucks ass in itself, but just as long as my insurance coughs up, should be fine. Coz the car is financed, the payout will cover the cost of the loan of course, so I'm already looking around for a new one hehe. Thinking something along the lines of VY-VZ SS .... will see :)
