You were lucky mate. A lesser car might not have stood up to that.

Glad you are okay though!

You sure are lucky :)

Were you able to open the door to get out?

I bet the lorry driver thought you were a ghost getting out of that !

Was the lorry driver hurt? I mean after you HIT him ! :whistling:

Glad you here to tell us about it :)

Yes, all four doors opened AND shut again, the steering and brakes still worked too!

I jumped out of the car and ran over and pulled the lorry driver out of his overturned lorry! (not to hit him though !)

Insurance are supplying a rental car (Jag X-Class) and lexus Assistance were just unbelivably good.

Car recovered in 20 minutes, taxi to oxford and loan car waiting, plus rental of a loan from Lexus for three days, they also picked up the tab for the recovery....

Simply awsome....

Anyone from Lexus GB want to do a feature just ask, I'll write the Lexus Hymm !

Just glad to hear you are OK Steve.

Did you remember to take the Gold stickers out :)

Bum !

You just don't know how much crap you accumulate in your car till you have 15 minutes to empty it!

No, but I did take the matts and the chrome sill trims off !
