Yes the other guy did stop, and he cam running out saying how sorry he was, and he had pressed the "wrong pedal".

He had pressed the brake instead of the clutch.

He has wrote this all down on a bit of paper.

car has gone to

UK Assistant Accident Repair Centre

Damn.......hope it gets sorted quickly for you mate.

Mine is in the body shop after a smash two weeks ago.............I was stationary at pedestrian lights, about 6 or 7 cars back, was stationary for about 20 seconds then BANG, some f*ckwit slams into the back of me doing about 20 :shutit: It was a company van so insurance should be okay, it was hit and miss if they were going to repair my car. Anyway repairs are under way, just got to hope they are up to my standards.

no mate :crybaby::crybaby: the insurance company will prob price it up using oe parts which will make the rebuild very costly along with paint and labour.

it looks like a really bad one.did the air bags go off and what ones? seat belts retract?

Maybe I could buy it back as cat D ?

no airbagsdeployed , seatbelts ok

Only thing i can assume, i was braking so heavy to avoid him that the car had dipped enough to hit the under of his rental van.

you could but check for chassis leg damage(ask for the assesors report) as its very costly to jig a car might not cost a lot using second hand parts if you can find them as some bits are hard to find :unsure:
