You must have been doing a high speed, and as above glad you’re still breathing,

So is another ford on the cards or are the insurance paying out :(

As Lenny said you must have been doing quite a speed for there to be that much damage. Glad you're alright though.

Learn from it and move on :)

Nope wasnt going any faster than 30mph as i know for a fact that road is terrible when its wet. Apparantly there were diesel on the bend which made me skid, i tried correcting and ended up in the ditch as the picture shows. (As ive been told)

But yeah, definatley a write off, car shopping again now! Dont think another fiesta is going to be coming my way as my parents said it would probably remind me of the accident too much as im pretty much annoyed at it most of the time!

But wiplash, few bangs and bruises and 6 stitches in my nose isnt bad to look at the car, i was in tears when i saw the car :'(

No one else was in the car, i just dropped off a friend before though! so glad she wasnt in the car when this happened. :(

Thankyou everyone for showing concern! I just thought id show my terrible loss of a car haha.

It's always hard dealing with an accident. I remember my brother when he wrote off his Astra and he was so shaken up it took him a while before getting behind the wheel again. When you do drive again, you're likely to be quite nervous, but take someone with you it might make you feel better and just gain your confidence back.

My brothers crash was very similar, and the damage was similar - someone pulled out at a roundabout and he didn't have time to react and smashed straight into the side of their car. She'd only been driving a few weeks and was using her mothers car, so obviously lack of experience on her part.

I remember getting beaten up last year (got my front tooth smashed out and needed 18 stiches at A&E) in a road rage incident (I was blameless, so no flaming). It took me a while before my confidence came back, and was nervous on a night with lights behind me. But confidence does come back in time.

Anyhow, hope the insurance claim goes quickly and you can be back on the road soon :)
