    Default man killed Audi r8 vs bus

    A driver here was telling us that there was a crash in Newcastle and apparently the car driver was doing 120 in a 30 zone and on his phone http://www.journallive.co.uk/north-e...1634-32084763/

    If that's true then **** him, at least he just killed himself. Looking at the pics there's no way that was a 60mph combined speed collision. My vectra looked better than that audi when i had a head on with a 100mph combined speed.

    Here's pics of my Vec B after a bloke came round a corner half on my side of a country road. We were both doing 50-60mph, he caught m3 about 2/3 head on. I rolled and ended up on my roof in a field.

    I walked out of that with a few cuts and bruises and a sprained ankle. He had a dislocated shoulder.

    No way was that Audi doing 30.

    Read both links and where is 120 mentioned? Looking at the proximity of the vehicles after the crash at 120 I would have expected more damage and widespread wreckage at that speed. Thankfully the bus driver was ok. As for the Audi driver. He got what he deserved

    What a waste of a beautiful car and a life. Obviously he was speeding and could well be his own fault but he's still someone's son, grandson, brother or other so my thoughts are with them
