    I bet that was worth watching.

    Not a happy bunny, bet he had loads of grief with the insurance company over that.

    typical fire brigade.............youve only got to say "ooh my back or neck" and out come the cutters. I once attended a job where a brand new police arv (£30000 worth) was involved in an rta. The driver complained of neck pain,....hence one convertible police volvo

    I've done that to a car on a training exercise (used to be in the fire brigade) but i just cannot figure out WHY they would not even try to get the person out without trying the doors first. I think there must be more to the story myself.

    This car belonged to the innocent hlping by stander who simply offered the guy envolved in the RTA somewhere to sit whilst waiting for ERV's.

    I know but i'm still puzzled.........They would have known he had been taken from the crashed car. No firefighter would get cutting gear out unless it was a last resort. (or it was a police car )

    The person involved in the rta must of had a suspected significant spinal injury or significant neurological defecit for the roof to be taken off, otherwise he would of been turned and slid onto a spinal board through the door. what puzzles me is that how did he get from his car to the jag if he was that badly injured ???

    Exactly m8, thats my point. how did someone with such bad injuries that require the roof of the Jag to be removed, get from the car he was in to the back of the Jag? His car must have been ok for him to get out of in the first place. Something just does'nt add up

    I can concur with that. After my recent smack, the Merc (after hitting me from behind) then went head on with an oncoming Audi. The resultant scene, I admit, was a bit of a mess.

    But the very first thing that the first fireman out of the appliance said to the Traffic Cop was "Right, who needs cutting out then?" (Nobody)

    Thank ferk I wasn't still sat in my car going "Ooh, my neck." I'd have had the first convertible Signum on the site!!!
