On way home from work s'afternoon come across a police road closed sign so had to do a U turn & find another way, living out in country there's lots of lanes I've not used so try to use my bearings & go round in a square only to come out where an over turned HGV is being craned back upright.
A copper approaches me & states the obvious so I turn round & start making my way back another way when a Transit comes hurtling round the bend ahead. I came to a stop & woundered how the hell is he going to, then it dawned on me he wasn't
He went up the embankment, through a bush bouncing back down onto the road on it's two O/S wheels still coming in my direction & rolling over, it was then I had this feeling of it over the top of me which is when I hit reverse & nailed it without even looking to see where I was going.
Somehow it stayed upright & whilst I'm screaming in reverse he shunts me backwards even more.
He got out, van at such an angle the bottom corner of his door dug into the road & it's n/s/r wheel in the air. With a lot of presuassion & burning clutch he managed to get it down and says he was trying to find another way round too.
His only seemed to have a scuffed wing and mine had the headlight popped in behind the wing which has popped back out & all seems to sit right, just my bumper's fixing is broke so is hanging off.
Not a lot considering what looked like was gonna happen.
Oh by the way I was only in the works Astra
