Crash at Griffith Shops

By johnboy - 7 February 2007 62

Frankenstein sent in the following from the corner of Strezlecki and Stuart St just near Griffith shops yesterday morning:

My brother was driving me to school. AND THEN. AND THEN this lady ran a stop sign (not sure if it was because she thought she could make it or because she didn’t see it) and as she was driving through an Action bus hit her on the back corner of her car and it must have been going pretty fast as she flipped in the air a couple of times and landed on our car.
I didn’t see any of this. All I heard was my brother say “Fuck.” and as I looked up I see this red car flying at us.
If we had been about 3 seconds earlier she would have gone straight through our windscreen.
Anyway. The moral of the story is- drive a volvo. I can’t believe how relatively unscathed the car was. Does that make sense?

Also, everybody was okay.

what a good way to start school.

P.S Do you know what this makes my brother? ANOTHER P PLATE CAR CRASH TO ADD TO THE ALREADY BAD STATISTICS!

What’s Your opinion?

VG is right. Your brother is wanker. A lucky wanker. If he was some wu-shu ninja master he would have gone super-saiyan on their arses.

Holy Moley… lucky no one was seriously hurt…

“Nik- We were about 4 metres from the stop sign. My brother is really in Wu-shu so I asked him what he did when he realised what was going on and he said that he took the time to relax every part of his body. I didn’t see what was happening because I was talking to a friend in the back seat so I just saw the car flying and hitting us. And, I think my brother is a bit of a ninja so he probably reacted fast.”

I’m glad no-one got hurt but what a load of shit. Ninja my bum! He did what everyone did in a prang, froze solid

Red Car driver seems to live out of her car somewhat… or DID until she destroyed it. She was very lucky!!! Signs aren’t just there to beautify the world…

And Ms Stein, I take it your commenting on this from school atm? How things have changed, it’s making me feel old.

holy crap that’s my bus stop you can see in the pic. I must have just missed this – what time did this happen Frank?

A red car flying upside down right in front of you is a little hard to miss though

Especially if it happens in slow motion, with an appropriate soundtrack playing in the background.

Nik_the_Pig 9:38 am 07 Feb 07

Good to hear. For those of us who aren’t ninja masters it pays to remember that good observation skills can make up for slightly slower reactions, more often than not giving you those few extra fractions of a second to react. A red car flying upside down right in front of you is a little hard to miss though 😉

Ninja drivers, hell yeah!

I think “F*CK” is the right reaction.

Glad to hear you’re all OK.

GY, I think Frankenstein means her car. Second photo, gray car, minor damage to bonet.

frankenstein 9:23 am 07 Feb 07

Haha, not the red car. The volvo that you can just see on the left in the second picture.
She was flipping in the air and then landed on our bonnet.

Nik_the_Pig 9:22 am 07 Feb 07

Your brother may have been involved in a crash but he didn’t cause it. It’s also good to see you rate driving a safe over a flash car and from the sounds of it your brother was aware of his surroundings and a fraction of a second tap on the brakes may have saved you both, and the driver of the car, some far more serious injuries. If he had time to swear he probably acted even if he doesn’t remember doing so.

Having said that, from the second photo it looks as if your vehicle may have been stopped already at the stop sign on the opposite side of the road? Is that correct?

golden_youth 9:18 am 07 Feb 07

I can’t believe how relatively unscrathed the car was. Does that make sense?

???? it looks pretty beat up to me!?
