well, as has been said before, never thought I would have to post here, but yes after 34 years of accident free motoring its happened, side swiped at a cross roads (yes i had right of way), taken to hospital very bruised chest, thats all, but god it hurts, car i think will be a right off, the other guy refused hospital treatment, police involved, now in the hands of the insurance company, sorry if the pics dont work, computer illiterate i am affraid, in fact can not upload, got them into the upload section but saying to big, have reduced the size, still no joy, anyway basically, passenger front wing caved in, bonnet pushed up same wing side, front bumper fubared, front "A" panel buckled, no washer bottle,in fact inside, that side a right mess, front wheel buckled, so god knows what damage to front axle ect, hit by a citroen piccasso, remind me not to buy one of those his front end completley gone, do now on the look out for another escort, imo she held up well.

If you get the pictures in paint, and go to "resize". Put 25% in and it makes them a lot smaller. Then try uploading them via evohost and put the tags on them.

If that makes sense :)

I use GIMP, its like photo shop only free :-)

 

Clicky for gimp

 

If done installing, open the pic in gimp then go to the Image tab on the top and select Scale image in the drop down list.

 

Then follow this : http://www.escortevolution.co.uk/forums/in...showtopic=15299

Glad you're ok, sounds like a nasty one. The front end of the picasso was probably designed to fall away so it doesnt do any more damage to you than necessary - pain in the arse if you have to fix it but a lifesaver if youre on the other side of the accident.

 

You got sideswiped at a cross roads where you had right of way - Im not seeing how they would take the pee out of you, to be honest.

 

Hope you're feeling better soon.
