    S##T a proverbial brick Nick , thats one hell of a lucky escape from serious injury, if you were both travelling at 70mph then the impact speed was 140 mph, and theres not many that walk away from that kind of crash , ive dealt with fatal vehicle crashes at much lesser speeds. You had better start doing the lottery, you have the luck of the gods on your side, im glad your ok , a car can always be replaced , take it easy for the next few days as you could experience a delayed shock reaction , take care mate and all the best, Dave

    Glad you are OK. From the looks of the crash,
    It could have turned out much worse.

    I overtook a white van man on the M62 the other day. I thought his driving was a bit erratic, so I speeded up to get away from him. As I passed, I could see him texting on his phone. An absolute arsehole!

    Just seen this!! Glad you’re ok Nick!!!

    An uncle of mine was killed in a head on crash in 1989, he was on his way to Skelmersdale, had recently just set up his own electrical manufacturing business

    Just proves how much difference 24 years of advances in car safety have made, he may have survived if it happened recently god rest his soul

    Take it easy, will dig out that action man stuff out this weekend!

    EDIT: It was not my uncles fault, some D*CKHE*D overtook on a blind bend, my uncle was killed instantly
