Well himself, myself and herself are home again safe and sound. In more or less one piece although himself is still limping and wincing everytime he moves. He's feeling loads better today espesially after the shock of seeing the car yesterday. We had to go to Sandbach to fetch some stuff out of the car wreck and took the opportunity to take some photo's at the same time. Rather scary I felt, it made me realise how much we owe to airbags and other wonderfully complicated safety measures that we take for granted nowdays. If Roberts' car had been older he wouldn't have walked away from the wreckage. We counted a total of six airbags in the car 3 of which were for the driver (thank goodness!) I didn't even realise there were that many in the car!
The other guy's car didn't come off much better either although he apparently didnt feel the need to go to hospital.
Apparently himself was merrily tootling along the country road doing 60mph when he saw a black Toyota Celica coming around the bend. The driver lost control of the car and veered across the road. He fought to regain control of the car but couldn't and ended up ploughing into our Fiat pushing Robert sideways through a brick wall and into a garden. We're unsure what speed the other car was doing at the time of the accident, but it must have been at least 60mph. Robert was trapped in the car for a while until somebody managed to wrench one of the back doors open. The ambulance service then took Robert to Leighton Hospital A&E in Crewe.
We would like to thank the ambulance and A&E staff for their care. My in-laws (who went to sit at the bedside) were very impressed with their care and efficiency. Also to the South Merseyside Police who have been very helpful in providing information and support after the incident.
Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive in this stressful time. We really appreciate it!!
