Well yesterday turned out to be a very very bad day for us. Before I continue there is nothing racist in my comments just stating facts as they happened and were said. My wife decided to visit her mum in Leeds and set off at about 1145hrs in her beloved HR-V. She headed towards junction 39 of the M1 but as she approached she saw that there was a huge traffic jam so decided to find another route so she went round the roundabout under the motorway and headed back along the A636 towards Wakefield. As she approached the first roundabout on the dual carriageway she slowed to around 30 mph there was a car in front of her about 20 metres ahead of her she noticed it move off and looked to her right to establish that the roundabout was clear for her to pull straight out(which it was) only as she looked to her front now about 5 metres away was the car which had stopped unable to avoid it she stood on the brakes only to run into the rear of it. She has Angina and slight rheumatoid Arthritis and the impact sent pain waves through her body infancy so much she was unable to move. The car in front then drove away from the collision and parked up on the road going into the services on the left. My wife was in shock and basically (pooing) herself as there were a number of HGV's behind her and she was worried one would hit the rear of the car. She was unable to move because of the pain. Obviously she was crying and she tried to reach her handbag on the passenger seat so she could get her mobile phone to ring myself or my daughter as we only live a couple of minutes away, but she was struggling to do this. What happened next is absolutely disgraceful and she said despite the crash this will always live with her!!! She looked out of the windscreen and the f* driver was stood in front of her she thought he was coming to her aid?? Instead he took out his mobile phone and started taking photographs!!!!! He then returned to the side of the road and spoke to a man and woman (who we later discovered were passengers) he then returned to her car and my wife thought oh he's coming to help me??? Oh no yet again he produced his phone and took more photographs. Not once did he assist my wife. She managed to get her phone and called my daughter who was home we both went into racing car mode(sorry West Yorkshire police but I did manage 95mph in a 30 zone to get there). Whilst we were on the way an old gentleman who had seen the accident had stopped close by and went to my wife to see if she was ok only then did she ask him to phone the emergency services. The in the other car and his friends never bothered!!! My daughter arrived shortly before me she got out of her car as my wife was being lifted out of her car on a stretcher... She asked what happened to which a foreign person responded I was driving onto the roundabout and I got scared and stopped and this car hit me from behind???? When I arrived I noticed these three people walking around apparently injury free from their movements especially the lady turning her head to ask the driver for the keys to the car!!! My daughter at the time was photographing the damage to their car for insurance purposes and got some good images of her movements. We were allowed into the ambulance to see my wife when the Police officer came in and stated that the old man had seen my wife run into the back of this guy so it was her fault. My daughter mentioned the fact of the statement he had made regarding stopping(not interested)!!!!!!!!! My wife told him about them leaving her and photographing the car this was despicable!!!! Not interested. I asked if they were foreign ? Yes Eastern European (not mentioning from where guys . Don't want a race war). I said from what I have heard seen and from personal experience of some 20 years in the Army in Europe I think he has been confused at the roundabout and has stopped to give way to a car entering from the road to his left. If you don't know obviously driving on the left in most of Europe you give way to traffic from your right so traffic entering a roundabout has right of way!!! And if he was scared why is he driving on our roads officer?? Not Interested its up to your wife to ensure its clear for her to proceed??? But she did that only to find this k***head had decided to stop on a roundabout on a busy dual carriageway. That to me is causing an accident by driving without due care and attention!!!!! No it's not??? WTF is it then... Well Pat(my wife) ended up in hospital but before she left the scene another ambulance arrived to tend to neck shoulder and other injuries of what looked like perfectly healthy people to me. My daughter confronted them at the hospital regarding the callousness of taking the photographs and not aiding an injured person who was obviously in distress and also told them some home truths about contacting the emergency services. Oh I also questioned the Police Officer about him driving away from the scene of an accident and also why did he do that and because my wife didn't see the driver get out of the car did he establish who was driving and why has no one been breathalised?? Nothing said. Well having surveyed the damage I managed to get the car home my wife spent some time in the hospital mainly because of her heart condition as she had chest pain. I rang my insurance reported everything to them including the statements by the foreigners only to be told well your wife hit him in the rear so it's an at fault accident(thought as much) about time the law was looked at... You will have to pay the excess( £95) and after I told them what the damage was oh we probably won't repair it as its a 1999 car only worth about £1200 so we would only repair up to 60% of its value so from what you have said it will probably be more to repair so it will be a write off!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My wife is absolutely gutted not only did she suffer because of the actions of this guy both physically and mentally but she is loosing her pride and joy while this guy and his friends who don't even belong here (sorry but that's my personal opinion) and probably many other British folks too will get a new car a pile of cash for a fraudulent injury claim and won't even lose his no claims.... He caused this and is getting off Scott free.... I'll post some pictures of the damage a friend of mine had a look earlier today and said if I can get hold of parts it should be easy to repair so now I'm waiting to see what the assessor says before making a decision then I'll start looking for parts to rebuild the front end. But I'm certainly not going to send it to the big scrap yard in the sky for a small some of money that won't cover another.
