I thought Police had to attend all road traffic accidents? Glad to hear you are okay James. Cars can be replaced, lives can't. It could have been so much worse mate.

tough break mate. glad you're okay.
so basically, the way to get any attention is to not swerve out of the way, risk your life, but ensure the stupid **** pay the price too.
and i thought i had it bad but at least the government is willing to pay compensation out of the kindness of their hearts : When it rains in the desert!
did you see those pictures? crazy driving? 118+ dead and still counting.

Glad to hear you're OK! A word of advice - don't even think of relying on the police to do anything useful these days. Sad but true.

Maybe where you are - but here they are very good and take a great deal of care.

BUT James, you are OK, and that is all that REALLY matters.

Glad you're OK bud. As has been said it's only a car. I am amazed that the police didn't attend though bearing in mind you damaged someones house.

Glad you're OK James... look on the bright side... you can get a better car now

This happened to my sister a few years back, she had nowhere to swerve to. The fire service that attended said that she was lucky she had nowhere to go, if she'd swerved out of the way and the guy had still hit her, she'd have been killed and more than likely the rear seated passenger would have died too.
Thank the gods for compulsory seat belts (and airbags).
Glad you are unscathed James if a little light on a car and cash.

Glad you're ok mate, wouldn't the same without you.

Glad to hear you are okay mate - it could have been damned nasty.
As has already been said - your car can be replaced - but you - cannot.
I hope things pick up for you and work out for the best

Ouch. Glad you weren't injured James!

It's annoying to think some d*&% is at home not bothered about causing an accident. He/she probably doesn't know if you are dead or alive, and probably couldn't care less either way.
It might cost you an arm and a leg to get things sorted pal, and it couldn't come at a worse time of the year. But I'm sure given the choice it's better to pay a few hundred quid at Xmas than to have your family/friends have to have Xmas without you.
Glad to here you're ok pal, and I hope these t*%£'s get theirs too!

Also very glad he's OK (and it's a real tribute to his driving and the quality of the car that he is!)

Make sure people are okay and deal with the situation?
