Feeling Disappointed!

 Remember Austin's new pride and joy - Roger Rodeo?
Sadly Roger is no more. 
About 3 weeks ago, we were involved in a car accident. 
It was no fault whatsoever of Austin's.
 
Austin had a green arrow to turn right. 
The person in the opposite direction, on a red light, 
wasn't paying attention and took off. 
The main thing was that no-one was hurt. If we had been a second more ahead, Nelson and I would have been T-boned.
Although it doesn't look like much, there was major damage to the steering. The insurance company deemed it a repairable write-off and paid out. We did look at getting 
it repaired but it was going to cost too much.
 I am so disappointed for Austin. He hasn't even got his licence yet and has had his first accident. It was his dream car. It was such a good find. The car was immaculate and ran well. If it had been my car, I wouldn't have been as upset.
 Good bye Roger!
Now it's back to car hunting again!

oh no! I know the feeling having lost mine last year in the same way. It's amazing what internal damage is done. So glad people are fine though...

Hello Christine,

I am sure there is another Roger out there waiting for Austin.

Happy days.

Oh my! I am sooooo sorry to hear about the accident and hope that you are both okay. It must have been horrific! I hope insurance sorts everything out but it is a hassle in the meantime. Hugs.

That's such bad luck. I do hope he is not put off driving anymore. Good luck looking for a new car...

Such good news that no one was hurt. Perhaps its a lesson for him to be very aware of the other driver. Tough way to learn it though, poor kid.

Melody said...

That is so terrible. I've only just read this post as I've not been too well and haven't been reading blogs. Thank goodness you are both alright.

Thank the Lord you are both okay, but I can understand his disappointment at losing the car of his dreams. :-(
