i feel so bad for him, even if he pulls through he will have to find out whats happened. i know 106owners can sometimes be a bit miffy for info, but i read that the car had no MOT? and he wasnt insured bad times

I have heard off one of Nathan's mates that he is in a bad way he has a badly punctured lung a badly broken arm and other minor injuries. I can't believe the car wasn't insured as nath is a sensible guy but if the MOT was up that does make the insurance void. Poor guy hope he make a quick recovery.

Sad news

I don't know either of them but i do hope Nathan makes a full recovery and my thoughts are with the families of the passenger in the sad times.

Must have been going at some speed?

Really does make you wonder though about the safety of these cars. Maybe time to invest in cage, buckets and a good harness.

Take care all and drive sensible
