phone calls you dont like to get

  1. I just got a one of them phone calls you hope you never get, from the sounds of it a possible drunk driver trying to get away from the police, ran into the back of my sisters car! She was coming home from the holiday home at Aireys Inlet. From what ive been told it was as she was heading threw Geelong, slowing for a red light
    She has to stay in hospital for a check up for at least 4 hours, as she had a bit of whiplash from the crash
    My father seems to think her car (a few month old Toyota echo) is a write off….

  4. I'm glad that it sounds like she is physically OKish and hope that emotionally/psychologically it doesn't weight her down. Hope you're doing well in the later as well.

  5. Hope she's ok, you're right about the phone call you never want to get but a worse call could have been forthcoming! Remember why we are taking part in the "Ride for Justice" tomorrow!

  6. some people are just dick heads
    it makes you wish the coppers would give them a good beating and a bullet instead of taking them to court .

    i hope your sister has a speedy recover and that they hang this bastard.

    we ban tabacoo advertising in sport and stop people smoking in the open , but continue to let idiots drink and get behind the wheel .
    and thats excepable ?

  9. I was at a wedding on the 16th Oct and got a call. My girlfriends family had been in an accident on the Princes Hwy, in Pakenham (it was on the news). There was her 2 brothers and a cousin in the car, following their parents to another cousins engagement party, when a Drunk driver came across from on coming traffic and collected them head on. The drunk driver was going 160km and lost control.

    The boys were all taken to hospital and are now recovering (at home). One has a gash on his leg, the other a broken collar bone and ribs and the other (the cousin) got out of hospital only last weekend after major surgery on his stomach and bladder.

    The worst thing about it is, the parents were just missed by the drunk driver and all turned around to see their sons get hit head on. They pulled over and ran back to the car, not knowing what they would find.

    I recently heard the drunk driver has head injuries, a broken back and shattered legs and has lost an ear.

    Even though it wasnt my family, but my girlfriends, we all went through some traumatic times seeing the boys and images of the car. We raced home the next day and the whole family were still hysterical waiting for the news on the cousin in surgery.

    So Phanoonogy, I sort of know how it feels and it sucks. Dont even ask me what I think of the drunk driver.

  13. Hi Phanoongy,

    I am glad that your sister is OK. It's a shame about the car but it did its job well and someone else should be paying for a replacement.

    Best wishes

  18. Thanks for all your support, my sister Kerryn will be getting a brand new car to replace it as it’s under a year old (well it would have been replaced in the 1st 2 years….. From the sound of it if she had any one on the back seat, they would have been dead....... as the 4wd was doing about 150 KPH just a little bit up the road when it past a cop car. She is home and a tad on the stiff side, from the sounds of it she has a few burses and a cut in the back of her head (we can’t work out what did this though)

  20. glad to hear she is ok
    farkin drunk drivers
    be good to let them have their own road, so they can all smash and kill only themselves
    but then it punishes their families
