got stuck in the car for a while. i was sat on the windscreen calling my dad saying 'dad i've had a crash, i think it looks quite bad but don't worry i'm fine'. couldn't get out because the doors were wedged on the drivers side against the bank and the passenger against a big dense hedge. managed to get out the passenger side by opening the window and climbing into the hedge.
and that last photo is the last i saw of the little fella letter from the insurance came through saying it was a write off on my birthday of all days.
but thankfully i was ok, only scratches were from the hedge!

Biggav, are you able to tell us what happened leading up to the crash? Looks like it was a head on collision?
Putting aside the morbid curiosity it would be interesting to know more.
What were the fatal injuries?
The deformation is actually more progressive than I'd have imagined, looks like the sills have folded by the cross member and you can't help but think a door bar would have helped.
I'm also intrigued by where the seat belt mounting is.
