Sorry for the name on this post but I am really angry!!!!
Erin and Michael eventually got themselves sorted out with a car last week.
Not an expensive car but a good cheap run around.
Thank goodness I said to myself I get my car back and I have my independence again.
When we went to collect the car the guy in the garage told us there was no hurry to get the insurance as it was insured until the 1st of November.
I told them not to leave it too long and get it insured themselves ASAP.
They collected it on Monday and on Tuesday after they picked the kids up from school they were going to the office to get it done.
At 1pm Tuesday afternoon they got in their new car after they had gone for a walk along the Port in Mahon.
Just as they were about to put the keys into the ignition a hire car came along (WHILE THEY WERE STILL PARKED)
and hit them in the back and along the side.
They called us to come into Mahon and help with things (the police ETC)
I jumped into the car and when I got to the Port the PORT POLICE were already dealing with it.
I could not believe the damage that had been done.
Erin was still sat in the drivers seat and said her neck was very sore.
Michael informed me that the other driver carried on driving and, he jumped out of the car and ran after it.
While the woman was still driving he opened the car door and took the keys out of the ignition.
She was an English woman and started shouting at Michael to give her back her keys.
Obviously he said” no you can wait until the police get here”
When I heard this I could not believe she was going to TRY and leave the area.
For a start her car was trashed at the front right and would not have been able to keep driving.
For some unknown reason the Port Police did not see fit to breathalyser her.
I want to know how someone can hit a parked car along a straight piece of road.
The woman made no apology and showed no sign of remorse.
We took Erin to hospital and she is still wearing a neck brace now.
Now it seems that the insurance are making an enquiry as to who’s fault it is……….
The car went into the garage and they are saying it is a complete right off.
They are NOT !!offering the full price of the car and now here we are again with no car for them.
They have gone into Mahon now to see what the insurance and garage have to say now.
Fingers crossed they come back with some good news.
