Demise of the Green Rocket ..

Alas, I have to report that I & the RV have become the victims of a motor vehicle "altercation".

Returning home after a "family day out", I was cycling on the share path & waiting to cross the road at a set of traffic lights. Suddenly hearing the screech of car tyres, I find myself being shoved sideways & backwards. ... WTF!!

A car has hit me & the traffic lights I am sitting beside.. head-on.

I see the car rolling back across the intersection, I hear the driver restart the engine, thinking he's pulling the car off the road...only to see him drive off!!  Quick thinking I record the registration..
An eye witness stops to see if I'm ok, I immediately tell him to call the Police & Ambulance, as I find I've got a cut to my leg.
Another witness has followed the driver & called Police on him as he's hit a couple of other vehicles as well.

I'm treated by the Paramedics, & speak to the Police, to find that they have the driver under arrest for drink driving, hit & run. Phew, a sigh of relief. .Got 'im!

The poor old RV is looking worse for wear, both front wheels are buckled, the frame is bent at the axle mounts, the body work is badly damaged & split underneath.
