Hi All, Was driving northbound along the A21 earlier, stuck in some stationary traffic when the car directly in front of me suddenly leapt forward and into the oncoming lane (single lane either way at this point of the road) and hit the rear of the car coming the opposite way, before hitting the front of the car immediately behind that. It then narrowly avoided the next two cars ( all of which were moving at around 30mph) before swerving back into the northbound lane and coming to rest partly on the verge, part in a hedge, and blocking the lane. Here's a terrible little diagram done in paint, with the offending car and it's path in Yellow. After checking everyone is ok a discussion with the old boy driving it brings to light he is claiming that "My brakes failed, couldn't stop in time" The thing is, we were stationary at the point he jumped off, and even after hitting the first car AND the second car, he was still accelerating before he pulled back in. At no point during the accident did his brake lights come on. The people in the two other vehicles involved both assumed he had a heart attack or blacked out, one saying he looked hunched over the wheel as he hit them. I'm the only person who was stupid enough to give my details as a "not involved" witness at the scene and now it seems that my account is being brought into doubt by the old boy's insurance company. There's talk of having to go to court with it and having insurance bods visit my house to take more statements, which all sounds like terrible hassle. Anyone got any experience of such situations and a clue about what the hell I should do?
