Minor Car Crash
Badtz Maru
Relax, it wasn't me who had the crash. It were my brother and his girlfriend...

I was driving home from Warburton where we had a bit of a family do this arvo, and I spotted, in quick succession, an ambulance, my brother's Girlfriend's car pulled over to the side of the road, and about eight members of my family standing by the side of the road.

So, as you can imagine I pulled over my car! Turned out that one car load of Johanson's had come upon Tim (my brother) and Cate and had also pulled over.

Everyone was fine, although Tim and Cate were shaken. Apparently there'd been a fairly simple four-car bumper-to-bumper type collision. Which then got more complicated when a motorcyclist came belting around the corner and ran into the back of Cate's car! He was the one in the ambulance.

By the time I got there, the other three cars had left, the ambulance was leaving, and all that remained was a largish dent in the back of Cate's car, and a somewhat bent, but upright, motorcycle. Which a couple of locals pushed off the road.

Sounded like someone had been turning into a road on the right of the main road, and someone had tried to go around them. Which confused someone behind them and they went into the back of the turning car... I think!

Cate's car was entirely drivable, so one of my other relos drove them home in it.
