As you can imagine by the fact that I am able to write about this in a fairly light-hearted vein, I was not hurt and neither was the driver of the other vehicle (What could have happened --- no, we're not even going there.)
"Well, I think we can treat this as a 'knock for knock'," said the police officer who attended the scene. "Oh, do you," I thought. "Not bothered to look at the skid marks from the other vehicle, then?" But I didn't say anything - I just wanted it not to have happened.
By then Keith had arrived on the scene and ascertained that it was still driveable, so I drove back, following him.
He said he was very proud of me for doing that. Gold star for me, then!
But it looks like I'll be walking to my counselling work on Monday. Let's hope it won't be raining.
