To be honest you really shouldn't be saying anything on here, the other gentleman at the moment cannot defend himself and comment so have some respect

Surely you should not even be able to comment on this post purely because you are directly involved in this incident . You seem like as if you just want to put your side of the story over and as we all know there are 2 sides to every story.

For God's sake. The idiot who is lecturing you about your bonnet flying up is unreal. If, heaven forbid, things had taken a far more tragic turn the man in question would possibly be tried for death by dangerous driving. Irrelevant of why you were on the side of the road he hit you because he want paying attention on what is a dangerous stretch of road! Hope you and your baby are ok

Hi Sarah Kate, I was the first woman on the scene (the one who took the phone from you to speak to the emergency services) - I'm really pleased to have found a way to contact you. I just wanted to make sure you were okay. Please don't respond to anyone on here questioning you and certainly don't take any stupid comments about your responsibility to heart. People these days seem to believe because they hear a little bit of news they have the right to pass comment on you without knowing a single fact. I'm really glad you and the baby are okay. Take care x

Torynp - thank you so much for the help and being with me yesterday, it was such a shock not just for me but for everyone who witnessed the accident. It just shows how quick things can happen.
We are both okay thank you just whiplash and abit startled.
People will always talk when they don't know the facts but when the man comes around and the story comes out I'm sure they will keep their opinions to their self!
Anyway thanks again you was a great help.
Take care xx

Gfxbillboy, how is your friend? I was with him for quite a while but obviously I couldn't do very much. I tried phoning the police to find out how he is but they won't tell me because I'm not a relative. I really hope he's going to be okay? Torynp
