Barbie Pink Vauxhall Corsa hits Aston Martin DBS in petrol station!
Published: Thursday 14th of March 2013 | Author: Scott | Category: Industry News
A young female motorist was left red faced, or should that be 'pink-faced' when she lost control of her Barbie Pink Corsa at a petrol station in Swindon and ended up hitting an Aston Martin DBS. The driver of the Aston was filling his pride and joy and thankfully no one was hurt in the incident.
The 24 year old driver, Natasha Gregory has spoken about the crash via the 'Shout Out Swindon' facebook page. She claims to have clipped the kerb which caused her to loose control of her Vauxhall Corsa and hit the Aston Martin DBS. Apparently the Aston has already been written off by the insurance company!
Natasha commented: "I feel like a totat d***head" via the social network and continued to comment: "Ummmm it was me and it was an accident. y the hell would I wonna go into aston martin (sic)!! I'm glad everyones fine, and I have u know I clipped a curb (I'm sure everyone has) and the steering went. S*** happens glad no one was hurt."
The driver of the Aston seems to have taken the incident well from what Natasha wrote: "The other driver was not his fault at all and he never tried to kill me. Yea cars at scrap yard, the only person I give a s*** bout is the other driver bless him thank good no one was hurt."
Looking at the pictures you'd have thought that hitting the road sign might have been the cheaper option! The driver of the Aston commented: "I was filling up and then I saw the car coming towards me. She drove out of the petrol station onto the roundabout, lost it and came over the kerb and straight into my car. My car moved into the pump and bumped the pump off."
Although paramedics were called to the scene of the incident, neither driver was hurt. The petrol station in question was closed while worked was carried out to repair the damaged pump.
A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said: 'We were called at 2.55pm to reports of two cars colliding on the forecourt of the Esso petrol station. One of the cars had gone into a pump. There was no fire but there was a strong smell of fumes."
To crash into the Aston, Miss Gregory crossed a traffic island where she missed one large sign before avoiding any passing traffic. She then drove between two other road signs before hitting the stationary Aston as the driver attempted to fill it up with fuel.
A spokesperson for Esso added: "We are aware of a vehicle collision that occurred just before 3pm on Tuesday afternoon at Kingshill service station. The service station staff immediately called the emergency services, and assisted those involved. Apart from the damage to the vehicles involved, the collision caused only minor damage to two pump nozzles, and the site returned to normal working yesterday afternoon."
