Fill it up and write it off.
Imagine filling up your Aston Martin DBS at the gas station, minding your own business as you eagerly wait to open up that 5.9-liter V-10 on the highway, and then WHAM! It’s all gone. That’s essentially what happened to an owner of an Aston Martin DBS in the town of Swindon, England.
While filling up the $275,000 Aston Martin DBS, a driver of a Vauxhall Corsa that had just left the fuel station lost control of the car in the adjacent roundabout, drove over the curb, and hit the DBS, pushing the super car into the pump and knocking it off its station. The kicker is that it was a beat up, cheap, and pink Corsa that caused the accident, making this one of those stories that your friends wouldn’t believe without witnessing.
The anonymous owner of the Aston Martin DBS said, “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 curb and came straight into the car. My car moved into the pump and bumped the pump off.
‘It will be a write-off. They won’t fix that.”
The other driver, 24-year old Natasha Gregory was upset as well for the accident and went to Facebook to voice her apology and frustrations, saying:
“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.
I don’t really care what’s said, I feel like a total d***head and am gutted and so sorry to the other driver, was not his fault at all. The only person I give a s*** bout is the other driver, bless him.”
Thankfully, nobody was injured in the accident except for the stress and anguish of dealing with insurance and knowing the Aston Martin DBS is gone for good. Just watch out for those pink Vauxhall Corsas!
