Spoke to the Police, they were aware. Owner was arranging recovery.

Considerable distance from the wet road.

I didnt leave a card...

Ouuuuch! :(

Whereabouts was it? And was it wrapped that colour, or is it a trick of the light?

I'll ditto that "ouch".

That's a good looking colour, and nice wheels too. Such a shame to have such a great car like that, and then write it off like that.

2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though - good.

I dont like to speculate how, I will say that before we got to it, Tresha said did it rain that much?, its very wet.

I went back that way this afternoon, and it has been recovered.

From the marks on the grass, I would guess it was travelling West, so had just come through the 2 mini roundabouts. Yellow marks the position it came to rest.

A warning to others about only accelerating in the wet once you are straight?

Was a looked after, 2010, car (wrapped, I think, Chubbs)

Yes, having experienced very similar almost ten years ago to the day, I would imagine (and hope) that the driver will be able to smell nothing but cordite for a day and have a stiff neck for about a week, and not much more.  Oh, perhaps a regret or two for a good while longer.  And hopefully a lesson or two learned for life.
