well it's now over 48hrs, and I did go to the doctor per @Gaurav & @Srikumar's recommendation. Doc said since no vomitting, no broken ribs, no blurry vision and no pain whatsoever, she declared me fit to drive & work again 🙂

I would rather focus on the positive things and the good lucks, so here they are:

  • alhamdulillah I managed to return home unharmed, thanks to every single one in the convoy, I pray God bless you all for your kindness.
  • thanks to my trip marshal @Srikumar for leading the team during the incident. There were other younger blood he could direct & delegate to, but he chose to unroll his sleeves and in the process hit his head against my rear bumper (luckily it's stock fibre... imagine if it's the Y62 with 4mm steel 😱)  
  • it was good luck @Haitham Khattab pushed himself to join the drive eventhough he overslept and started driving at 5:30am. For his presence helped a lot, as we needed an Arabic speaker to translate and bridge the communication with the police.
  • i had a nice recovery driver who shared me his Naan & vegetables lunch
  • in short, eventhough it was an unfortunate incident, I am thankful and happy with the people who surrounded me & helped.

Thanks for asking @Tom B @Rob S @ASAD. , not my first rollover with perfect landing on all 4 wheels, so the shocks were subdued a bit 😅, but nevertheless humbles and amazes me how we're given second..eh i mean... fourth chance. My wife reminded to watch the latest Puss in the Boots movie  😂

And this is the finale good news: only Windshield (500dhs second-hand) + Front Right Fender (300dhs second-hand) + Front Right Passenger Door (300dhs second-hand) are badly damaged. According to the Denting Specialist, the roof can be fixed without replacing the whole roof. I'll probably start a thread on the LC 10K bring-to-life restoration project 😄

@Zed sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident... Alhamdulillah you are safe and...  Hope to see youbsoon with you monster LC soon. 👍

Hope @Haitham KhattabKhattab. Is an expert in dealing with abu dhabi police now... 😜
