... when a crane ran into it and smashed up the back.
The driver was pretty freaked out by what he had done. He's thinking of paying for the damage himself so he doesn't have to tell his boss. A friend was driving past and saw what happened. If he hadn't I think it's possible that the crane guys might have done a runner.
It's annoying for us, but it's an old car and we have another. I wonder if the crane driver has stopped shaking yet?
