It is now classed as a write off. But, intrepid hubby doesn't give up that easily. It was insured, so that is good. But, hubby likes this vehicle and reckons he will get it back on the road. He, of course, will do all the work himself.
I should tell you that hubby wasn't hurt, just very badly shaken up. In all our years of owning a property and living in the country, neither of us have had a serious encounter with a roo. I came close some years ago, but was lucky that the animal veered off slightly at the last minute and I just felt it's massive tail hit my car. It put a decent dent in my little Toyota. Other than that, we have been very lucky. When I questioned him about the roo, he said by the time he managed to get off the road where he wouldn't cause a problem for other traffic, the roo was no where to be seen. It would have been badly injured. It would be a miracle for it to survive. Hubby said he looked around for some time trying to see if it had collapsed in the bush nearby, but it wasn't there. I don't know what he would have done if he found it and it was still alive. A roo at the best of times is not to be trifled with, unless it's a tame one in an animal park.
Oh well, it looks like hubby will have another project to keep him busy for some time !!
