I'm fine. I was stationary with my feet on the road when the collision happened. I was still stationary with my feet on the road immediately afterwards. Apart from the pannier, there is no obvious damage anywhere else to the bike though it will be easier to tell in daylight.

It's the hassle which ensues that I find most objectionable. Having to ride over to the bike shop, get estimates for the repair bill, inform my insurance company and so forth.

Luckily the other guy admitted he was at fault ("my wheels just locked") and I have full contact details, etc.
