I was driving down the road and a car in front of me turning left so I slowed down, it turned, and BLAM traffic dead stopped in the middle of the road. I rear-ended some girl in her early 90's Civic. Her bumper was hanging off from the corners nothing too major.

I didn't get a ticket and the cop told me to call my insurance co. and get my ride fixed. He said it was a bad section of road because of the crest in the road that I was coming over.

She said she was okay when I walked up to her car, she was shakin up a little bit as can be expected. Her parents showed up and started giving me shit about speed and learing how to drive.. I was going less than 30 on a 35mph posted road. My airbags did not even deploy.

Like the time, in a pal's new cruiser, I drove up under a big water truck looking left to see if anything was coming. The truck stopped in front of me instead of turning right. Wump! My captain worked the crash......... sad.gif

Nick, it could have been worse..............

Being younger I am hoping she has limted tort insurance therefore giving up her right to sue.. Most kids take that option because their insurance ends up being lower.

Yep I just got the wheels back on, and the check from the insurance company minus the $250 deductable I had to pay... This deductable will be $500. Her car was not that bad, probably just have to stick a new bumper on their for her.

I have a laptop on ebay for sale, hopefully someone will bid it up to $500 rolleyes.gif

That car has bad karma.

Glad you're OK, be glad the airbags did not deploy. Those things tear you up. Sorry your new ride is bunged up, here's my story.


Thursday two weeks ago my twin daughters, ages 10, were having their birthday party, and we had a day at the lake planned. Started raining before we left and I was going over to a sporting goods store with a sale going on.

Within sight of my house, a little gal, about 20, rounded the curve with her brother headed to the emergency room because he dumped Drano and Liquid Plumber in his eyes, and smaked the crap out of me and my new Denali (4 months old). She was doing about 45 to 50, I was doing 25 having just pulled out of my driveway.

Totaled her car, a new Mercury Cougar, and did $12,000 in damage to mine.

Everyone banged up, and we were lucky no one was hurt seriously. I've been stiff for a few days, and have some lingering shoulder and low back issues, but I think time will take care of most of it. Long live Lorotab!!!!

Wife handled the kids with the boat on the lake, I spent the afternoon in the ER with Drano boy.
