October 2, 2007Well, it happened. Never had any kind of accident with another car before then. here's how it happened...
going to work at about 6:45am going about 50 or so. I see some cars stopped behind a schoolbus so I start coasting down and applying a little brake. I get probably to about 30mph and they're starting to move again so I just coast a little more up to the last car in line. At about 15 maybe 20mph and 2 cars back hehind the guy in front of me, the dude slams on brakes (highschooler who wasn't paying attention). I get on mine kinda hard right after I see the back of his car come up and my car just slides into his. Both airbags go off, but i'm not going fast enough to even touch them. Broke my grill (which i think hit the airbag sensors which made them go off), broke my hood, messed up my front bumper, headlights, bent the passenger's side front fender and pushed it back into the door, and it bent the core/radiator support in some.
insurace totaled it, I got a check for it and bought it back so it's sitting outside right now covered and pretty much factory lol
i'll probably be parting it out soon. Just thought i'd let everyone know. I signed up when the car was pretty much stock, and I'm still here as the car is totaled and back to pretty much stock haha.
car is up for sale on the corral. you can see pictures here:
