Unhappy A Sad Day..



Wrecked last week, the highways had been salted, were clear, but I underestimated the ice on a on-ramp, I probably would've been fine, but an SUV had already wrecked on the side of the road and I ran into the back.

I am grateful to walk away of course, my only injury was a burn from the airbag deployment.

Well the picture doesn't show it, but the frame is bent and the engine is pushed up against the firewall, so I assume they are going to total it. the drivers headlight was in hundreds of peices and that alone would cost them over $300 if a body shop fixes it. Radiator, condenser, intake, and other parts will need to be replaced, the ECU didn't look too good...

We'll see what they say though, I've been car shopping and found a 2010 base that's been really well maintained if they do total it.
