Been in a wreck?

so i cant let gCobalt be the only person in here starting this random freaking thread so i decided to get one going. this is for any wreck you've ever been in. post up the pics and tell your story. i'll start first

I was pulling out of sonic into the turn around on the highway when this guy that was trying to beat traffic pulled out and gunned it. he drove down the entire left side of my car and if i hadn't moved he would have hit the fender instead of the door. his insurance covered it. body shop quoted me two weeks...turned into three months. New door, axle, rear suspension, bumper, quarter panel, rim, and a lot of frame work on the rack. took them two tries to get a decent paint job and i had to open up a claim with the Better Business Bureau on them.






i haz broken wal-mart wheel in that last one

that damn 1982 GMC Sierra wasnt soft either

wow, why was it not totalled? Looks and sounded like it should of been if it had something to do with the frame.

I have no pics of my two accidents. First once when I had my Lincoln LS8. I was leaving work and was going out of an aisle in the parking lot. I stopped(no sign mind ya) and looked both ways like 3 times each and just as I gunned it(so to speak) I see this truck driving over the front end of the car and almost rolling. It was a silver Silverado lol. Tore up the front of the car good, one month at the shop and it was better than it was before the wreck lol.

The second was when I had my Cobalt LS. I was driving over a bridge that was two lanes for about a 1/4 mi. I was in the lane that would remain open. Just cruising and when I got to the end where the other lane ends some van, ford windstar, just flys up beside me and tried to cut over infront, instead he nailed my passenger side fender. It was some young punk in his parents vehicle trying to take his lil brother to school. They tried to later say it was all my fault, hahaha. My car was driveable till the shop got the parts in, but the fend and hubcap needed to be replaced along with the headlight, hood and bumper just needed to be touched up. Best part, was there was no one behind me, so why the hell didn't he just get in behind!?!? There wasn't room for anything to get infront as there was 3 cars ahead. Douchebags!

because it didnt come up to the "totaled" amount. it was only 1 year and 3 months old so they wouldnt total it because it was still worth too much. i call bullshit. progressive insurance is a waste of life. and yeah..the guy tried to blame it on me too, till they saw the damage on my car and i had like 3 witnesses to the wreck

1. Friend rolled a car when I was a passenger my senior year in high school...totaled her car, we both came out ok, nothing serious...were lucky. Someone turned in front of us to turn left out of the right hand lane on a one way road. She hit the car & then the curb, which somehow cause it to roll over on its top. I had a head injury, so their insurance company hounded my parents for a year to sign off on it, they never did.

2. Been hit from behind just sitting at a red light minding my own business. I was in my WRX I'd purchased with road rash on the front bumper. Lady slammed into me full speed and pushed me into the car in front of me. Got both bumpers fixed like new out of that one. The lady told the police she'd just gotten her car fixed from an accident in a parking lot the month before! Then she "forgot" to tell her insurance agent about my front bumper, claimed it was just my back bumper. Her agent wasn't very happy.

3. Again sitting at a red light in a left turn lane. Person in front of me slams it into reverse and backs into me because he freaked out at a truck turning. Trucker finished his turn and probably laughed about it the rest of the day. I was driving an 1980 AMC Eagle wagon with bounce back bumpers. My car was unharmed, his minivan tailgate was crunched. He didn't even bother getting off his cell phone & didn't want to report it & drove off.

well I don't have pics of mine either. we were coming back to Fort St John from Vancouver(about 14 hours) and a bit over half way theres a mountain stretch with no cell service and super dangerous. a lady lost control of her caliber and hit the barricade. we came around the corner and saw it so we pulled over to help her. my dad got out and I put on my shoes and went to get out(I was in the back seat of our truck). as I went to get out a guy came around the corner with a empty horse trailer and lost control(he was doing about 130km/h in an icy 90 km/h zone) and his truck fishtail and like an idiot he over corrected so much that the trailor came whipping at our truck. it missed my dad(out at helping the lady) by about a foot and slammed into the back corner of our truck. it destroyed the bed and ripped off the axle. It toalled up to be about $40K in damage to our truck alone. unfortunately it was a like two month old sierra half ton and it is the highest most optioned model so it wasn't written off. the funny part is about 2 weeks later I was giving my grandma and one of her friends a ride to the airport and the lady told me about how her nephew was in an accident a couple weeks ago... sure enough it was the same a hole

Well I haven't been in a "wreck", but I had my car backed into by a neighbor of my in-laws while parked in front of their house last year. It was around $1000 in damage for just a minor bump and a lot of scratches to the driver's side rear quarter just above the wheel well. Her insurance covered the repairs and my rental so I can't complain.
