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.
