How sad… I’ve owned my car for approximately 2 weeks, and already somebody has hit me.
It was the usual morning routine; I wake up, shower, eat breakfast, run out the car and hurry on up to Weber High School. Only, this morning, when I got to the road that Weber is located on, the traffic was bumper to bumper. Thinking this was a mighty fine condition for a car accident to occur, I kept my distance from the person in front of me.
All of a sudden, the person in front of me slammed on their brakes, so I slammed on mine. Just when I thought everything was going to be okay, and me and my car were in the green… WHAM! The car behind me didn’t brake fast enough, ran into me, and pushed me into the car ahead of me.
Luckily for the gal ahead of me, no damage was done to her Isuzu. My poor Lumina, however, was not in such good shape. The push from behind left a dent in my hood where it was run into the Isuzu’s spare tire, and a rather small ( for the force of the impact ) dent on the back of my bumper. Unfortunately for the Blazer that ran into me, their whole grill was crushed and in pieces.
In the end, the Blazer got the ticket, and the father offered to pay for repairs to my car ( I can see why, it’s cheaper than a 40% increase in insurance rates! ). Anyways, one can only hope he’ll keep to his word…
