what up gang. My story happened December 2009, so about a year and two months ago. On my way to a Atv store in Bel Air, MD i was in a car crash. with the weather cold and snow and stuff still somewhat still around while im at it!
anyways, a car pulled out in front of the car in front of me. We both stopped to stay away from crashing, but the car behind me railed me at full speed.
because of the type of collision and icy friction, it sent my car flying forward, and my only option was to swerve left. i swerved around the car in front towards oncoming traffic, missed the cars, drove....more like pushed into a parking lot in which i kept slamming my breaks and i pulled the e-brake. I came to a full stop. That's when a lady came out and exclaimed that i was a great driver.
Me and my buddy were fine. I felt sick however, i got out and there was barely any damage to my jeep! however, i realized that my muffler was bent into my wheel so i need a tow.
however, The lady who hit me ended up destroying her 2008 highlander. her company paid in full for me and they gave my passenger 100$ for his scraped knee (he had his knee cap leaning on the glove box)
turned out my neighbor knows the lady. She was texting. She just got the vehicle recently at the time. She was getting married in a week. luckily she was ok, some wedding present!!!!
funny thing i'd have to say from the accident was that she hit me so hard that my DVD center in my car fell out!
i can say that its weird when that adrenaline hits you because it felt like slow motion and fast forward at the same time. I can sit here and say that i made the conscious decision to steer left where i knew was space to drive. if i went right, i would have hit a mailbox and then a tree... if not just the tree. (edit: the one in the second picture. ha)
following that winter, some girl hit me during senior week at ocean city, MD. she barely touched me, but she scatched my chrome on my bumper which costed her 600$...well geico 600$... I told her to pay me upfront when she could, but her parents thought it would be smarter to raise her insurance bill.
anyways, the small hit actually bent her bumper and radiator... stupid honda elements.
two accidents within 6 months.... both hit by girls.
