Hit on 7/3/11

Well on my way from Wyo to Cali I got rear ended. At about 2 AM passing through Provo, UT. The driver behind me had been following for about 15 minutes at about 6 car lengths back. He suddenly speeds up rapidly and changes lanes behind me. As he nears me he begins to slow down and I assume he is going to pass me on the left lane and as I am looking through my side mirror waiting for him to pass I feel a jerk and realize that he just hit me! We both immediately pull off the interstate and he tells me he fell asleep . . . . Heres the damages.







The exhaust took the brunt of the hit. His insurance has accepted full liabilty so I will be getting fixed up soon as I get home. On a more positive note I met up with Bob and he got some of my interior switched to green LEDs! These crappy pics just dont do it justice but it looks sick!!!

Re: Hit on 7/3/11

damn thats $3k in repairs there. make sure you get it all sorted out to your liking. try to get him to pay out of pocket. its only a couple g but no need for your resale to suffer over cosmetic damage and a new exhaust.

Sorry to hear bro. Doesn't surprise me that happened down in Provo, some of the worst drivers i've ever seen live in this wonderful state of ours

Re: Hit on 7/3/11

Thanks fellers. Yup Joe there goes your exhaust! LOL I figure if he hadn't hit me it could have been a lot worse for the guy so he owes me lol Davy, those pics really do suck the LED conversion makes a HUGE difference. I will need to get a better pic they look a lot dimmer in the pics than they do in person! If you notice my radio is not yet running LEDs so there is a small comparison but it is a huge difference when you see it in person or with a better camera lol
