I hate it when I am "that guy"
Well.. it was bound to happen sometime... I was in an accident today.
Comin around the turn on a local busy spot in Eau Claire (yea... whouda thunkit?) and there were a couple of cars panic stopping for a car making a left hand turn (signals would really be nice).. and I wasn't able to stop in time. (I had looked down breifly at my speedo, goin 29 mph...) I looked up from my speedo maybe 50 feet from where the gal in front of me was jamming on her brakes.. and wasn't able to stop in time. I was probably going 10-15 when I hit her, and let me tell ya... it scared the shit outta me....
Bent my hood a bit, broke one of the Headlight mounts more (it was already broken... ), scratched my bumper up and mangled my License plate. all the radiators and cooling lines are all in tact and show no physical damage.
Her car, on the other hand, is a different story.
Apparently the uni-body GM cars can't take a hit, as her bumper looked 100% fine, but her lower tail-pipe waas bent a bit. Also, the back passenger side was crumpled.... BLEH.
We both had insurance, both through the same insurance company, (not the same branch tho, mine is outta Hartland, hers Eau Claire), and no injuries were taken, or reported.
it doesn't appear my insurance rates will change much beyond a $30 per year deduction for incident-free on my vehicle....
anyone know where I can get a new hood for cheap?
