Good Ole' Chrysler Withstands 2 Accidents Today!
With the heavy snow we've been getting.. I was heading to the store when the snow first started here in CT around 3:00pm. My mother was in passenger seat.. traffic was @ a crawl going on to highway, so I decided to take back roads around.. Was headed down the hill nice & slow, with a Ford Expedition in front of me. We were going down the hill when all of a sudden the expedition went sideways sliding down it.... I then seen a Ford Windstar sitting @ the light.. the car was in 1st gear, going about 5MPH when my car just began sliding out down straight for the van!
I turned left was going to go on other side of the road and blow through the light, but I was sadly mistaken when cars began coming up... I swerved to the right, but there was a stone wall I would have slammed into, so I had no other choice but to run into the van.. and BAAAM! :dozeoff: was bracing for airbags to pop out, as I must have hit her about 10MPH... thank God they didn't.. got out.. van was fine, looked @ mine quick and to my suprise, as I was expecting the worst, only damage was drivers side fog light, and bumper pushed in!!
The lady was in aww that her van had no damage & the force I hit her @ with my damage.. Cop pulls up, says "we're trying to get public works down to sand this hill.. it's all ice".. I'm like DUH.. really! cop wanted us to file report, I didn't want this to go to my insurance company, so I basically talked the lady out of it... :bigsmile: so on we go.. stopped @ auto store, got winter blades, as I swear by them... (keeps snow off w/ rubber boot).. looked @ car & fog light,bumper is popped back out! only minor scratch, that you can barely see now. so I was VERY happy @ that point.. all's I needed to fix now is the already broken POS headlight bracket being held on my 1 screw.. managed to do the errands, on the 2 hour way home with the traffic, I was turning onto main rd from side st.. when I see this 95+ Mercury Cougar coming @ me as she was turning into st.. I gunned it, but almost went into oncoming traffic.. so I stopped.. & BAAM again.. NO DAMAGE! God was with me today.. I'll tell ya... something with Fords hitting me today.. scary! :mg: Anyway.. sorry for the long post, just wanted to share INTREPIDS are great in accidents! already had one with this car, with a 40MPH inpact by an as*hole.. (now still attempting to sue me.. search for post.. it was 2 years ago) not that any accident is great.. u know what I mean.. LET IT SNOW, SO I HAVE NO WORK TOMORROW!
