|My car :-(|
|I guess they design cars to crumple. Mine crumpled well; nothing on the inside smashed in.|
|Doors won't open, windows won't roll|
|Rear left window knocked out of place. Won't roll up or down.|
|The other car. Pretty minor damage.|
I was heading northbound and I suppose I had seen it going southbound, but of course I didn't expect it to turn. It wasn't even that it turned in front of me ... it hit me square in the side. The impact jarred me and I'm pretty sure my head hit the side of my car, but not too hard. I braked as my car started to spin and then came to a stop. I called 911 who told me to call another number since there were no apparent injuries. The other number said, "No one is available at this time. Current wait time is 3 minutes." What good does that do me? I hung up and called Anne to come and she did. I couldn't open my doors to get out of the car, so I had to crawl over to the passenger's side. The other lady got out and said she just hadn't seen me there.
We waited for a police officer to come do a report, and then I called my insurance company who took the information. I only have liability because my car is a '97 with 147,000 miles and not worth a lot. They said I have to call her insurance company to file the claim and get an assessor to decide how much damage was done. Her insurance doesn't do claims on weekends so I have to wait until Monday at 8 a.m. I'm very glad it wasn't my fault. I'm very glad no one was hurt.
That was a close one,
