Another Car Accident

April 6th, 2007 at 10:55 am

...and this time it was me with my beloved Equinox.

I decided to head into work early today to get in some extra hours and maybe come home a bit earlier since everyone else has Good Friday off.

Winter had returned to our area and the plows had not been out on the roads yet this morning. I came around a bend, only going 35 mph because the roads were so bad, when I hit a patch of ice and just totally lost control. By the time I landed in a deep ditch I was facing the opposite way of the direction I had been going.

The car was almost totally on the driver side. I had to be helped out of the passenger door by one of the people that were following me. The first thing they asked was if my neck hurt because the impact was so hard.

It's amazing that the car really doesn't look bad at all. The most damage is up front, but it's not crumpled at all like you would expect. The driver's side that it landed on is not messed up at all that we could see.

I am sure I'll have some bruising. I can already feel some aches and pains.

So my car is now keeping DS's car company at the body shop. This will hit our Emergency Fund with a solid $500 punch.

Good news on his though...they did total it but the bus' insurance has decided to give him over $1900 for it. We have no idea why they went from $800 to $1900, but they did!

    Wow, glad you are okay! I'm glad the bus insurance is going to pay for your son's car. Hubby once got rear ended on the highway and the shock went up his arm and into his neck. His arm and neck on one side was so sore. Hope you don't feel too much pain the next few days! Sending good thoughts.....

    Oh dear ... Get lots of rest this weekend, as your body has been through a shock and you may not feel all the hurts until all of the adrenalin has worn off.

    glad you're ok!!! take care of yourself: lots of rest and a hot bath for sore spots...

    as for the drama with DS's car: glad to hear he's getting a proper amount from the insurance company. it sounds like they're giving more than you had estimated was necessary to cover his repairs and upgrades (if i'm remembering correctly).
