*cry*

Well, driving home today from dropping a friend off at her house, I got into an accident. pics are as follows:









story:
I was on the intersection of Memorial and Durand (for us SEW people) turning left onto Durand. The minivan was behind a civic which was turning right so I assumed I had enough time to get through the intersection safely and that was that. Well, The minivan decides to pull around the damn Civic, race out into the intersection just as I was turning left and by the time I hit the brakes and tried to steer out of the way, it was too late. She ended up getting away with a dented rear sliding door as well as scratches here and there and one Seriously scratched up wheel. I got the damage done plus my side was dented completely in (I was able to pop it out after the cop saw it etc.) Well, that's the story. $156.20 fine for failure to yeild turning left. Damn minivans....

Yes, it means a lot. YOU ARE A NOVICE DRIVER. I wouldn't have gotten into that accident.

Once again, a showing of poor leadership skills. Moderators should not be causing accidents.

I'll leave you alone, I know how hurtful it feels to have a damaged car.

Just out of curiosity, say you went to court and beat the ticket, whose insurance covers the damages?

I hope you're joking...

Janeil, My insurence would cover her damages. I'm on my own with mine no matter what.

Karburator, it's not that serious, just need a new bumper, fender and hood (screw tryin to bang them out. I'll just get some cheap ones from my friend and JY to re-paint)
