    The Beast Meets It\'s Maker

    Well, this morning was not a good morning. I was turning on the street that my school was on from w left hand turn lane. I turned into the right hand lane, and then got over into the feft hand lane. There was this old school black ford escort sitting stopped in the left lane waiting to turn onto a street, and i didnt see it. So by the time i got a chance to slam on my breaks i had already rear-ended the [censored] out of the escort. So i got out to see if they were ok, and didnt even think about turning around to look oat my car, cause their car was shot to [censored]. So, the lady driving said she was ok. so i turn around to get my insurance card out of my truck, and i see the front left quarter of my car is pretty f-ed up. Its not all that bad...dont get me wrong its bad, but its a bad feeling when you see your baby like that. So this lady wants me to push her car with my brush guard onto the street she was trying to turn onto, and i tell her no because i dont want to cause any more dammage then i already have to either of our cars. So, she and her friend and i push her car onto the street, and she starts yelling at me..understandable. To then i pull my car over to that street, and at that point that black air dam thats under the bumper is vigorously rubbing my left front tire. I pull up behind her, and i see how badly i hit her car. I really nailed the [censored] out of her p.o.s. escort. Anyhow, they are fine...like physically, until the cops show up and then she complains of having back pain, and junk like that. So two ambulances show up to pick all five of the people that were in her car up. We had already traded info and stuff like that...the ambulances have left and my mom is there in her car. I get back in my truck and look at her car, and cant help but laughing at how badly i messed up that car! I mean yeah my insurance will pay for it and my primium will go up and i will will have to cover the money it, but i was in my tank of a car...hahah, sorry i guess its good to be able to laugh about it...i guess. Anyhow, ill try to post pics of my trck when i can, and if i can get pics of the escort ill post them too. The Beast will need new front left quarter panel, blinker, headlights, parking lights, grille, a bumper, nothing under the hood seems to be damaged, so thats good. I thnk the escort is totaled. Man, i have pieces of that car on my bumper and brush guard. hah! Anyhow, jus thoguht i would share my expensive experience with you guys.
    Have a great day, and for gods sake, drive safely.

    Actually you don't ever want to be in an accident. Even though the damage doesn't look that bad you will find out later that some things just don't line up like they use to.

    Yea, it is funny as hell, I saw a Suburban that rear ended a car and the car was all smashed up but the burban had a little fender and bumper damage. I'm glad I didn't end up getting a Mustang (especially with the gas tanks up to the bumper)
