Got into an accident!

Today was one of the worst days of my life. I was on the freeway, right behind a PRIUS. I was about 2 seconds behind him and we were all going about 40mph, a bit of traffic. All of a sudden, the Prius slams on his brakes, and well I couldn't brake hard enough in time and I rear ended him. His rear bumper is not that bad, just a few scuffs. But my car is a different story, my hood is dented up, front bumper is sagging a bit, my drivers side almost NEW fx-r retrofitted headlight lens cracked. My radiator is bent a bit and the support for it is not usable no more. Probably a few more damages, but I'm towing my car over to a shop tomorrow morning to see how much its going to cost me.


.....today was one of the worst days of my life.

Re: Got into an accident!

I feel you man, sounds like you really love your car like me. When i got into my small accident, ALOT smaller than yours, i was already heart broken and super pissed at myself for being so careless(knowing i could avoid these accidents on a daily basis and the one time you dont pay attention, bam). Hope all is well. Wish you the best luck on everything. I just redid my front bumper and passenger headlight and some support brackets were broken, I was quoted $1800! freakin ridiculous.

Re: Got into an accident!

Yea, I'm pretty pissed at myself, I couldve pulled ebrake and downshift, but it all happened too quick, freakin priuses... I only have 1 way insurance because my car was a salvage title to begin with, now I have to pay my car out of my pocket, and I'm just worried how much the prius guy is going to ask for.

Re: Got into an accident!

That sucks man, I experienced almost this same instance just a couple of months ago. Luckily for me there was no damage to my frame, rad, support, etc. But it was a total pain to go through.

In the end, it was actually a beautiful thing considering I got a new hood (without the rust spot), new crispy headlights, and a fresh spray of paint. Now my lude is cleaner than ever.
Hopefully something good comes out of this for you man.

Re: Got into an accident!

That sucks man. Sorry to hear about it. I was unaware of such a thing with a salvaged car and insurance. That's rough and something I would definitely look into if ever thinking about buying one. Hope all goes well with getting if fixed and sourcing parts. I feel your pain on the messing up a set of retros. I'm always concerned with that.

However....if this is the worst thing that has happened to you, you are a very, very lucky person....

Re: Got into an accident!

Well, one of the worst, so far the worst that I can recall. I'm just hoping the prius guy won't f*** me over.
