Well today around 12:30pm I was on Route 46 going between 40-45mph. When all of a sudden bam. I got hit, brakes locked up and my car slid into the oncoming lane.
A 60-65 year old woman in her newer Dodge Caravan had for some reason decided to floor her gas right into me. Initial point of impact was front passenger tire. Hit me hard enough where my alloy rim cracked in half. At the point of impact I am watching the oncoming traffic thinking, this is it...I thought for sure I was gona die! Coming right at me was a full size Ford Explorer, I think it would have just ran up on my hood and ended up on top of me.
Thank god ( I am not a religious person) or Thank the driver that they were not on the cell phone or distracted at all because they had very quick reflexes and slam on the brakes and skidded around me.
If anyone would have been in the passenger side of my car I just don't think they would have made it. Hell I don't think I should have made it. I went and cleaned out my car a couple hours ago and talking to the Body repair shop owner, he said at minimum using used parts it would be $4,000 to fix. Bonnie was 14 years old and 3 weeks ago turned the 100k mark. I have already put atleast $1,000 into her within the past year to the point where she was a perfect running and driving car.
I already miss the Bonneville! I guess I should be happy that I am able to sit here and type this right now.
I guess this will be one of the last times in this forum so I would like to say THANK YOU! For all the help everyone has given me in the past!
Here are the pictures, I forgot to take a picture of the inside. My entire dash is cracked and my glove compartment broke in half. Here is what I have at least.
Anyone have any ideas how much her insurance company will pay? Guesstimates are ok too!
