My wife was involved in a terrible accident yesterday with our '05 Bonneville GXP. She was at a stop light which was on the back side of an intersection with a railroad trestle. The light turned green, she went under the trestle, and a Ford F150 doing at least 45 MPH T-boned her on the driver'* side as she emerged from under the trestle after he ran a red light.
Most of the impact centered from the front wheel back to the beginning of the front door. The side view mirror was sheared off, but we were able to open the driver'* side door. None of the air bags went off, but the car was pushed sideways about 20 feet.
They took my wife to the hospital after putting her on a back board as a precaution. The X-rays didn't show anything fractured or broken, and they released my wife 3 hours later. She is sore, but doing fine.
I'll have to wait and see what the insurance adjuster says about the car. But, one bad thing I noticed was that the roof was buckled just above the driver'* side rear door. I've always heard that is a sign of major uni-body damage.
If the car is totalled, my wife wants to replace the Bonneville with a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8. Can't complain about that!
I'll keep eveyone here posted on what happens.
