Here is the revised version of what happened with pics. I should have the police report on Tuesday.

About 8:20 on 8/25/06 at the crossing of Hands pike and 17 I got in to a wreck. The light changed to yellow and I keep going not being too far away from the line. Just after I cross I see a guy in a trail blaser crossing over 2 the lanes. I slam to on the breaks and head to the right to keep from hitting him directly on his broad side. I smashed in the the front corner of his car and from what I was told I spun around and then hit a truck sitting at the light. At the time of entering the inter section I was going 57-58mph.

My car is totaled $17,000 worth of damage, and from what I can tell other than some scrape and bruises I'm OK but I got some x-rays to check out my knees and elbow to make sure that they are not all beat to hell since they are swollen and scraped up from hitting the dash/steering collum.

Being the day after the accident I cant type with my left hand or hold any thing over 5lbs due to swelling and stiffening of the muscles. My torso is swollen by at least 1in all around and all of the muscles are not wanting to do much work.

If I would have not had My seat belt on I would be dead not shot out of the car or thrown around and probably would have snapped my spine. So always wear your seat belt.


Now to the Pics.

A little unclear here. Was it the GP or The Bonne?

Either way good to see you're still here to post with us.

Glad to hear you are doing good and not too badly beaten up.

There'* always the possibility of a Bonne in your future!

very glad u are still here with us. I have learned first hand that the bigger pontiacs (H and W bodies) are very safe cars, and were built to keep its occupants safe in most types of collisions, i had a 99 GTP that i flipped after hitting an 18 wheeler and walked out a scratch, i also had a 94 bonnie that wound up against a pole and again i walked out without a scratch, they are good safe dependable cars, thats why when people ask why i drive em, i am the first to tell them why. Glad you are ok, that is a very scary feeling being whipped around in several directions not knowing when its going to stop! Keep us updated and such as to how you are doing

yes it was the GP the trans mission died on the Bonie last year. I will have the xrays arround 2:00 to just check to make sure I did not mess my knee up.

I am looking to possible get a bonneville if I can get one that has is like a 98 before the last body change

I will be pulling my speakers out of it tomorrow I hope and I should be taking some pics.

FYI, 1999 is the last year before they redesigned the Bonneville. Mine is a 1999

Dayamn. Even with a GP you're one lucky ****. Multiple hit accidents are extremely bad, generally not something you walk away from unassisted. Glad you're still here and relatively unharmed.
Things like this are why I'm a GM guy for life...
