Default Stupid winter Drivers

So this is what happens when people forget how to drive in the winter. Got bumped from behind and slid into car in front of me and then slid down into a ditch. oh yeah and the driver that originally ran into me fled the scene.

Fortunately Insurance approved it for repairs. Wasn't sure if they would. I paid 4,000 for the car and the preliminary estimate of just the outter damage was already up to 2,500. so i was sure they would total her. but they decided not to. we'll see how it all works out. already found an 02 gtp that looks promising if this all doesnt pan out.

Ouch. Hope the clown that hit you took a lot of damage. This is why I like a truck with a big hitch sticking out nice and far. Go on, hit me and try to leave with that huge hole in the radiator.

Oddest thing. The only damge i took in the back was an outline of this guys vanity plate stamped right there to the left of my license plate. I barely saw it when i got her to the shop. so i doubt that tools ride has any damge whatsoever.

Any chance you can make out the license number from the imprint. Now that would be funny as heck.

Ughhh! I hate when something like this happens.. i had a guy hit me while at a stop sign and he tried to run so i called the cops and chased him. He wouldnt stop so i pit maneuvered him and spun him into a ditch. Cops arrived and congratulated me. He was drunk.

LOL!! thats awesome. I think i wooulda done the same had it not been for the whole "me sliding down a 7 ft ditch" part of the story. I didnt even realize i had been hit until i climbed back up to the street and a guy at the gas station across the street filled me in.
