last rites for a faithful friend (non-cat) (lot's o' pics)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Some of you might have read my earlier post of how I was hit by a drunk driver who then fled the scene. Here are the pictures of our dearly departed little car...

First: the intact car (well, not actually OUR car, but make, model and color are the same)Add a few rust spots in for good measure.

And now the damage:

Man was I lucky to be able to walk away without a scratch!!!

It's really lucky he hit the front of your car and not the door!

OMG! You were so lucky! Thank God that you were not hurt. At least the car is replaceable, you could never be replaced!

Very glad to hear you walked away without a scratch. Really sorry you lost your car.

You were definitely lucky to walk away unhurt. I am sorry about the car though.

Sicycat, yes, they did catch the drunk driver. He'd managed to get his car (which had at least 2 flat tires and smoke coming out of the hood) to a town 20 minutes away before the cops caught up to him. He's facing criminal charges (drunk driving and hit-and-run charges). Luckily, our insurance is covering the rental of a boat... I mean car (bleepin' Dodge Grand Caravan!!!) for a few weeks. And while we have the bus, we're really hitting the car dealerships, looking for reasonably priced hatchbacks (we need to carry a large size crate for the dog) to replace ol' Bessy. (any of you notice the windshield washer fluid tank hanging by the front right tire? I swear it's there by sheer willpower!)

But I guess in perspective, comparing our car to the one behind it in the impound lot, it's not half bad. The other car's hood is GONE. Must have been a serious head-on collision, because the hood is flat and the windshield is smashed something awful.

Holy MOLY! I'm grateful you didn't get hurt! if I just saw the car,I'd ask if the person is still in the hospital. That is horrendous! I'm glad they caught the guy though( and I bet he is in sorry shape now!).

Holy crap!

I was involved in a v-e-r-y minor accident with some weirdo who was under the influence of SOMETHING a few weeks ago. Five minutes later, he hit another lady, who sustained damage about equal to your poor car. Due to many screw-ups, he got charged with NOTHING!

Fast forward to yesterday, when I talked to his insurance company about the status of my claim. She reports that the jackass was involved in an almost identical accident a WEEK ago on the same damn bridge! I hope they fry his behind in hot oil.

Wow, you did get lucky. And I'm glad they caught the guy who did it. Hopefully they can keep him off the road for a while.

Your poor car, it was beautiful at one time! So glad you were one of the lucky ones that walked away unhurt!
