One - I was rear-ended once in a snowstorm.

Oh wait - I did graze a moose once. No damage to car or moose. Does that count?

I'm sorry, but that just made me laugh!

1. While waiting in a turn lane to get onto the road, a 60 year old man came careening up the turn lane (illegal) and hit me head on. I was sitting still. Tore up the front of my 300ZX. I was 21 yrs old & hysterical. Not hurt, but scared because I knew my then-husband would get mad that "I" wrecked the car.

2. While coming to a stoplight, slowing down, the lady in a minivan next to me "didn't see me" and got over, right into my passenger side. She said she was sorry and I got myself a new fender & door.

3. Slid on some ice, all by my onesies, outta control, into a concrete barrier... oops... major owwie to my head & broke the wheel off the car when I hit the concrete.

4. Got rear-ended on the way home from work. The roads were wet so that means, everyone forgets how to use their brakes. Got the car painted & repaired for free.

So, 4 wrecks, and only 1 was my fault. Not too shabby!

I don't really consider myself having any accidents because I didn't report them, but technically I'd say 2.

(1) I was either 16 or 17, cut class to go shopping an hour away in my moms car with my old hs bf. I attempted to back into a parking space next to a giant cement wall, and cut it wayy too close and took off the passenger side mirror, part of the door, etc, before i realized what that awful noise was.. lol. I drove around like that for about a year then paid out of pocket to get it fixed.

(2) I was driving down a hill in the snow and skidded into a ditch. Only damage was to my rim and tire. I got a new rim the next day and it was fine.

I put 3 but it depends on the accident definition.
In 1988 DH & I were coming back home after grocery shopping and a full size ford van pulled out in front of us. As we didn't want to swerve as we didn't know if anyone was in the other lane we braced for impact as we were going 55 mph and hit the van at about 35 mph. We had a Merc Sable and we spun the van around. Our front end was smashed (7K damages back then) No injuries except bruises and general soreness. The driver of the van admitted he was at fault as he turned his head to the back of the van while pulling out!! The groceries were in the trunk and kind of smashed up!!
I had a lady hit me at the mall (same car) and 2 people have rear ended me.
No damage on one and the other I was stopped in the explorer and a guy bashed into me-he had lots of damage -the explorer they replaced a $70 part to be safe and I had 6 weeks PT for my neck. I went in the ditch twice in the winter with an explorer too-black ice and the other was a person lost control of his truck so I took the ditch to avoid hitting him!!

I forgot I took out our mailbox last spring with the truck-turned to short into the driveway!!

I've only been in one car accident, and I wasn't even in the car at the time, so I don't think it counts! Someone hit my car while it was parked at Walgreens, and my Corgi Solomon was in the front seat. He was terrified. When I came back he gave me this look that seemed to say "THIS IS YOUR FAULT FOR LEAVING ME ALONE IN HERE!!!" poor baby.
They never caught the person who hit my car, even though there were several witnesses. Luckily no one was hurt.

I've only ever had one. Although I'm not too sure if this counts.

It was about two months ago and my friend Steph came over and picked my friend Catherine and I up and we decided to go to the supermarket. She had only ever driven a manual car three or four times. We told her to park in an isolated place so she wouldn't have to worry about bumping into any other cars, so what does she do! she goes to park right between the two flashest cars in the car park and she looses controls of the wheel and drives right into one. Idiot.

My other accident happend when I was with my fiance in the Civic, we were in the parking lot of a Fiesta store and we had come to a complete stop because we saw this camaro hauling ass towards us.

We were at a dead stop, she hit us, 16yr old girl no insurance, driving daddy's car, tore the front bumper off, bent the core support, and broke BOTh of our headlights...and WHAT did it do to her car? A small little crack!

We called the cops, her whole family came out, trying to get us to let them take the car to their shop, the cop finally got there, and wrote her a ticket...hahahaha

I've had 1 when I just got my license at age 16. Someone rear ended me while I was at a stoplight.

I drive a rolling red target too. I have had 4 accidents. My first accident i was 16 and had my liscense for a whole week and rear ended a woman at a stop sign( i was going like 4 mph or less almost stooped) no damage but she did try to go to the hospital(the next day) and say she had whiplash. She was a B****!

All the rest were in parking lots. 2 where i used to work and one at the college when i was backed into a spot and the girl tried to pull in next to me, stopped seeing she wasnt goign to make it, then continues to go and smashes the right front of my car!

Oh wow, I would NOT have done that!!

Okay, I said one in the poll....but thats only the one where it was my fault. I had stayed out past curfew when I was supposed to be at my friends house back in high school. I was on my way back to her house with a friend, about 3:30 in the morning and fell asleep. Flipped the car into a creek and totalled it. But SO LUCKY to walk away with only scratches. Needless to say, the cops wouldn't believe me when I said I had not been drinking until they saw the blood test at the hospital.
But there was another when I was in middle school. My mom was taking me, sis, and my friend to school when someone ran head-on into us IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD! He had dropped his cigarrette and bent over to pick it up, the idiot! The other was in middle school also, riding with a friends sister. Someone t-boned us b/c they couldnt see around a median (from long grass). Luckily I've never been seriously injured.
Oh yeah, rear ended once on the interstate when traffic was really backed up, but all it did was take off a tiny bit of paint. I actually still haven't got it fixed cause you can barely see it.

None as a driver, three as a passenger.
The last one was a rear end hit and run back in 96, whiplash has my back pretty messed up now.
I'm also one of the worst passengers now as a result as well.

I've only had one. But that one was about three weeks after I got my first car (at 20 ). I was trying to pull on to a 2 lane one way and looked around but didn't see the BROWN car that blended in with the trees.

I smashed their rear driver's side door in pretty good, but I only got a broken blinker light and a scratched bumper... (which is impressive for a geo). I felt really bad though....

Other than that, I had this weird premonition that I would die at 22 in a car accident and maybe it's my imagination but I swear I've avoided like 20 accidents this year. Lots of people don't look before they pull out into the road. *sigh*

This really isnt an accident, but damn, I had a rough morning...

First off I had a cop follow me about 3 miles (I drive a '92 Acura Integra (standard)) As soon as i pulled into the parking lot, he turned around, *******!

Well then I was on the freeway and I heard this loud pop, my fiance is like :censor::censor::censor: was that we didn't see anything on the freeway, I heard a noise and pulled over. I fkn had a flat tire, I was so thankful it was the back tire cuz I was doin 75...and man the crazy part is, I was just sayin this past monday, I've never had a tire blow out on me..

Damnit

I've been in two accidents involving other MOVING vehicles, neither of which were my fault.
I also, uh, backed into a tree and into a parked car...
