AHH I'm such a dumbass,
first wreck in 3 years(that was my fault, the only one was some 16 year old punk at hs, flying through the parking lot and nailed my contour) It was raining and I was leaving my work parking lot, and looked down at my phone and look up and traffic has stopped, hit my breaks but it was too late, i was only going 20 mph too, my car looks bad like a 40 mph accident. my light busted, my bumper is cracked open my hood is half bent like triangle. Airbags didn't go off sense i wasn't going fast enough or the angle i hit the car in front of me. The only thing that happend to their car(02 camry) was a dent in the corner of the bumper, i could have popp'd it back out myself. It's wierd you wouldn't be able to tell my car hit that car. Oh well atleast no one got hurt, and it didn't even feel like i hit her
but my car sure did crumple

i'll try to take some pics tomorrow to post
[EDIT] HERE ARE THE PICS

That bites


Depends on age, had the same thing happen (well not exactly) but it was my fault and my insurance only went up like $75 every 6 mos. and it was on a Lexus, I sure an SVT falls in a lower category.

Hope everything works out for you.

Your Focus probably got so badly damaged b/c of the crumple zones. Sorry to hear of your wreck.

Lynx, that should all just buff out, right?


InFocus, I hope you (or your insurance company) sued the city, county, and or construction company for having road hazards like that -- unmarked nonetheless. In many locales, you can get reimbursed for any damage caused by road defects (potholes, protruding barriers, mismatched slabs, etc).

Looks like a pretty easy fix. They are never the same though again. I kept pestering my insurance company about things that were still wrong with mine after my accident. They got sick of it and eventually totalled it after they had partially fixed it. (there were a lot of things still wrong though). If they do fix it, i'd recommend 100% to go to a good local bodyshop after to have the work checked over. They'll tell you were corners were cut etc. Sorry about the SVT though...it's sad to see them get hurt
i'm glad the drivers are ok though. I owe my left leg to my old focus. If he hadn't taken the brunt of my impact i'd be wheelchairing around for sure.
