    Car Totaled, but I'm ok.

    I've had bad luck since I got my car in December. 3 incidents and I was not even moving.

    1. lady hits my car when it is parked in the street.
    2. My car gets broken into

    and tonight tops it all, stopped at red light, slammed into from behind, and the back of the car is pretty much gone. But I am ok....

    Excellent. The back end of the car took the impact and kept you safe! I am glad when I hear about such damage and so little injury. Everyone always talks about how they "don't make it like they used too" but with old cars you would see a dented bumper and the person in the car would be in the hospital for a week. I am glad the car with bad luck finally gave you good luck by keeping you safe. I am very happy you are ok! Congrats on your health and I with a rear end accident your insurance should not go up. What kind of car was it? Do you think it is totaled? Would you be happier if it was totaled or if it is salvageable? What kind of car?

    Sorry if I sound chipper but I feel this is great to have no injury, Sorry to hear about an accident.

    Thanks guys....

    It was a 2010 Altima. The Police officer thought it was a goner. We will see what happens when the Insurance company takes a look at it.

    And Yes I am fine.

    happend on Sunrise hwy in Lindenhurst.

    Holy Crap, ERIC, I am so bummed to hear it. We got reared last week and thankfully OK though. So it kills me to know your going through the same thing.

    On Sunrise in Lindy, where? Across from where(landmark?) Geez, that is walking distance from my office! What time was this? I was heading home on Sunrise passing by my parents house at 510 PM and it was all clear then.

    Pics of the car? Could you drive home?

    you know, my commuter car right now is the 2000 Altima w/ 91000 miles. It runs great, its smaller than yours but more and more after crap like this, I consider trading it in for a small truck for added protection.

    What did the rear ending Ahole have to say about it.


    Dude, I am enraged!!!!

    Any pics of damage? Is your back alright? SUE the bastards for a bitching back. I LOATHE rear ending imbeciles!!!!!!!!!!!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Glad you're ok Eric. Oh I'd go and sue as well..you never know what will come up in the future with the neck or back. Might as well get some cash from their insurance company.
