Last evening I was driving home from the library, and it was pouring rain, but not yet dark. I stopped at a yellow-turning-red traffic light and the car next to me runs it. "You idiot" I think. A couple of seconds later, WHAM! , the biggest, loudest shock I have ever felt. Yep, the car behind me has rear-ended me. It hit me so hard it knocked my Montero Sport 30 ft out into the intersection. Luckily, no one else hit me, cause I was a sitting duck. So I back up a littke bit to ckear traffic, and get out into the pouring rain. The whole rear end is smashed, and the other guys Dodge SUV was crushed in the front. He must have been flying. The ashtray actually got knocked out of my dash, and my driver's side seatback now won't come all the way back up, the spring is probably broken. He get's out and says "The brakes didn't work". Yeah, funny, the brakes on a 2 year old car just stopped working. The guy never even asked if I was alright. And now, this morning, his "insurance company" says they "don't have him in their system". Great. So now probably MY insurance company will have to pay, I'll be out my deductible. The best part is: this is the first new car I have ever owned; all my others were used, and they never got wrecked. So I plonk down 30 grand for a new car, and a year later an idiot trashes it. Well, at least I can still walk.
