My Focus = Demolished.

Well I was on my way home from work today, and I stopped at a red light. Out of nowhere this 16 year old kid in his dad's Z71 pickup rear ends me going about 40 MPH. He hit me so hard my stereo flew out of my dashboard and was hanging out by the cords. My foot got knocked off the brakes and I drilled a Lincoln Town Car.

The damage was horrible for me. My hatch was smashed in but amazingly didn't look all that bad. The front of the Z71 was DEMOLISHED and radiator fluid was all over the road. The front of my car was destroyed. Both headlights, the grille, the hood, the fenders, my passenger door, and my foglights were all destroyed (the door snagged the fender when I opened it and it won't close right). My face hit the steering wheel but the airbags didn't deploy somehow.

So it looks like my car is totaled. It was out of the shop for one month.

I'll have pics soon. I wanna die.

UPDATE: Pics of the damage. It looks much worse in person unfortunately. For instance, the tip on my exhaust got broken and shoved all the way to the end of the pipe. The whole exhaust pipe now hangs down and flops, so something is broken.
















At least I wasn't that yellow Focus!

i know what u are feeling man. My car has been in 3 accidents, my most recent is the exact same as yours but instead it was a grown ass women on a cell phone. she hit me, sent me forward and hit a Chevy Cobalt. However the ending is different, my story ends tomorrow when I can pick my car up from the body shop. Well good luck man and it's sad to see a fellow LG brother get his Focus taken away from him maybe. Here was what mine looked like:

And notice how the car that hit me (located behind me) is pretty much totaled just like i guess the truck that hit u. well it's good u are ok, especially since u hit the steering wheel. hope u get back into your Focus or another one soon....btw do u have any pics of your accident?

I'm OK, thanks for asking. I don't think I have any injuries that actually show up on my body, so that's good. I'm sore as hell though.

I still am not sure if it's totaled, but if I had to guess I would say it was.

And damn, xbox4144. That sucks to see, your LG is one of my all-time favorites. My damage is pretty similar to yours but the impact point is more on the right side of the bumper and lower down. So everything got shifted and broken inward facing that point. So everything from the bottom of the windshield to the front of the car is ruined. :(

If it is totaled, I would love to get an SVTF or a new Civic. We'll see, though. Even if I get a ragged old beat-up hoopty I will be happy to have transportation.

Oh, and I have NO IDEA how a copy of the thread ended up in the showroom. I tried to post it multiple times but kept getting errors. So I must have accidentally tried to post it there at one point and it went through.

Ya my damage was pretty much centered....and my accident was over $5k to fix, so if your's is much worse than mine...which it sound like, it's sad to say but ya it probably will be totaled out.
