Got the pic: *smash*

Finally got the pic off my phone, some may have read my post before, friday before last this damn tree just wouldn't show some common courtesy and move out of my way. Long story short, $7000 damage and a switch to a new insurer who won't rake me over the coals quite so bad.

What they say about driver inattentiveness is true: case and point...



Sorry about the quality, its an old phone. I'm hoping to get the car back late this week or sometime next.

that sucks, but if he punched the tree then he would have his health insurance deductible for a broken hand!

As long as I get the car back without a botched repair job, I'll be happy as a clam, the money doesnt even bother me, but, I miss my damn SVT.

Dang, sorry to hear that. Again... at least you are okay. But think about this: At least it wasn't a telephone pole... cuz if you damaged one of them, you'd be paying for one of those too. First time I heard about that i was like they are . But it has happened. Anyways, again sorry to hear about that, and hope your new insurance company will treat you better.

That's so sad... And so familiar...

My Focus got in a crash a tiny, tiny bit worse that that one (hood was bent up so I could see the valve cover, front bumper was torn off at the fenders, headlights were talking with the middle of my engine, etc) and my airbags didn't even go off. They didn't replace them, either...

Good luck with the new insurance, for sure...
