wrecking sucks!

Ok, I just got into my 1st wreck & it sucked! (ha, like it would be a good experience) I was turning onto a road off an intersection & this guy in a dodge stratus pulls right out in front of me. luckily i was only going like 15mph. but, the impact was so hard (or he had his bumper on with zip ties) that his bumper flew completely off. not only that, one of his belts was lying on the ground. my focus got one little scratch on the bumper & that was IT. luckily no one was hurt but damn am i glad i have such a tank! go focus go!!

Define 'wreck'

I've been rear-ended once by a hit-and-run, and the damage was only to the rear bumper.

Wreck #1 - Rolled a Chevy Venture...I blacked out after the accident, I still don't know for sure the cause. What was assumed was that I went off the road around a curve and overcorrected.

Wreck #2 - I blame this on driving handbooks. Lol. I was in my moms new mini van, an Oldsmobile Silhouette, the one she got after I totaled the venture. I was behind a Ford Explorer doing about 55 mph. We were coming into town so I had already let off the gas. And I was 5 car lengths behind her. I remember that because a friend was with me and we were actually discussing the 1 car length per 10 mph rule of thumb. Coincedence? Maybe. Anyway, the woman in the Expo SLAMS on her brakes. Well let's just say I found out the in least pleasant way that Ford Explorers can slow down ALOT faster than a mini-van. I sideswiped her and hit a Ford Ranger waiting at the intersection. I got a ticket for "Not stopping soon enough to prevent an accident. The kicker: The Ford Ranger shouldn't have been there, he was an uninsured driver. The lady in the Expo never used a turn signal and I had a witness. $6000 worth of damage and most of it was caused by hitting the truck, which was totaled.
