Angry My first accident, minor carniage inside

Well I was on my way home from movies with my wife and was sitting at a red light ONE BLOCK FROM MY HOUSE and I hear crunch grind POP as a car comes in-between my car and the car next to me and pops off my mirror. The car comes to a rest as the guy in front of me attempts to peal off to avoid the accident, he didn't. I turn off the car and jump out and ask the woman in the car if she is all right (turns out she is 81 years old ) She's fine, the person in the car in front of me is fine, the couple in the BRAND NEW infinity are fine and the old ladies in the car in the middle of all of us are fine.
Yea that's right the cops had SO MUCH fun with a 4 vehicle accident, according to the 81 year old woman she "missed" the brake and hit the accelerator and SPLIT the lanes and ground past us. Luckily she only hit my mirror and bumper but it STILL pisses me off... any way on to the pics....

















Popped right off, and it's a week to Texas round up too! At least it was after Import reactor, pretty sure judges take points off if it's damaged.

Sorry to hear that this happened close to a meet. but you got lucky, there is not near as much damage as there could have been if the other car leaned on your car the whole way by.

Yeah I know I got lucky but, it's my first. 26 years old with a ticketless and accidentless record, now I can't even back into my garage. :p

I sure hope the raisin has good insurance and a fast body shop. Sounds like it is definitely time for Her to give up the DL if She "missed" the big brake pedal and somehow hit the tiny little gas pedal. Just saying. Oh, Carfreak, You are being far too generous with the 5 years thing, IMO. It should be every year over 70.
