So I go out for some coffee yesterday and as soon as i open my door ---> "CRUNCH" I get hit by another car [:(!] . Turns out this lady was driving way to close to my car and drove right into my door as i opened it. Police report says i'm at fault cause i opened my door with out looking if there were any cars coming! Guess they're right.














This happened around 7:30 p.m. Friday night, but i got done with all the police paper work around 9 or so. Luckely, i have a friend that owns a body shop, he's gonna charge me $ 1,100.00 dollars. I'm getting a new fender and door. Sorry for the picture quality,they're from my cell phone!

There goes my PowerWorks money!!!

yup, it also didn't help that she was driving way to close to my car. We're trying to figure out if we can split the bill.

My car did that wihout needing an external influence such as being hit by another car. (the hinge snapped, door overextended (crunching door and fender). Look on eBay, you should be good as new for under $300. (assuming you do the labor yourself.

yea well, if you can your suppose to put a good amount of distance between a parked car if your driving, and your suppose to slow down.....im sure she saw you, and if she didnt shes at fault too b/c she should be paying attention.

I have to agree with this. She should have been paying attention as well.
