so i was driving down rt2 in warwick ri heading towards my house and i was in the left lane doing about 45 and all of a sudden i hear a massive bang and next thing i know i am spun around saying wtf.... some guy in a rental dodge challenger wasnt paying attention and just plowed in to me.... cops came both cars were towed away spent a few hours in hospital getting checked out but everything is ok but the car.... when it was going up on the flat bed the guy was point out how the trunk was puched in towards the wheelwell and now that door dosent line up so he says prob going to be a total loss...

from the damage i saw if it was fixed would be a new bumper... new tails... and a new trunk but the other guy thought the worse...

ouch sorry to see that. yeah you have frame damage for sure. hopefully not totalled but that's for your insurance to decide.

The other driver should be burned at the stake for wrecking your car and a Dodge Challenger all in one swipe.

Glad you're ok and hope you can get you car back.

This happened to me once with far less damage then you have got. I got a attorney and in 2 years I received a $350,000 check!. If I were you I would stop talking to your insurance company and have a chat with a attorney!. Contrary to what insurance companies want you to believe they DONT have your best interest in mind!. (Just a suggestion)

Balders- hard to tell from the pics since it was dark but something tells me they will not total it due to that damage. i am currently doing repairs on a eary 2000s honda accord with almost identical hit on the other quarter. definetly salvageable it just depends more or less on the estimate your given at the body shop and what the insurance adjuster decides

If the car is at the point where you can total it out, or repair it, do the toal. Cars that bad, with repairs are NEVER the same.
Better to just let it go, than repair it and have tone of endless issues.
Just my friends experience.

boy that sucks.. That shouldn't total your car. Like stated above, you will have frame damage. That challenger got the best of it tho. Good thing your okay.

Sad to say but seeing this pic, you should hope it is totaled. Cars are never the same after major surgery like that.

There seems to be a quite a bit of damage to the frame. You're not going to want that car back. She won't be the same.
