    Yesterday, I got into the worst car wreck of my life. Some dumbass tried to beat a red light yesterday. I was already in the intersection making a left turn on a yellow, she hesitated and then gunned it. BOOM!

    The cops ended up citing me, believing that the dumb bitch had been going the speed limit, which she of course lied about. Too bad for her that I:

    A. Have an eyewitness that will testify that she sped up to beat the light (too bad he didn't stick around to talk to the cops),

    and B. A very nice woman, Cowhat Ninja from here, was in the area and was nice enough to take pictures of the wreck. (I didn't realize it was her until after she gave me her email address hehe)

    So now I have a fractured ankle and taking percoset for pain. I will be stuck in this cast for 2 months, with the ability to put NO WEIGHT whatsoever on my right foot. I can't drive for 2 months, and on top of it, I am both a music and PE elementary teacher. Teaching both will be rediculous in this fashion, especially PE. Teaching PE in fucking crutches. Not to mention now I need rides for work, or anywhere I need/want to go. My car was destroyed, I don't honestly see my insurance company calling it anything but "totaled." Oh, and having to shop for a new car again. Again, in TWO FUCKING MONTHS.

    I am very frustrated with this. I am pissed that the officers decided to go with the crying little girl who hit me, instead of listen to me. The cop was younger than I am, so maybe he has no fucking clue, who knows? I am going to have to fight this on two fronts, with my insurance company (State Farm) and the court for the citation. I am thinking a lawyer is in order, and I already have one who I talked to yesterday after this whole ordeal.

    When I get the pictures from Cowhat Ninja, I will post a few for you to gawk at. Alternatively, she could post a few as well. Thanks again Tanya, you've been a great help. :) 

    edit: one too many a's in the thread title, mod help please? Percocet was working I guess.

    She's definitely the one at fault. Hopefully you can get ahold of the guy who saw the accident.

    Looks like one Mustang was jealous of the other. I would have to agree that they will say its totaled. The Frame has got to be in nasty shape let alone how much it would cost to even make it drivable now, and it still would never feel the same. How much did you slide, cause that 2nd image makes it look kinda strange with the way the damage is to both cars.

    Ouch. Sue her ass. Course, from the car she drives, she probably doesn't have anything.

    Damn, that's a really bad wreck. Be thankful you weren't hurt worse, or killed.

    Sorry to hear about what happened. From the sound of it, it's TOTALLY her fault and hopefully you can get everything straighted out in court.

    On the brightside, you're both alive :)

    As a fellow survival of car-totaling, I can only echo the sentiments that you're lucky to have come out alive.


    Find her, take her to court and hammer them with facts while praying things go well.

    Okay, I'm still trying to figure out what you say happened. You were turning left, and which way was the red car coming? Did you turn in front of her? By the damage on the cars, I can't really tell what happened. Just glad to hear you're okay.

    He ya turned in front of her.

    He probly thought she was going to stop.

    I think the law is you need to yield to people when going left.

    I don't think you have a case. She might be able to sue you.

    Although...what the hell did you get a ticket for? Not yielding? You said you just got a "citation"....

    What are the odds....two mustangs haha......

    lucky you got a witness.....

    I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to try to beat a red light

    she'll say it was yellow too....

    then the law will say you must yield to oncoming traffic.

    I wait for that damn thing to turn blood red, and then flip off the drivers at my left.

    But ya I hear ya, in the intersection already.....

    I love those fartknockers who put in reverse and dont go.....
