    An old man who wasn't paying attention to where he was going hit me. He even admitted he was looking at a lighthouse decoration in the middle of a fork in the road. Damn us for living on an Island. I was on the main road, and this guy just drove straight into the side of my car.

    I am pissed his insurance company said they might not cover the rental car, although they will cover my cars repairs.

    Thanks guys, I am lucky I am ok too. I saw him at the stop sign, he stopped and then preceeded to go even though my car was there. I tried to swerve out of the way and he hit the gas, I guess out of fear. So it was kind of a slow motion hit, but because he hit the gas at that last moment he bashed me.

    Glad you're ok.

    If they don't pay for your rental I would tell that insurance company that they'll have to pay your salary for the days your car is in the shop because that was your only transportation. That's what I told the person's insurance who rear ended me a few years back when they got snippy about giving me a rental. They had my rental car brought to my house later that day.

    Thanks, and I know it could have been worse. But that's the thing too that really upsets me. That guy could have killed me. An old man in an old station wagon, I can't imagine what would have happen had he been in an SUV.

    Well my brother is a lawyer, he said we could sue the guy for the money for the rental.

    Don't let the insurance company get away with not paying for the rental. A similar thing happened to my mother's car and the insurance company wasn't going to pay, until she bitched them out about it. In the end they paid for the rental.

    You should see my Ford Taurus's Butt.

    The lady claimed her brakes weren't working(right before we saw her Stopping her brand new 2007 honda accord at a Red light).

    I had the same thing happen to me. Call YOUR insurance company and tell them you need a rental and they will fight for you and go after the other insurance company. Any costs that you accrue will be paid by his insurance company even if they have to go to court.

    Oh my god thats terrible!

    yeah my car has had its fair share of abuse as of recently - in January the passenger window and back passenger window (on the left) got busted out and I had to remove my tint (I was so pissed...500 dollars in damage and the insurance didn't cover it) and then my mom backed into it the other day DX
    thank god it was only a few scratches that can be buffed out...

    and now...I have to sell it...I'm going to miss it terribly...

    it was a black 2002 Hyundai XG 350 L with black leather interior, heated seats and its BEAUTIFUL.

    *sniff sniff* I don't wanna let it go...

    Whoa , glad you're alright. He probably did it on purpose to get your number
    .
    Hope it get's fixed soon without too much hassle. Did you tell in insurance he also took your million dollar diamond plated radio? They need to pay you for that too.

    Watch where you're going old maaan
