Another Accident!

Got in another accident Tuesday going to work. Pictures later. Spun out going 15-20 mph in a snowstorm and hit the guardrail in a left curve. $2000 worth. This is my second accident in two years after none since 1974.

Grrr!

Scary shit when it happens. $2K sounds like you only experienced minor damage.

Yeah the all season tires really let me down the car just went out of control on a curve.

So sorry to hear about this. I hope you feel better soon. I agree with Wee Yari, 2k isn't too bad. Shouldn't take more than a week to fix. My recent rear-ender cost the other person's insurance company about $1100 plus the rental. Years ago, when my best friend's parents moved from California to New Jersey, the same thing happened to his little sister on a curve....right after she got her license. Scary stuff when it happens to even an experienced driver like you. She was driving their new VW wagon..... She was okay, but she hit a tree, and the VW was totaled. No rental coverage on your policy to aid with your round trip to work and back?

^^^^^ We are on the same page. I read 'all season tires' and thought....those aren't snow tires.

To encourage you to chuckle a bit to help distract you from the discomfort....I hope the dented rim (previous thread) was already off the car before the accident .

Got home OK but hardly remember it. Here is a picture. Advil seems to help as does some four year old lidocaine patches. The dented rim I did a week ago!
