Yaris Crashed!

Well guys I guess I get no love for my yaris, I posted before about my Yaris being keyed. Well yesterday while I was getting out of school in the student parking lot some bitch wasnt looking while she was reversing and hit my car while i was honking and screaming hoping she would stop. She hit the quarterpanel which is the piece of metal above the front-driver side tire. Its pretty bad but will get fixed I will get pics up this afternoon when i get out of school. So far my yaris has not brought me any joy

-1 week of having my Yaris it gets keyed
-1st speeding ticket ever recieved with my yaris
-1st crash ever with the yaris (not my fault)

Man, I am so sorry to hear that. What is going on with all the Yaris babies getting crunched up this week? I had a Miata that got backed into four times in parking lots because it was too low for the SUVs to see. Nothing is worse than getting a new car banged up like that. Does she have insurance?

Holy cow! All these wrecks… maybe the sheet metal they are using
to make the Yaris is magnetic. It seems to draw cars toward it.

All these accidents are making me scared. I think till things calm down I'm gonna park away from everyone else, and be super careful while moving.

Sorry to learn about the incidents!
My Yaris has some stone chips on it. Fortunately a few are on the front bumper which I presume is plastic, so rusting should not be an issue. There is, however, one chip on the driver side door caused by a piece of sharp stone kicked up by a big truck. At the moment I saw/heard the object hit my door, I felt very sad and helpless. I encounter many big trucks on the highway these days. I have been seeing them kicking things up, especially on dry days. I have covered up the chip with a touch up pen from a friend. The color does not match well but rusting will be prevented.
BTW, I would appreciate it if regulus would report later if the dent removal kit mentioned in his preceding post works fine.
