Got Hit by Drunk Driver - April 24, 2010, 10:51 AM

Got nailed by a drunk driver last night on 7 Westbound & WestPark. Right at Tysons Corner.

About 10 pm, my friend and I were approaching a red light - maybe rolling about 5 MPH.
Driver in a Toyota Camry basically drove full speed directly into us!

There was so much force that my car slid forward, ABS kicked in, and definitely locked my brakes for a small time. Luckily I was able to keep the car straight and stopped before hitting the car in front of me.

My buddy called the cops while I went to see if the other driver was OK. She did nothing but curse at me and I immediately noticed something was off.

Cops came, immediately picked up on the possible alcohol and ran a field test. Arrested her, towed her car, and that was that

My entire rear / trunk is shifted forward 1 -2 inches. Truck,exhaust, and rear bumper are all reallly messed up

Here's a pic after we forced the bumper back onto the car:


Luckily, I was in my G35 and not on the bike!

Lesson:
I almost always watch the rear view but wasn't doin that tonight
Yapping with my friend I think ...

Yeah Im worried there's frame damage. If you look in the trunk its shiftd at least 1-2 inches forward. And the both exhausts are bent. Sounds like a busted exhaust.

Honestly, I'm not sure she's even gonna remeber what happened. She was completely out of it.

Let me remind you of something. Now that your car has been damaged it will be on the carfax history thats 20% off the value.
Basically, she just bought your car, sue the shit out of her otherwise you lose.

He means, tell your insurance that your back and neck hurt so they pay you for that. That also means doctor appointments, physical therapy etc.

Glad you both are ok, wish I could have heard what she was bitching about.

But please don't, because it's insurance fraud, and things like this raise premiums for everybody.

If you're really hurt, by all means, that's what it's there for.

Faking it to get more money though isn't digging more out of her, it's digging your whole community.

Dude, my respect for you went up by 45%.

Not that it was low. Just appreciate thinkers like you.

That's not much damage for a full speed impact.

Glad to hear you're safe. Hopefully she has insurance! A lot of people are rolling without because of the recession.

Thx man. Its hard to tell from the pic, but there is alot of damage behind the bumper. I think things are crunched a few inches into the trunk ...

She does have INS, no clue what kind of coverage etc tho.
