    This thread has nothing to do with blackberry...but it's the off-topic lounge so here i go.

    Three weeks ago, my car got totaled because some dumb lady thought that being in the RIGHT lane with her RIGHT flasher on meant that she could turn LEFT without looking in the mirror/dead spot was the right thing to do.

    She hit the back of my car, i lost control, and ended up hitting a light post across the street, my girlfriend ended up at the hospital and she has now lost strength in the right part of her body... not permanently though (THANK GOD). We were five passengers in the car, luckily no one got seriously injured.

    Fortunately, there was a police officer who saw the whole thing, but the stupid lady had the boldness to say that it was my fault, that i was speeding, and all bunch of BS.

    At first, the insurance gave me 75 hundred for the car (it's 13 years old), but i wanted to keep it since i have another s500 (Designo one, for those not accustomed with Mercedes, it's a pricey option that comes with orange/brown leather and great wood grain that matches the leather seats, google it if you're interested) and i wanted to get some "free" parts, so they ended up offering me 7k, plus 1.2k for the rental of a '13 Passat (that both my girlfriend and I hated btw) and i get to keep my now totaled S500. Not a bad deal if you ask me. (payed 5600 in 2011 at an auction)

    Still sad that this W220 won't be cruising the streets anymore, in the 50k+ KMs that i had the chance to drive her, not once did she let me stranded in the streets.

    That was my first accident (I'm 22), and i was so pissed off at that ***** (sorry for my cursing) but how the hell can you have the nerves to hit me, totaling my car in the process, sending my girlfriend to the hospital, saying i'm lying and leave the scene without apologizing.

    Here's a pic of the front, there's more damage at the back (insurance evaluated damages to 12k (frame was bent, so i knew right then that it was done)
    R.I.P to my dear Mercedes S500-img_20140302_063351.jpg

    for detailed damages: hood is bent doesn't close at all, right front door is bent doesn't close properly, xenon front right headlight is destroyed, right front fender is dead, right back LED tail light is broken, right back fender is bent, right back door is hit, front bumper is hit, frame is bent at the front, front right wheel doesn't turn because the fender is sitting on it...

    very sorry to hear about the accident. My last car had two accidents with me in it (lol) and I was glad to swap it with the insurance money. Good luck to you and your girlfriend. Hope everyone continues to make good health progress. Vehicles can be replaced People can't.

    So sorry to hear this. I hope you and your girlfriend recover quickly with no lingering issues.

    Some ***** texting on her phone destroyed my absolutely perfect collector quality W124 last year, so I feel your pain. Believe me, I feel it.

    Excellent idea on keeping the totaled car for parts. Insurance kept the scrap value -- not such a great amount -- and you got a parts car for your other ride.

    By law if the frame is bent they have to total the car because you cannot fix that at a shop. I feel your pain op. I had a great car too but my ex got hit and that got totaled as well due to the frame being bent.
