CRUNCH!!
Thursday, March 02, 2006 2:10 PM
This is an update of my other post but this will be better...

Last Thursday (2/23/06) I was attepting to take a left on a really busy four lane road. I guy who was pulling into the parking lot, stopped and waved me out. I then proceeded to turn left when I saw a truck coming at me in the corner of my eye. I stop and a couple of seconds later, I was slammed. The guy who waved me through drove off to avoid the ticket and the girl that hit me was clueless on how to handle the situation. We pulled into the a lot across the street, waited for the cop. Good thing was, I wasn't cited.







Bent my strut. $3021.88 worth of damage. Shop says a week to fix it but I wouldn't be surprised if it takes a month.

I'm surprised you weren't given a ticket. The law looks at it as they don't care how waived you where your still the one driveing so its your responcibility to make sure the road is clear. That said I'm glad to hear you didn't get hurt.




Semper Fi SAINT. May you rest in peace.

I'm also surprised that you weren't the one ticketed. I had the exact same thing happen to me a few years back, and I was cited with "failure to yield to oncoming traffic". It doesn't matter if someone stops to motion you out, in the end, you're responsible for making sure that there's nothing coming before you pull out. You got lucky with your damage though, my Z24 was totalled because for the most part the entire front end was totally ripped off. The woman who hit me was driving a Neon and she was going about 50 mph. Glad you're ok though.

I dont know what the laws are where you live but up here in NY its not that way. When we go through drivers ED, our 5 hour corse as well as my driving school for verizon we told to never ever wave someone through because if they get into an accident its your fault for giving them the all clear.

A bulk of the expence came from the frame shop. The girl hit me in the right spot. Bent my frame and my left strut, not to mention body work. My bumper is still crooked.
