Collision

I guess this could be Karma from my April Fool's joke last week.

I was struck in the rear passenger area while turning right into a driveway. I was headed for the BMW cca's autoX event. I'll post more info when I get home.


I'm OK, I think. I'll get checked out today if I can.

BMW Assist is pretty cool, btw.

Wow, hope your trip to the doctor goes well. Your poor car got munched, what a bummer. Was it a distracted driver behind you? Seems strange that you could get completely perpindicular and they could hit you on the side like that and not the right rear corner.

Brutal, sorry to see that. Hopefully you are OK.

The damage looks serious with the tweaked wheel and rear quarter. The person that hit you must have been asleep at the wheel.

I'm not sure all the details, but since his DRIVER side front was smashed up, it looks like he turned into me to hit me. His Mazda 6 was pretty much totaled, even had oil leaking out when it was towed away. With such a small car, he had to have been going 35+ to make my car move ~20 feet sideways the way it did. I'll keep this thread updated with the repairs, if applicable...

Yea if your car looks like that I can't even imagine the damage on his car. Im sure that mazda just got shredded. did you take pictures of his car too; Im sure we'd love to see them, and they would be good to show to the insurance too.

Here's a shot of his car. I'm not going to bother covering up his license.

Not as bad as I really thought it was going to be..were you turning left when he hit you? It almost looks like he turned into you?!

That is just one weird looking wreck. If you are turning right then he should have tried to avoid you by jerking the car to the left...which would have taken off your rear bumper and scraped his right side. Or crashed your right rear qtr panel and his left front. Instead it looks like he jerked it to the right, which just made the impact worse for both of you.

Good luck...

The only witness said the guy was driving like a maniac, so, who knows? Perhaps he was drunk.

Damn! So sorry to see this happened petriej. I know you must be upset at this but do remember that these things can be replaced and as long as you are OK, that is the most important thing. Definitely keep us informed on the developments.

The 6er is in the shop! I picked a shop I've used before and I was satisfied with their work. The estimate (from my insurance adjuster) was lower than I expected and Estimated Time to Fix was 30 days. I fully expect the shop to find additional damage, as the adjuster did/could not see all of the damage to the frame/rear end, so in my best guess it will be 6-8 weeks.


Thanks for your kind words!
