Sorry about your car but glad you made it ok.
This happened the other day, getting close to intersection with 2 cars already stopped in left lane and light turned green, I continued to slow waiting for a red light runner as opposed to flooring it. Well first left lane car went and was immediately nailed and I had plenty of time to stop. Bullet dodged!

will for your car.

Glad you are ok and I wouldn't want that car back after that anyway.

Hope you are treated fairly for your loss, welcome to the forum.

Agreed. That tire looks a little thin in the skin.

Damn accidents blow no matter who's at fault but glad you are ok. As hard as it is to swallow I'd be happy they totalled your car so you can just start fresh. Btw SoCal has the worse drivers in this country.

A car can always be replaced, man.. It sucks, but what's important is that you are ok..

On a less important not than your life, please tell me that he was insured...

Damn bro, sorry that happened to you. Getting tired of seeing people run stop signs and causing accidents such as yours. I wasn't aware that a brief complete stop can kill you nowadays -_-

Terrible about what happened to your car. Just to echo what has already been said - glad you're okay!

Had a close call Monday when someone cut right out in front of me and then slammed on the brakes. People are idiots.

I won't ask which vehicle was yours...

I, myself totaled my camaro a few months back and since then I have seen numerous threads of people crashing their cars. It just amazes me how safe these camaros are. People dont seem to realize that. I have yet (thank god) to see someone post a picture and say they were badly injured. The air bags all over this car are perfectly placed and hats off to GM for building these beast. I mean I was hit on the freeway in the fast lane, spun completely across the freeway, hit a curb doing god knows how fast and walked away from my car like nothing (dont tell the lawyers and physical therapist that tho). Glad to see your safe and your car is replaceable. Now just do like me and patiently wait for the 2014 :-)

Ouch! Glad you're okay. Man... that Camaro folded like a cheap suit. How fast were you going? Did the front of his truck hit you or was it just you hitting his side?
