    Not a good way to end the day!

    On my way home from work yesterday I rear ended someone on the freeway. Thankfully everyone is ok. My suby looks like it was punched in the right eye. Called my insurance company right when i got home and scheduled to drop my car off to a body shop the next day (today). Body shop said it would take about 2+ weeks to fix because they said Subaru parts take a little longer to get. Between both cars seems like i got the worst of the damage. The whole situation sucks but all i can say is thankfully everyone is ok and that they are able to fix my car.


    their damage



    my damage

    i've had it happen like that a couple times. it's because you were probably braking hard and your car dipped (plus it's already lower in the front anyway) and the impact was above the bumper where there is no cushion.

    christ on a bicycle that looks pretty rough. Good luck with the repair - Maybe snap a pic or two if you can so we can see how she turned out?

    All repairable...talked to my insurance agent today. Going to take 2 weeks to fix. Definitely going to take shots of her when she's done.

    Sucks, but it could have been much worse. Glad to hear you're ok.
