I was waiting to post this until everything with the insurance company was wrapped up. I didn't even have to send the video in, the statements and damage alone were enough for them to accept 100% fault on the other guy's policy. About $11,000 in damage to my car, and I'll probably have to replace my rear ALP heads. But no injuries, and no deductible for me so there's that. The rental company gave me a brand-new Ram 1500. It's no Mustang, but at least it's not a Prius...


Freaking I-205, amirite @spongebobradarpants ?

Wow definitely a frightening situation. My family and I were rear ended back in my early teens on the highway. To this day (20 years later), every time I have to hit the brakes hard, I’m waiting for that impact all over again. Glad you’re ok and everything worked out in your favor as it should!

Glad everyone was OK. What was that on the road? Scrap from an old fence?

Aww dude I'm sorry. Looks like it wasn't too bad, but that still sucks. I'm glad you're okay!

So sorry to hear, that sucks! I'm glad you're ok. I would hate to rename my "FoxStang" favorites list to "FoxStang Memorial”. As a bonus, my phone remembers FoxStang when I try to type it in. You've been a huge inspiration and I hope you're up and running again shortly.

Some policies have small amounts payable for aftermarket additions permanently installed. Mine covers up to 1K for this kind of thing. Covered my paint protection film when I clobbered a deer..

Yep. I get flashbacks when I am stuck in stopped traffic on the interstate. My 2012 was totaled when I was rear ended while stopped in traffic on the interstate. Some teenager was busty texting and going about 40 MPH and was clueless about the stopped traffic.

Hopefully you will be up and running soon @FoxStang . You did better than I did with the rental. I got stuck with a Civic. It was OK until I turned on the AC then zero acceleration lol.

Yeah and that “LOL” they were texting probably wasn’t so funny after that

You are lucky that they are paying without playing games.
The new practice insurance companies do is deny all claims forcing you to sue the driver in court before they will pay out. They know many people will just give up from frustration.

Thanks Vortex! As usual, most of the damage is hidden beneath. Luckily it wasn't enough to total the car.

It was about a 6' ladder, didn't see which vehicle it fell from

So sorry to hear, that sucks! I'm glad you're ok. I would hate to rename my "FoxStang" favorites list to "FoxStang Memorial”. As a bonus, my phone remembers FoxStang when I try to type it in. You've been a huge inspiration and I hope you're up and running again shortly.
Haha, I'm honored. Hopefully I'm still around here even when I'm so old and decrepit that they take my license away!
