yes, on my way to take out the engagement ring to my ex wife.... had not rain for some time. they lived in the country...round the corner...lost it...wrote the car off... lucky I was in the car alone as the passengers side took most of the hit
bruised shoulder, pride was the worst hurt thing...
I wrote off my first car so bad, my dad saw it when he was going to work.
He went straight to the morgue, he was told no one had arrived in that morning.
So he went to the hospital, no one brought in there either .
so he called down to where i worked, i hadn't a scratch on me.
he couldn't believe i got out of it alive, but thankfully i did
Yes. Three times, two of them weather related, all of them in the same type of car, a Ford Taurus (a pair of '92s and a 2004 model). The first crash was from looking away momentarily and realizing that I was about to rear end someone. The other two both came from sliding off a icy or snow covered road. I walked away unharmed from all three wrecks.
One car. Only tick on the driving record. Subaru Justy. Tiny little car. Weighed nothing. It was winter. It was night. It was snowing. I was traveling from Jericho to Underhill in Vermont. The road that leads from one town to the other is literally a 45º downgrade to a 90º bend at the bottom. Yeah. Genius road planning. Anywho-- around midnight. Friend of mine had invited me to a party post work, and I was following. Not doing anywhere near the speed limit, came down the hill. Made the turn, but my car KEPT turning. I found myself in the opposite lane, my car facing the correct direction for that lane, however, I was sliding backwards--- like I was driving in reverse. The car kept edging over to the side of the road, and suddenly, the Justy was flipping end over end (bumper to bumper, not side to side rolling) down the embankment into the river below (which is what the road bent around, surrounding a large corn field) where it finally came to a standstill-- on its roof, tires to the sky.
For the record, as the waters began to pour into the car to fill it, I, on my hands and knees on the ceiling of the car within, had not been wearing a seat belt, and noted that the corner of the roof over the driver's seat had been crushed in. As I scrambled out of the vehicle-- shoving the passenger door open and climbing free-- I realized that if I had been wearing a seat belt, that I would have had my head struck by the collapsed corner, and been held, suspended, upside down, with my head under the ice cold waters. Checking myself over, as I scrambled up the embankment, out of the river, and as my friends turned around and other cars stopped to help, I noted that the only injury to me was a small scratch-- the size of my pinky nail, on my scalp at the top.
Translation: If I had been wearing my seat belt that night, I wouldn't be typing this story today.
Oh, I'm not endorsing NOT to wear a seat belt... I just like to point out that sometimes, NOT having it on can also save your life. What were you driving...? Also, rolling side to side gives you exit points called doors. Bumper to bumper tends to keep you within the vehicle.
Not totally wrecked, but once I had a dent and some scratches. It was the other drivers fault however, I was not to blame. That poor boy only had his drivers licence for a week when he hit my car.
Well, it wasn't my car. Back in the late 60's I was working for Chicken Delight (that dates me). The owner was too cheep to pay for gas money to use our own vehicles for delivery. It was a Yugo. Basically a motorized shoebox. Anyhow. one night I was getting off the freeway, diving the Yugo and looked both ways before pulling out onto the cross street. Suddenly, to my left, this Camero came barrellind down on me at about 60 mph. I floored that Yugo as hard as I could but he hit me, just inches behind the drivers seat. Tore that shoebox clean in half.
no, but I wrecked a golf cart one time...ripped the top half off of it LOL!
LOL thx, it was more like grand theft auto...miami lol!!
Once i borrowed a for the night my shoe stuck on the car mat going around a corner and well the car was wrecked :(
T-boned by a drunk driver running a stop sign.
My car has been wrecked, but I didn't do it. Was hit by a drunk driver... his third offense!
Had a van wrecked for me. Driving home, pickup truck with trailer stopped in the oncoming lane waiting to make a turn. The truck was hit from behind, driven into my van. I went up over the curb trying to avoid it and managed to weave between a tree and an 80-year old neighbor getting her mail and ended up in my own front yard with the side of the van crushed.
Never been in an accident that was my fault - but I was rear-ended by a MAC truck once, that was enjoyable....along with several others that I could have done without. Thanks god for full coverage!
Yes, actually... That's how I met my soon-to-be husband! We've been together for 10 years now.
It was Halloween, and some girl plowed into the side of my car and sent me careening into a really surprised guy in a pickup truck on the other side of the divider, and then onto one of those right-turn dividers. I got out of the car and started running around the intersection, looking for a witness, not realizing that I was dressed in a skin-tight leopard leotard with the ears, collar, leash, tail, claws and matching platform shoes... and that the other girl was dressed as a kitty cat! My husband was one of the people who just happened to be at the intersection (which was packed with people for the obvious hilarious reason) when I was looking for a witness, and he just stuck around until it was all over and my car was towed away. I GOT THE TICKET! (unbelievable), but at least I got a husband out of it! lol
No! It's my baby....
Totally smashed my car. It turned in the air and the passenger door hit the tree. If it was the driver door I would of been dead
