He got cut off by someone in an escalade, he swerved, and then spun into the curb.

Same **** happened to me, some jerkoff in a big truck didn't even look.

I learned my lesson. Next time, let him hit me.

Needs more F1-style wheel tethers!

I hate when that happens, it's the reason I upgraded my horn too.

Jesus, what kind of wheels are those? It sheared the axle and broke a chunk out of the rotor, but the studs and wheel didn't fail? :O

Heres the story

______________________________________________
______________________________________________
______________________________________________ escallade
<- northbound
-----------------------------point of impact-----\ me\
-------------------------------------------------\ \
southbound ->
______________________________________________

On my way to work, I turned across an intersection to head north bound. As I was in the middle of the north and southbound lanes, the lane for me to turn north bound closet to the median was open with nothing more than a cadillac escalade in the middle lane heading straight. As I went to turn and my car was 3 quarters of the way into the lane, the person in the escallade decided to go into the lane i was starting to turn into, basically comming head on into the passenger side of my car at at least 60 mph. In order not to get myself killed, as the idot was about no more then 2 ft from my car, i hit the gas to basically slide the car in tandem with the angle of his car as he was passing.

That worked...for the *******. I ended up at the last second having to choose weather to let off the gas and steering wheel and hit the front of the car or keep on the gas and spin the car to hit the rear passenger side to keep myself, and the front end (more expensive to fix) safe. I chose the latter and this is what you see. My wheels are the **** btw. Anything lesser wheels would have been shattered.
