Unhappy No more miata!!

Yesterday at about 2am in the morning, as I was heading home my 91 was killed [totalled]. Some ******* in an Explorer had just left the casino after watching a fight, took a RED light onto my Miata. I have to say I was extremely lucky as the Explorer was less than a foot away from T-boning ME!. All I saw was bright lights and BOOM!!! the car looked like a beer can at a frat party. As I was still in the car and I saw the driver of the Explorer outside looking at my car. He grab his head, and RAN AWAY, yes the ************ took off on foot . A little after the Fire Rescue showed up and took me to the hospital. At the end of the night I learned that the driver that ran away IS the owner of the car that hit me, however the tag on the car at the time of the accident IS NOT the one that belongs to that particular vehicle. The driver was extremely intoxicated, as his girlfriend when she showed up at the scene describing that he had gotten home yelling that he had crashed. There's a high possibility that the Explorer doesnt have any type of insurance. In other words Im fucked and I have to go after this idiot in a civil case to cover my losses and medical bills, as I only have the PIP required by law.

Well I can say that I was lucky as Im still here, but is sad to see my car go like that when I was weeks short of finishing my project.

I know like I said lucky for me the car took most of the hit not me. However Im left upside down, specially when is unsure whether the other driver had insurance or not. Meaning I might end up with large bills and a lengthy litigation for damages.

I'm sorry dude. I nearly got hit in my Miata on Friday...most of my parts are in my office and not on the car, so it'd make starting over easier, but I was in that split second dreading looking for another car.

Glad you're safe, get through this and then figure out how to continue your next project.

Buffon check your policy most have underinsured and uninsured coverage percisely for that reason. Mine only costs like 50 bucks and does 20k50k i believe. Its a pretty standard option most people gloss over.

Glad to hear you're ok. Really sucks about the car though. I recently looked at a 93 over here in Naples. She wanted $1500 for it if you're interested.

KY is a no fault state as well and this is as i said a pretty standard rider. Considering you didnt waive the pip, etc i bet you have it check your policy.
