It was one of those "pick the lesser of two evils" things. I was waiting to turn left somewhere (so was stopped. Get plastered head-on by the drunken fool and have the car totaled, or get the hell out of the way and get hit on the rear/side and risk spinning. I took the lesser blow, and thankfully stopped a spin. Unfortunately, because I didn't sit like a man and take it, I got cited for failure to yield on a left turn Nobody hurt though...and no airbags deployed or anything like that. Course the other guy got to drive away from the scene. Doesn't that figure?

Car has some rear suspension damage (passenger rear wheel is all out of whack...had to be towed to the body shop), as well as quarterpanel and rear bumper, along with other, more minor pieces. I'm praying no frame damage. I'm still waiting to hear from the insurance adjuster, who might be out of town until Tuesday (wtf?) so work won't begin on my car 'till Wed. Means driving up to STL for the wedding is probably out of the question right now. Still working out tweaked logistics.

So much for defensive driving skills being supported by the police, *******.
Hope they can get you back up and going soon, insurance work sucks when they take forever with the insurance.

Yeah...lose lose situation. I don't think I have a prayer of having it done by next Friday, which is when I'm supposed to drive up to St. Louis to get married. We'll see what happens.

Insurance should cover a rental for you. One of em, Enterprise I think, doesn't care about miles. Rent a Corolla or something, and get 45 mpg.

I wish. Apparently, I never clicked the box for rental reimbursement coverage.
