    First of all my humble sympathies to yourself & your friends mom. I hope you both are well or will be soon.

    secondly.........

    A 25mm cannon & possibly a few TV guidance/heatseeker missles as well as 30.cal MG's would be more then enough to keep a car on the road...

    (DAMN ive been playing TWISTED METAL on psp too much)

    Obviously Im just joking but Im just trying to lighten up the mood abit & possibly cheer you up by possibly making you see the funny side of things

    good to hear your okay man, its gonna happen atleast once in somones life when they are driving. This is sort of a lesson to be more careful, but something you cant avoid. The bottom line is that your okay and everyone else is okay, you cannot put any material object infront of your safety. In that case, thats why SUVs are the best, tehy are much safer than cars, gl buddy

    Myth. SUVs give a false sense of security. They are not as stable as cars and tend to roll over. I see a lot of people making that mistake. They also cause major damage to other vehicles in an accident, or in the case of the Hummer, crumple like a tin can. :p

    Hey guys...I woke up pretty fine today although my neck and back hurt but this is usualy for me as I don't have a fully straight backbone :p...and the neck is influenced because of that. I've had this case for 3 years now, although the pain is more than usual my mom says its OK because she had the same case when she had a car accident where her body hurt due to sudden shock and vibration.

    Hmm, Orenda, it was on Hurontario St. and Paisley Blvd (Mississauga)


    Also, if we had been in an SUV the Civic would've been totaled and the person possibly injured, dead or whatever and our car would've probably rolled over.

    Good thing is though, I have a doctors appointment tomorrow for a foot issue so I'll talk to my doctor about this and see if they can check me out for any possible internal injuries.

    Yeah, that Hurontario is a very busy road. I was almost hit once at Burnhamthorp and Mississauga road by somebody cutting the corner. Yet another near miss just down where you were. SUV came flying off the 403 at Mavis and almost rear ended me. :p

    Haha Orenda, that sucks, good nothing happend to you :p...

    Hurontario is a bitch, my mom drives along Confederation since it practically goes along Hurontario and it's trafficless most of the time :p.

    My friend and her parents went to see the car today and she took pictures of the car with her Digital Camera...I will post them as soon as I recieve them!

    Older people that should have turned in their drivers lincense are FAR worse...trust me...

    In Denamrk they are the biggest cause of fatalities now...bigger than the 18-25 year old group

    Terra - And that is scary...

    Fyi: car will be gone, due to the torsen bars being bent, just cos of the fact that the roof is bent means that.

    Anyway I was in a accident like this not long ago, we drive on the other side, and what happened was this lady was going around a round a bout and she put her foot on the gas instead of the brake. We were on a two lane road, and we were in the far lane and there was a road barriar in the way, and she jumped over the barriar, hit us in the front right wheel at about 40mph, pushed us across the lane beside us, and up a drive way that was there, refer to pic to under stand...

    [​IMG]

    Yellow = the lady who hit us ( arrow is direction of her)
    black = us
    Grey = me
    Green = where we went
    Blue = driveway
    and lucky the red = our doctor, rofl

    Yeah i suffered wipplass, and my mom took all the impact, and shes a heart patent so she kinda nearly had another heaart attack when she it us.

    Now what im about to say is racist, but im not trying to be

    The lady that hit us, was 1. an asian 2. she had a bad cold and she couldnt drive properly and 3. she was only on a restricted licence.

    and to make things worse, when i first hoped out of the car, i ran over to check the lady that hit us, and there was some liquid leaking on the ground, and I yelled it out, and then she tried to start her car WTF IS WITH THAT???? so i ran over, her door was jam'd (and im a solid guy, like 6"2, big arms, and such) I so i riped it open, pulled her keys out and chucked them away and she start yelling at me in asian.... wtf?

    Anyway im fine now, and sorry to steal ur simpthoy, just thought i would share my story cos its kinda close to how urs is.

    Also hope ur fine, recover well.

    The damage doesn't look too bad. The car certainly doesn't appear totalled unless there is frame damage.
