So what happened?

Pictures first!

Full details still in the working, but in a nutshell:

  • I'm in the fast lane, and see this car ZOOMING IN from behind in the rearview mirror.

  • I start getting out of her way by shifting to the right lane.

  • It turns out she was WAY faster than I thought and she tried to fishtail me on my right without even slowing down.

  • So we end up in the same lane again and BAM, she hits me from behind in the right corner of my bumper.

  • The right wheels seem to have lost their friction, and the car starts to turn counterclockwise, then after making a bit more than a half turn, it starts to move backwards because of inertia.

  • I slam on the brake, and it starts to slow down, but not until the same right corner of the rear bumper butts into the center divider.

Yes, considering the impact, my car survived with minimal damage inflicted upon it.



I'm glad you made it! the damage really does look minimal from that kind of impact... saturn huh? But I guess the real damage is in the frame huh?
Aw... Poor saturn....
I hope your body feels ok. If you get sore look for some arnica, ir can help reduse muscle inflamation.

Thank goodness, the frame wasn't damaged significantly; the only thing that got bent was a small, structurally insignificant metal flange.  x_x
