PostPosted: Mon Sep 21, 2009 3:49 pm    Post subject:  Accident ......... SAD day for Impalas Reply with quote











It happened yesterday at 9 in the morning...... The dodge stratus lost control on the freeway and spun towards my car and clipped the rear left side of my car....I was on the exit lane of the freeway and my car spun back to the middle of the freeway and came to a complete stop in the 2 middle lanes.

I looked to the left to see if i was going to get killed from incoming traffic.....Imagine that stopped in the middle lanes helpless.... Luckily everyone behind us braked... I managed to drag my back wheel into the left emergency lane.... the back wheel wasn't rolling so i had to get a tow truck... thank God minor injuries..

Key item as always is you're ok. The damage doesn't look too severe, should be fixable.

Can't tell if your wheel is damaged or it's the axle though from the pics.

From the damage it looks like he was the victim of an unintended PIT maneuver.

IffyG your right on the unintended pit maneuver......... I was on the right of him... And his damame is on his left of his car... So it would be one of the hardest pit maneuver if you want to re-create it....

haha yeah but the stratus hit him with the wrong side of the car for it to be a PIT maneuver Wink


And its good he ran to check on yall. I was riding with my sister in an 89 integra a couple years ago and a neon slammed into us right in my door. He didn't get out of his car and I jumped out to check on him. He cussed us out (even though it was his fault)

Good luck with his insurance and getting your car fixed! I know a few places around here if you need suspension parts. Laughing

Sorry to hear the bad news. Good thing is that you're ok and your Imp can be repaired.
