so im going from 14th street onto glenmore heading westbound to crowchild when this white car infrount darts out of the way nearly missing this explorer that is STOPPED DEAD in its tracks, i did not notice this as the car infrount was larger then me. Anyway i Slam on my breaks and come within 2 meaters of the explorer, i was stopped for 1 second when i heard a huge screeeeech and then a BANG!!! my prelude was sent flying into the Explorer, my frount is find i did not hit him that hard but my back right side is fucked!!!! im going to need a new trunk,back bumper, right quarter panel, tail lights the whole works, my baby is fucked thanks to this ass in a jeep flying at me. i hope i can get my car fixed, and i hope he has insuracne because when i checked the police collision report it had no stated insurance :guns: :guns:

That area is brutal for those type of sandwich accidents. When I went to the U I'd see on like that once a week.

It would be if there was damage to the explorer. As long as the explorer's driver doesn't place a claim (i'm assuming that mr touchdown isn't claiming anything for damage to the front of his car), then its the last driver (the jeep) who gets all 100% of the fault(unless another car hit him).

I highly doubt this is because its a Jeep, I would wager that if it were any other vehicle, the situation would be the same. I think its probably more of the classic problem in Calgary where people follow way too closely.

Good to hear that there wasn't any damage between you and explorer, this should mean you get to place a 100% NAF claim. Even better is that no one was hurt. GL

umm ya good luck with the jeep and all. umm ya hope it does not cost to much. i can't afford insurance.

I'm pretty sure he would have to pay for the damage to the explorer that he hit and to fix the damage on the front of his car. Reason? They're gonna tell you that you didn't leave an adequate distance between yourself and the car ahed FOLLOWING TOO CLOSE! I'd hate to see it play out like that but sometimes they can be pricks :dunno: Good luck man!

01-17-2004, 10:43 AM
hehe i hope the jeep is alright :D

01-18-2004, 11:07 AM
Sucky Myles, where did you finally end up taking the lude to get fixed?

01-26-2004, 09:22 AM
i ended up taking it to Exotic Car International aperently they do a most outstanding job. As for the 50/50 thing its alright, the cops said that its not my fault at all and neither did the claims people so its all good.

01-26-2004, 11:46 AM
Good stuff, pull a copy of the accident report to verify that they wrote down that it's the other guy's fault.
If so, sounds like you're all set to get it fixed.

01-26-2004, 11:55 AM

get a rental. his insurance will have to pay for it.

It's really tough (unless you have a lawyer) to push the other insurance company to pay for a rental, especially if you are under 25 (I have no idea how old Mr. Touchdown is). But if he has a lawyer, it's definately a good try.

It will never look like new, at least not in your eyes, that's what happened when mine got hit =(

01-27-2004, 09:36 AM
yeah i know what your saying, im 20 and i should get a rental car. And it will look like new its just going to have to have some getting used to.

01-27-2004, 08:04 PM
Yeah, I'm 19, and the insurance won't pay for a rental while the car is in the shop, but they WILL pay cab fare up to $40/day.
May want to look into it.
I didn't mean the body shop won't make it look like new, but rather it just won't seem it in your head.
