    Im just glad all is well for your family. Shaken but not stirred is the best outcome in that horrific event. Hopefully insurance will sort you guys out for a car. Best of wishes to your family & you.
    Have you gotten your hands wet today?

    Thanks Guys.. Carrie is doing ok now.... she is feeling the soreness more acutely but ok.


    The car is on the other hand not. It total loss. Net repairs of $10, 483.00 far exceed it worth.

    Really bummed. It was a good car, and we would have kept it for years to come I am sure. It was perfect for my daughter to drive. All those payments and zip to show for it.

    Such a bummer but very fortunate. I see some pretty wild accidents on a daily basis. Unfortunately while you do all the right things as a driver there are so many out there that you can't control. Glad to hear she is ok

    Glad everyone is OK Al. Bummer about the car. Insurance never pays what the car was really worth to you, or its replacement cost.

    Good to hear that Carrie is fine Al. Do you get nothing on the car? At least it's current value?

    Pat the way it works i guess is they appraise its value before the accident and pay off the loan first and then i get the difference between the value and loan amount....or if its value is less...i may have to pay the difference on the loan. Im waiting for the loan people to get us the buyout.. i just went to clean it out of of our personal stuff and get the plates .

    So sorry to hear that Al. That is the very unfair part about the insurance system. That has happened to us twice now. The last time being the one Kyle was in. The car was great, had years left on it and was paid for. Not only do you lose a great car for your kids but you have to start payments again. It really hits the household income hard. The worst part is you are just doing what you are supposed to be doing and some idiot just changes your lives and walks away. Even years later we look back on it and shake our heads as we have to figure out the logistical nightmare of sharing cars when the kids are home from school. I really wish there was something in place to better protect the innocent drivers in these accidents.

    I live in fear of something happening to Charlotte. She's an '89 S-10 but she is almost pristine. But since she is old she is considered to have no value, despite a newly rebuilt engine.

    Al, if you don't mind a small car, look into a used Fiat 500. They are not expensive and seem to have more room on the inside than it looks like they could. They are amazingly reliable, despite being Italian. It's the car that the Pope rides around in. They are a bit under-powered with an automatic so look for a standard unless you don't like shifting for yourself

    And so the Saga Goes on,,, what went from no major issues except being sore has over the last few weeks turned into my wife seeing several specialist for her knee. After the accident I had taken her in to the walk in Er and gotten her checked out. Her knee had been sore. They diagnosed it as probably sprained.. Last week it started hurting her, and got progressively worse and she started having trouble walking on it. Stairs are especially bad. She went to the orthopedic Dr and they diagnosed her as having some kind of fluid build up. , it had a name I am totally not remembering as I am typing this. Apparently because her leg was extended on pedal during the crash, it took the brunt of the impact. So now she needs to have the fluid removed and 7 weeks of physical therapy. Sigh... couldn't be a worse time for her, as a teacher. end of the school year is hell without this.

    Very sorry to hear that Al, never like to see anyone go through all of this especially on the injury front. I hope with some time everything heals and starts getting back to normal. Wishing y'all the best!
