DH just got in a car accident, update in post #7

DH is just fine, thankfully. Apparently the other guy blew through the stop sign.


In January of 2006 DH got hit by a drunk/hit & run driver. It totaled his car, but he was totally fine. We've been using my car since then, because we don't need two cars. NOW WHAT?!?!?!

I mean, my car is 11 years old, and starting to get to the point where it needs to be replaced, but I was thinking we would be doing that sometime this coming spring.

And DS hasn't napped today. He's exhausted, and fighting sleep like anything. *SIGH*


I'm actually laughing at the level of ridiculous-ness of my day today.

If it is the other persons fault, isn't it their responsibility to fix the car?


So glad to hear dh is safe and fine. I have those days when I just sit and think, well, if one thing is going wrong, everything else might as well also.

Re: DH just got in a car accident

Update:
It was the other driver's fault. But the way our insurance works is we pay for it out of pocket, they send us a check, then send a bill to her insurance, which she then has to pay. But DH says there is no severe damage to my car. It's totally still drivable.

She ran the stop sign and DH hit her from behind/side. It was the front of my car and the corner above her rear tire (driver's side). The impact pinned her fender to the tire and she can't drive it.

When the cops got there they said it was all her fault (DUH!) and wrote her a $200 ticket (in addition to what she's going to have to pay for repairs to both cars). Is it mean that I am happy that she can't drive her car?

And DS is finally asleep.

And even better- Philly is winning!!

Sorry your say was the pits! I hate people not paying attention. I almost got hit the other day and totally dropped the F bomb with my LO in the car.
Alexia isn't sleeping either *UGH*
Glad to hear all is well now.

Re: DH just got in a car accident

thats scary! i am glad he is ok

did the lady have insurance? so many people dont even bother to get insurance it sucks, so its good to pay the extra $6 or so to have unisured motorist added to your policy .
i hope she pays quickly to fix your car.

Thanks mamas.


She does have insurance. It's actually the same company that we have, so that will cut down on the wait for reimbursement checks. I'm just glad DH is ok, and that the car wasn't totaled. I still think Philly should have won, but you can't have it all.
