So I was sitting in a left turn lane.. I then glanced into my rear view mirror to see a white suburban coming over a hill (about half a mile back). As she got closer, she started honking and I had no idea why since there was no one around and she was approaching a red light.

I kept watching and she kept driving, driving, and driving. Then bam! I got shot forward and spun around a little.. :(

Pulled over to a parking lot to talk to her.. and the title says it all.

Back is sore, but my ti-c dodged death and is still in perfect condition! :thumb:

I feel your pain. A few months ago I was getting off the highway and then pulled up to a clover leaf that was back up. I stopped and the car behind me stopped and then some girl in an astro van was on the phone not paying attention and didn't slow down coming off the highway. She slammed into the exterra behind me and then that car tapped my rear bumper. Minimal damage but enough where the body shop took off the bumper and their was more damage under it. My car didn't even have 3000 miles yet. I was soo pissed. Good body shop and now she looks good as new. I would use this chance the shave your rear emblems if the trunk is getting painted. Sorry for your loss

Get to a doctor. Don't worry about the cost since her insurance will be paying for it. In fact, the more it costs, the more you'll get for your bodily injuries, so hit up the ER, and a chiropractor, and an acupuncturist, and anyone else in your area. If you get some Vicodin from your doctor, be sure to mail me a few so I can make sure they're the right ones.

ahaha im right there with you guys, and still scratching my head as well. maybe she wasn't even stopping for the red? She must have been paying some attention since she was honking at me?

She told me I should have readjusted a little bit, and I told her she should have stopped for the red light.

What I dont get is that during this whole time, you're watching her as she gets closer and closer to you and you didn't do anything about it. (pull forward, let go of the breaks or something)

So lame... I'm sorry to hear that man, there are so many selfish and ignorant drivers in this county it's mind boggling. Hope repairs are as minimal and as quick as possible.
