Smashed

A friend at work got rear-ended on the way home last night. I was driving home and was coming up on what appeared to be someone waiving over traffic because a car was getting a tire changed, but when I passed I saw it was my friend that had been hit by another guy at work. that makes for a real awkward situation. everyone was ok, and the saturn is stil drivable, but the ford ranger that did the hitting seemed almost perfect. a little tweek on the front bumper resulted in a completly caved in trunk on the saturn. So... those of you with saturns (*caugh* DAN/Sarah) when a ford ranger is coming up quick in the rear view, move over.

Did you not hear??? Sarah got hit last summer going out of the sub division by a ford ranger. Just tweaked the bummper, hood, and front fender. Total cost to their insurance... almost $4,000. Can't tell though the body shop did an excellent job.

now that you mention it I do vaguely remember... how interesting. rangers and saturns don't mix.

The moral of the story is don't hit a plastic car, they are expensive to fix (and if you own one, keep it insured 'cause you don't want to pay to fix it if you crash it).
