    Heading to work with my buddy this morning and some idiot mexican decides to switch lanes a POS nissan pickup. He pops my driver side which is unexpected and I lose control at around 90 mph. slide backwards off the freeway, hit a fence, car rolls to the roof, slides to the side of the car, and than back to the roof and slides to a stop on a road completely off the freeway. I miss my car to death and unfortuanetly, I just switched to liability 3 weeks ago from FULL COVERAGE. So Im at a $7000 loss, and Im only 19. The guy that hit me fled the scene as soon as the CHPs show up. So if your in So Cal, get the plates of any old little POS Work truck with rio red on the passenger side door, he hit me.....

    Me and my buddy walked away without a scratch, but a very scary ride.....

    DAMN. Sorry to hear about that, but at least you walked away. At least the airbags didn't pop, you can sell those for a few bucks. Maybe some other stuff, too, try and recoupe what you can.

    Thank God you are alive. Looks like you can sell quite a lot of your stuff to get back some of your lost money too.

    all I can say is: DAMN!! well, good news is you're alright... your car though, I'm sorry bouth that... I've had my share of close calls, but nothing like that... that just plain sucks! so, how much are you getting from insurance?? just out of curiosity? I only have liability too, so I'm kinda curious...

    I can sympathize that being $7K in the hole sucks, however, look at it this way: cars are replacable, people are not. Just glad to hear that you and your buddy are alive and OK.
