Car Smash

Car Smash 10 Jan 2010
Woke up this morning to find our car smashed up. The person who did it allegedly fled. We’re in contact with the police and we’re very hopeful it’ll all work out. You can virtually rubberneck here if you’re interested.
I’m just way worried right now, because I need that car on Tuesday morning to make the next Inkscape class session and I don’t think it’s safe to drive, and I’m not sure how that could be righted in time. I’m trying to work that out now.

      They just take your car instead. 🙂
      I remember seeing a video you posted of some guy stealing a car in the parking lot, from your web cam that was sitting in the window, several years ago. 🙂

    • yeh but there's no way I am paying that unless insurance covers it. I have to leave at 6:30 AM, and it's quite likely no car rental place is open then – which means I have to take a day off work to get the car the night before, and I have to by some miracle find a car rental place that is on the subway… :-/

  1. Since it is someone elses fault, their insurance should take care of a rental. But if you can't find the guy to charge his insurance, then you'd have to use your 'underinsured motorists' part of your insurance. Since you have liability only, that might not be the case either.
    Lastly, if you can't get the rental and still need the car, judging from the pictures you'd be able to drive it if you remove the front bumper or duct tape it off the road enough to drive. I don't think there was any engine damage, looks completely bumper related.
    Good luck, sorry for your crappy situation.
