Get in the car after work tonight like normal.
Get on I405S to connect to the toll road like normal.
Get about 1/4 mile. I’m trying to avoid the knucklehead in the lane next to me squeezing into my lane while I’m still in it.
Out of nowhere I get nailed from behind.
I didn’t see anyone come up from behind in my mirrors or go around after.
I was hit pretty hard too. Travelling at about 60MPH, the force of the impact pushed me forward out of the seat until the seat belts grabbed (I didn’t hit anything). Once the seatbelts grabbed I was pulled back with enough force to break the seat!.
I think I’m ok. My back is a bit sore that I am hoping won’t get worse by morning.
Roxy faired pretty well too considering. The rear bumper and boot hatch are broken or bent and the drivers seat is broken. I couldnt’ tell if there was anything else wrong or not.
I had to sit on the side of the road for a few minutes while Roxy rebooted after the sudden shock. She started right up and I was able to get off the freeway to side streets. Here are some crappy pics of the damage:
Did I mention the driver that hit me didn’t even stop?
Anyway, I’m home safe and Roxy is sitting at Crevier, first in line for tomorrow.
I’ll put up a full account tomorrow. I need a hot shower and a bed.
