      Car Accident 1/16/13

      Hi, so I haven't been very active on here recently because I finally received compensation for an accident my car was involved in sometime around late October. The insurance company of the towing company that dropped my car in that accident finally sent me the money to fix my car that had been sitting in the shop for 2+ months through the holiday season.

      Excited to have my car back (1/15/13) I had a good amount of cash left over from the settlement so I blew a good chunk of that money on substances and materials I didn't need. Next day, this happens:

      LUCKILY NO ONE WAS HURT

      I was going down a 45 mph limited single-track road around 2:30 on the 16th when this happened. One second I'm driving my car as I usually would down any other road and the next thing I know, the guy in front of me is at a complete stop and I hit him at a good 35~40 mph I assume.

      Here's what happened:
      It was a 3 car accident involving Car A, Car B, and I. Car A was at a complete stop in the middle of the road, attempting to turn left into a neighborhood. Car B is directly in front of me and told me afterwards that he stopped merely inches short of hitting her bumper himself. His first instinct was to look in his rear view, where he saw me still coming fast, and braced for impact. I saw him braking, but didn't realize he almost completely stopped when I slamemd my brakes. The roads were wet, and my ABS didn't engage after slamming the brakes and skidding for a good second before hitting him. I had no room to swerve to avoid the accident, as there was traffic flow to my left, and a steep hill and trees to my right.

      So yeah, I'm at fault for the accident, and I have no collision insurance on the vehicle. Therefore, I'm receiving zero compensation for my (probably) totaled car. I don't have much money left over to get this thing fixed or purchase a new vehicle

      The feeling of climbing to the top of the world, then all of it to come crashing (lol) down is discouraging, and the past few days have been pretty hard. What sucks worse is my birthday is tomorrow and I have no car to go see anyone...

      Anyway I just thought I'd make a thread about what's been going on in my life, since I haven't really been on here much recently. Hopefully I can get this situation figured out and come out with the best possible scenario for myself. It will be a struggle, but it's nothing more than a setback, really. Worse things have happened to better people, and I'm lucky no one (including myself) was injured during the accident.

      I wasn't even in the car when the first accident happened, hence the word choice.

      A tow truck dropped the car down a small hill and into a mustang below it.

      Car accidents suck (especially when you're at fault )

      Someone slammed into my friends truck. It was obviously their fault, but the cops on the scene drug tested him because he has long hair and he came up positive for THC so they put him at fault even though he wasn't even high at the time and there was no fucking way, looking at the accident, that he did it. He not only got his truck impounded but got charged with possession and is getting his license suspended for 2 years. I hope the person that hit him feels like shit.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      That really sucks. I don't understand how they can get away with urine-testing for drugs (or really derivatives), when it's obviously the blood-concentration of the drugs at the time of the accident that counts.

      Technically he never had to let them drug test him. The cops here make all sorts of threats and lies to get what they want, and they break constitutional law on a regular basis. Not to mention they drive around in undercover vehicles more often than police vehicles these days, like they're a secret police or something. It's pretty bad.
