I am pretty sure I totaled the Mazda late Friday night.. I just saw it today for the first time and it looked pretty BAD vs. what I though it was going to be.. What happened was I was going found a very sharp corner like a 180* (left) hairpin turn, the posted recommended speed is 10mph.. I was going 25-30 right before the turn and right as I was about to brake to slow down and take the turn an oncoming car went into my lane and I swerved to the right, I hit the lose gravel shoulder and hit the brakes and ABS kicked in and it was like I was on ice my car wouldn't stop or redirect itself at all.. I went straight into a small ditch and the passenger side front end of my car went into a concrete post.. The air bags did not go off, the person that drove into my lane DID NOT stop, a friend that was following my pulled off the road to check on me, and I climbed out the window because my door wouldn't open.. I got out of the car and my friend was like lets get off the road there is a parking lot a half block away, so we drove his car down there and we talked for a minute like do we call the police what happens now type stuff.. And he goes well call my friend he has a big truck that can pull you out so we called him really quick because he lives just down the street and once he gets here we can call the police and haul it out, so a few minutes pass and the guy shows up, telling us there is a cop already at my car, so I am like oh ok so we go back over there and and I talk to him, they are pretty pissed that we left the area but I wasn't going to be sitting around on the narrow curvy dark road I just crashed on I could easily get hit or something, it just didnt seem safe.. So then he gave me a field sobriety test and he stopped me in the middle of it and was like your fine.. THEN his partner came over a little old Asian guy he starts YELLING at me telling my I am going to go to jail for a DUI and all kinds of crap and tells me he has a witness that called the police station that I was driving to fast and they saw 2 people climbing out of the car.. Well first of all the only car that was around was my friends and the person that ran me off the road, and second I was driving ALONE.. OK my friend was going to tow my car out for me and the police said NO there was a tow truck on the way and I said NO I want to tow it, and they said NO.. So it got towed away.. Then the Asian guy kept yelling at me telling me I was going to go to jail for street racing and a DUI.. He was such an ASS!!! So then I got a ticket for $538 for negligent driving in the 2nd degree!!!???? So I am going to contest the ticket and show pictures and everything... I asked why I was getting this ticket and he said shut up and take it because he could write me up for hit and run because I wasnt in the area when the police showed up AND I could of getting negligent driving in the 1st degree because I had been drinking but he didnt because he knew I was on probation and either or them would of put me into jail...
And here is the kick in the balls.. I only have minimum coverage on my insurance, so just liability because my car is all paid for, so I am going to call them today and I am guessing nothing will be covered and it will be a total loss
I had full coverage until my last go around and I rand into money problems couldn't afford full coverage so I had to drop it..
Here are pics....
