Crashing and responsibilty

Maybe I am just weird...........

Was having a discussion with a friend earlier and this subject came up. My ex had been driving my car (while we were together) and got rear ended. I was not present at the time. After making sure her and my kid were ok, I inquired after the circumstances of the event. She had been stopped at a crosswalk and the person behind her had not been paying attention.

Had it been her fault, I would have been pissed at her. According to my friend, it should not be relevant. Who is right?

Re: Crashing and responsibilty

Well... the MOST important thing is that lives were safe and sound.

Would I be mad at her? Probably not, because I understand sh!t happens...

But would I trust her behind MY wheels again? Probably not.

Would I question her sense of awareness? Hell yes (the car is supposedly in the middle of a crosswalk, MOST cars stop before the crosswalk. The abnormality itself would alert me.)

Re: Crashing and responsibilty

It's human nature to want to know whether she was at fault, especially when you are talking about a car you obviously have a stronger attachment to than the average driver. You've put a lot of time and work into it. Most normal people would be angry, however, actually acting out on this anger towards the person (being pissed at them) would be wrong because it was an accident that could happen to anyone and they certainly didn't want it to happen (we assume ).
