One Hundred and Eighth Question

Today it is snowing where I live. This has got me thinking about the less than ideal driving conditions on the roads. Have you ever been in a car accident? If so, what happened, was it your fault, etc.?

    i have been in one major accident and a few fender benders. the major one was on a big freeway intersection in houston during my junior year of high school. my boyfriend at the time was driving, but it wasn't his fault. and actually...no fault was ever determined because one of the drivers dissapeared a few weeks later, never to be found. i went to the hospital for a few bumps and bruises, but the car went to the junk yard :(

    About two weeks after I got my driver's license I slid off the road and narrowly missed a pond. It was icy and I was in a hurry to get home before I got grounded. I was also rear-ended once.

    i've been in too many fender benders to count. most of them were my fault, except one. luckily, i've never been in a major accident.

    2 months after I got my first car (a HUUUUUGE 75 Buick Century) some doofus pulled out right in front of me and totalled my baby. His fault, but all I got was a stinking $770 from the insurance. Weather: sunny and clear, 75*F.
    Also got into a side-swipe a few years later. Fault: third person who drove off. Sunny and clear, 50*F.
    The only "accident" I've ever had in inclement weather is I slid into a curb (on a steep hill) and lost a hub cap.

    I've been in 2 car accidents in my life. I was rear-ended both times. Neither was my fault.

    The first one was by an elderly couple whose reflexes weren't that good and when I slammed on the brakes ... well let's just say they didn't.

    The second accident was this January when road conditions weren't that great, but it was some teenage girl that was messing around on the expressway and somehow hit me in stop and go traffic. Luckily there was minimal damage.

    Knock on wood, no, I haven't. I've had a few close calls, but I think there must have been an angel on my shoulder.

    I've been rear ended five times, all while at a complete stop at a light or stop sign. Then I mixed it up a bit and rear ended someone else. Oh and the time I flew my VW bug over a parking lot divider at 35mph. That was exciting!
