    Last week was not a good week for me!! I was hit by a city bus!! And it was my fault on top of it!! I was in a part of town I am not usually in, and either ran the stop sign, or when I pulled away from the stop sign I just didn't see the bus!!

    Anyhow no one was hurt, thankfully. Be praying the insurance company will not "total" my car!! It is a very good little car, all paid for and low milage!! We bought it brand new and have taken good care of it. Here are some photos. The bike rack on the front of the bus punctured the back door and damaged the back fender and the bumper.

    Thankfully you are all ok. As for the car I am praying that it won't cost too much to fix and that the insurance company doesn't write it off.

    Oh no! I'm glad you are ok. Except for your pride and your PAID OFF car. :aww

    Now I have to say it.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] What are you woman, BLIND, that you did not see a CITY BUSS? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sounds just like my kind of mistake. I pulled out in front of the Hells Angels once. But fortunately, very fortunately, didn't hit anyone. [​IMG] I didn't see them either. [​IMG]

    Man, Rebettzin, I thought I was the only one who got in a wreck and admitted it was totally my fault. My car (a 2-door Civic) was totalled, but I don't think your Camry is. Maybe replacing the door and rear panel is all it needs.

    Ouch! Glad nobody was hurt. Hope the alignment isn't shot, fixing that is hard if not impossible some times. It's a FWD car so maybe it's not as bad since the back was hit.

    I think I am going to drive by our mechanic's shop and see if he knows someone who can fix it for less than the over $4000.00 that the adjuster is saying it will cost to fix. Maybe with some parts from the junkyard, some bodywork, and paint... I can get it fixed for less.

    I really don't want to have to try to find a different car for what the insurance company might say my car is worth.

    There were no chickens in the car, right???!!! [​IMG]

    just kidding... [​IMG] You do come first. I'm glad you were not hurt.

    4000 bucks sounds totaled to me. Make sure they verify that the frame is not bent - a bent frame can destroy tire after tire.
