4 lane road with a turning lane in the middle and I was in turning lane.. truck stopped to let me by and I didn't see any cars coming on the other lane and tried my best to make sure but I was wrong... an old escort hit me right in my passenger side front axel. Only spun me about 90 degrees. No injuries to my knowledge, everybody was just shaken up. A co-worker was at the store when it happened getting gas (out of all people, it was this one person) so he was my comfort at the moment. Before I got out (breathing in all the air-bag smoke) I couldn't bear to think what the other car and the lady inside looked like.

Thank you GOD (only to HIM) for no injuries and the safety of everybody involved!!

here go the pictures...







Good thing I just spent $1100+ on a new clutch assembly and hydrolics! woo!

What's going on!?!? All these Tib wrecks. I think the Celica owners put a bad mojo in the air against us.

It's been pouring here all day and I'm afraid to drive home!

Sorry to hear that. Glad you're OK.

Drive safe people

should I keep my clutch+fly or sell it? it still hasn't been delivered and I need the money but I also need the clutch lol.. depending on how much will cost to repair it.

OH and for the record, my air-bag light was ON (i have an xm box under my seat) and all my air-bags worked wonderfully and smelled horribly!

It comes back to it look'n like you're going to be at fault...I'd say if you haven't got it yet...find out what the return is on it because I'd say you might need money else where...but still hard to tell at this point. Have to see what all you're gona have to cough up for the accident itself? I know you understand the logic...you've already thought about it 100000000000000 times...you'll figure out will work best.

First off,,,, six, Im very glad your ok. Second Im PISSED!!! You got hit on the side and your AB went off. I go head long into the rear of a Pickup @45 and nothing. Anyways,,, if you want to sell that clutch assembly Ill buy it from ya, from one wrecked bro to another. I spoke to the repair shop the other day and my Tib should be done by about the end of next week.
Who else has had a wreck, the only ones that I know of is me and Six.

just got back was out of town. Monday I suppose I'll know more but not sure what they are going to decide. I know I'm going to need the $$ so i'll def sell or return. THEGREATWHITE dang man you are definitely encouraging haha I know what happened was something I'd never do for common sense's sake but it happened so whatever happens it will work out ok.

When my bags went off I didn't even notice really till they deflated... it's like they didn't even touch me but I dunno really. $250 collision deductable.
