Angry She didnt like the front end of my RS so she redisigned it for me. :( semi-long)

Well things are not going well for me 2day, first this morning I had the car back at the dealer for the alignment.

Second Work sucked. My friend and I decided to go to englishtown raceway tonight to race. So we leave around 5:30. This is were the night starts going bad. Al Gore was in southern Jersey, which I did not know, The Garden State Parkway exits 131 through 109 were closed. So we are stuck in traffic on the parkway for 2 hours. My friend was driving his 95 Impala SS, and I was driving my RS, we just sat next to each other on the highway talking, we are going 5 miles an hour or less. Well they finally open the parkway back up and we eventually make it to Texas RD. The turn off for Englishtown Raceway.

Now for those who dont know Texas RD is a very long straigt, road with one or two curves. So here is the Order A lady in front of my friend driving a brand new Chevy Malibu, then behind her my friend in his 95 impala ss, and then my in my RS, we are the only three on the Road. its around 7pm. So we are going along just fine, and then it happened, while we were doing about 55-60mph, My friend said he saw the lady slump over like she fell asleep.

She swerveres into the gravel gutter on the right side of the road, this wakes her up my freind said, mean while I see him hard on his brakes, and her tailights swerving, well hitting gutter woke her up and she jerked the wheel to the left and shot into the oncomming traffic lane,(luckly no one was comming), this made her jerk the wheel back to the right and she slammed into the gard rail hard ass hell, then she shoots back acroos the road and starts to spin she spun like twice and bounced off the other gardrail and headed right back at my friends car, he tried to avoid her but she sidewiped him, this made her start going the wrong direction in my lane heading right for me, I was at a dead stop, I stopped as soon as she started spining and bouncing off the gaurdrail like a ping pong ball. I thought her car stoped, I couldnt really see cause her front bumper and headlights got torn off allready. So I get ready to jump out of my car to see if she is ok, but what the hell she heading right for me extremely fast! So I slam the car into reverse and dump the clutch, and start flying in reverse, but I was to slow and tagged me head on. This caused her to bounce back into the oncoming traffic lane and me to start cursing my head off. Then I really looked at her car and saw how badly it was damaged so I stopped yelling and quickly jumped out to see if she was ok, the car was smoking badly. She popped out of the door and started yelling oh my God it just started spinning! Did I hit you. Well the answer was yes, but I just told her to get away from the car and relax. Oh meanwhile my friend pulled over, and tried to warn traffic, (her car was stopped in the oncoming traffic lane, and the cars coudnt se and end up coming to a screaching halt almost casuing a five car pile up. I quickly run to my car and get my cell phone and call the police. Thank God noone got hurt. Except the cars. My friends impala, left rear quarter panal, and left rear door are gonners, the door is not that bad. My front bumper is trash, its dented and scratched by my r.f. fog light it would have been much worse if I didnt slam it in reverse, to try and get away from her, It would have been air bags and a totaled RS if I didnt stop and reverse. Im very said Her Malibu is totaled, dead, a gonner. So when you all Go down to englishtown this sunday look at the gaurdrails on texas road and you can see the aftermath. *sigh* I dont know what else to say, Except this is the last thing I need with the pending lemon law lawsuit.

Later All


EDIT: this all took place in less than 30 seconds.

It was her fault, she was driving the chevy, and fell asleap, her insurance gots to pay! for my car and my friends car. She didnt admit, she fell asleep, she tried to blame it on the car. Its ironic, she called it a lemon, and I have a lemon law lasuit going on for my RS

Jesus Christ. Idiocy strikes again. Well, at least it was just your cars that got hurt, and not yourselves.

Just wanted to say, nice reaction throwing it in reverse. Very few people would have thought of that one spur-of-the-moment like that.

Have a Nice Day?

You should have thrown it in reverse then backed off the road or something

Thats some crazy shiznit though... Some people need to learn not to overreact so much, cause they are the real dangers on the road...
"Oh my god! A piece of cardboard!" *swwweeerve* CRASH!

Lemon Law? Hmmm.. and you threw it in reverse? Awesome sense of self-preservation and very quick reactions. You almost had the whole lemon problem solved though.

That sounded like some extremely scary stuff.

After all the bouncing around she did, its amazing she was able to step out of the car.

Hope everything goes well for you.

Jay,
I'm glad to hear that all are ok, that sounds like quite the amazing accident. Iím not surprised, but it kind of pisses me off that that lady didnít take responsibility for the accident and tried to pawn it off on a defective car. I was ridding with a friend in College who did something similar and flipped her Blazer (no one else was involved because it was 5:00am), but she admitted that she dozed off for a second and went onto the shoulder. Of course I have a problem with a car that rolls over just because you drove onto the shoulder and swerved back onto the road, but that is another whole topic.

Wow. People do that all the time in AZ when they blow tires. I've seen a few close calls, but never been entangled in one.

BTW, (OT) have you mentioned the lawsuit on this board before? If not, I'm curious as to what it's all about.

I'm sorry to hear about your misfortune, but thank god no one was hurt. As for getting yours fixed, good luck and I hope you get a new RS soon. Lemon lawsuits can take a while but I knew a fella who had a ram pickup lemon and dodge did by him right and gave him a new truck--free and clear.
Hope your that lucky Mcdade, keep us posted, and I'm glad you and your friend are all right.
