Default Dumb woman, poor subaru....

Well i just got in a wreck and i thought i would share my experience. I was turning left onto a busy road. The road has two lanes going south and two going north. I was turning north. the right lane heading south was full but a woman in an Explorer gave me space to inch out. I couldn't see the second southbound lane, but the northbound was clear. The lady waved to be that it was clear. I inched out more and not 2 seconds later two car are coming right at me. Thank God i was going about 2 mph and only had my nose in the lane. The first car missed by a hair and i hit the second on the passenger side door. His approximate speed was 40mph. Thankfully a sherrif saw the entire thing, but by the time i told him the lady waved me into oncoming traffic, she was gone. The city cop came and the sherrif explained the situation, and i got off with no ticket. By what i could see, my bumber and hood need to be replaced, and the other guys door and an a few body panels need to be replaced.

maybe its time to get a CF hood and a Bodykit....but i wish i got that stupid womans plates....

Thats like the first thing you should learn when learning how to drive is to never trust other people. I'm sorry, but I don't feel bad for you one bit. Why the hell would you listen to some bitch driving an Explorer waving you over there? Come on...I'm actually shocked the cops thought that was a legitimate excuse.

That does suck, but I must say I would never trust anybody waving me clear. If I can't see its clear then it isn't clear. You should avoid those turns or wait until she was gone.

1) I would put my life in the hands of a complete stranger.

2) I would never put a complete strangers life in my hand's.

Didnt they ever tell you in driving school NEVER to flashd or wave at people to go? Thats an easy way to get an accident blamed on yourself. Lesson learned, you got lucky this time. Go play the lottery

Calling the woman dumb and stupid doesn't make it seem like he's giving her a break for her mistake...

Wow ... Bad judgment on your part, not the ladies' ...

Plus you didn't collide with her, so she's not liable at all even if you got her plates ...

His car sure did, but it's because he messed up, not the woman. Of course, god forbid someone take personal responability for their actions in today's society.

To clarify, i didn't fully trust her, because i "payed attention in driving school", i nudged forward a little more to where my front end was about a foot in the lane after she waved me. I was careful enough to at least try to look at the lane, instead of just taking off, but by that time it was too late. About liability, i'm paying, but they officer said that he would have definitly written her a citation if he had caught her, because in the past someone waved a driver and they hit his crusier, totalling it(if that ain't karma for you), so he doesn't play around with that type of thing anymore


Addressing Bokuden, I know i should never trust some random person,and i take responsibility for the wreck, but who would wave someone into oncoming traffic and not even see if they were ok after the wreck? You think i'm a bad seed of society for not taking responsibility? Well this woman could have possibly killed me, and the first thing she did was run, so don't tell me how bad i am, because i know when i'm wrong and i admit it. So why don't you correct yourself before mocking my mistakes

I did notice he called the woman in the Explorer "dumb", which is ironic considering he was the person at fault.

You do have a point sand, she should not have driven away. I bet she was scared you would kill her

And to all those who never make mistakes, don't post about how it was my fault because i'm pretty sure thats been established by now. My comments on the woman being "dumb" are not because i got in a wreck and am seeking a scape goat for my actions, its commenting on her stupidity and outright disregard for myself and other drivers

I've do the opposite of the woman in the blazer. There's a bad turn where I park downtown that the traffic never seems to end. I always see the people trying to peek around my car inching closer and closer to oncoming traffic. I don't wave them on when it's clear but I shake my head at them when it's not clear.

I never trust anyone else to tell me if it's clear but I sure pay attention if they signal that it is not.

Her stupidity?

She was just waving you to get the f__ out of the way probably, not signalling you that the lane was clear of incoming cars ...

Take it from a graduating law student.... LEFT TURNS ARE AT THE DRIVERS RISK... NO MATTER IF A BLIND RETARDED CHIMPANZEE IS AT WHEEL OF THE ONCOMING VEHICLE....

Do not use the woman waving you in as your excuse...it just shows that you were more negligent by listening to a dumb ass woman who wasn't paying attention either.

In legal terms, there is a presumption of guilt against the left turn driver. It sucks, but it is the law. Left turns are probably the worst kind of accident to get into. Most of them are serious accidents, and even though the oncoming driver is beating a light or speeding, it will most likely be the left turn driver's fault. I can't stress that enough.... Without witnesses, you're toast.

The woman did not have a disregard for you or other drivers either. In the eyes of the law and reasonableness she does not owe a duty to you (turning left) or the other drivers going straight.

Maybe she plain didn't see the car coming. It wasn't really any of her concern anyway since you're the one responsible for seeing where you're going. I make mistakes, but I never believe other drivers like that.

As I said, that sucks.

Mistakes happen, but I can bet he will never trust a wave through again.

I think the lady who waved him through will be laughing her ass of right now. her fake wave was teh funnay!

yea, as i said before, there was a sheriff sitting three cars back, my friend in the passenger seat, and about 50 other cars on the road. So its is agreed that she signaled me. Also the other driver said that this is his 7th wreck and he just wants the problem solved/ I'm trying to work a deal with guy so it doesn't go on insurance (no ticket, no insurance ) He is very cooperative and doesn't mind as long as his car gets fixed right. So i guess i lucked out with the insurance, but you live and learn i guess...
