We have all seen it many times. 4 lane road, driving along in the right lane, traffic fairly heavy, and some jerk just has to pass as many cars as possible so he can jump into the right lane at the last second, cutting someone off. Of course, the person he cut off hits their brakes, and so the chain continues until a car somewhere behind come to a complete stop. Driving to work yesterday morning, route 28 south (ALS knows the road well i am sure), in the right lane going about 50 in a 55PSL. SUV in front of me, so of course i cannot see around it. SUV STOPS dead in the road. I slam on the brake, ALMOST stop, but just give it a little "tap". Whew, that was close ,then BAM!! I get HAMMERED from behind. Then another BAM! All 4 of us pulled onto the shoulder. 5 women and me. I tapped an Equinox, that had almost no damage. I got hit by an older Elantra, and it hit me HARD. My front and back are damaged. The Elantra is a mess, and is puking coolant. A malibu hit the Elantra, but with minor damage. Luckily, no real injuries, although i am pretty sore today. 3 of the 4 of us drove away from the scene, the Elantra needed towed and most likely is a total. My Kizashi will be repaired. This is the first accident i have been in since 1985, and that one was caused by the idiot who ran a stop sign and drove right in front of me. THis is my poor Kizzys second trip to the body shop in 2 years(first was when a truck hit it while it was parked at work. I am not sure if it will stay around after this, but right now i just want it fixed. Not a good Friday for me.
