Unfortunately, it's true, I was in a car accident this afternoon. Luckily no one was hurt.
It was my fault. The traffic had started to flow forward, and I put on the gas, then the cars in front of me slammed on their brakes. I was able to brake but hit the car well enough to jam in the hood of my car, likely trashing the radiator and causing fluids to leak all over. Their car was an SUV-type and the bumper had barely a mark.
Now the part that's hard to admit: I didn't have property damage coverage for my car. I thought that I did. I know at one time I didn't but thought I had changed it. So, her car, which has hardly a scratch is covered but not a penny for mine. It's gut-wrenching. I'm soooo mad at myself. There goes the chance to try this coming month.
Please send positive energy for the repair amount to be as low as possible. I know it will be two hundred for the radiator plus labor. Then, the body damage goes up from there. Not sure if I can put some of that off or not. I'm taking it in tomorrow for diagnoses.
