Well yesterday i was rear ended by some guy driving a dodge Durango. He must have been doing 40+ because my poor baby didnt fare well...
I am alright, it was just me driving the car and i dont have any injuries what so ever, very lucky. totaled my car obviously. also shoved me into a subaru in front of me, which only recieved a slightly bent bumper and some paint scratches from my car.










his durango, not much damage. makes me want a durango lol

Kay-runch. Glad you're ok and hope you didn't have anything too important stowed away back there! Good luck with the insurance values and car shopping.

nothing that cant be replaced... just a sub was distroyed, the amp and a second battery was salvaged, got pushed into my back seat. pretty much everything in the trunk was pushed into my back seat.

:blink: Wow that must have made one heck of a loud bang!!! :ph34r:

Glad you were not hurt, the old Bull performed as designed!!

That Durango most likely will be totaled also, all it takes is a higher mileage vehicle with a bent up frame rail.


Now the fun begins with the insurance company, but shopping for a new Bull can be fun!!

Glad you were ok. You got feel a little sore today. When I see that type of damage from a rear-end hit, it just gives me more fire power why I will never ride in the back of a Mini or similar vehicle. IIRC, those middle part of the front bumper on the Dodge is steel. Hope you make out in the end w/ another car you enjoy.

No intention to start a war, but that's why I love Dodge! :p So strong!
Sorry about your car though! Good luck getting that SHO![/b]
Not trying to start a war either, but the Taurus was the one that got rear ended, and it took it like a champ.

Glad you and everyone is OK. Hopefully you get good money from the your insurance company.

Dakota/Durangos dont have the best crash test ratings. Look like by the time he hit the brakes, he had already rear ended the Taurus. The higher front bumper made contact with the Taurus's trunk, not the bumper.
