    Well, I did get a couple business cards from people who saw it happen. They should back me up, which is why the whole issue of her disputing this is ridiculous. How can she think she'll get away with it?

    People always do that though. So rare that someone actually takes responsibility. Time to think about a lawyer?

    What did the police say?

    When I was hit back at the end of September, the girl admitted to the officer that she ran the red light and hit my car. However, because of medical claims, the lawsuit is still in the works.

    Good luck is all I can say...

    She ran the light, Simple.
    (For Normal people) Yellow is caution, and to slow down.
    (For ME - it's hand on the line-lock and ready to launch)

    Make sure you keep your cool. Who got the ticket?

    Get checked by a doctor just in case.

    Oh - and I hope you learned your lesson Younggin.

    Never Ever trust other drivers - Especially at lights.

    I didn't call the police. I didn't wanna be a dick about it and get her in more trouble than I figured she'd already be in.

    The thing is, though, it can't have even been CLOSE to yellow when she ran it. I had my car in Park while I was waiting for the light to change. I changed gears AFTER the light did, and THEN started pulling out into the intersection, only to nearly get broad-sided by an SUV. Fortunately she only caught the bumper, but it could have been a lot worse.

    Please. I always keep my cool. Nobody got a ticket though.

    I seriously find it impossible to believe that there is anything wrong with me physically b/c of this. I've gone to the gym today and yesterday, both after the accident, and I'm fine.

    I am definitely not an overly trustworthy driver - I do not follow very closely at all, ever. Partly because I don't have comprehensive insurance (means I'm only covered if the other driver is at fault). So, I can't like be accidently rear-ending someone, 'cause that would be bad.

    Don't worry Chase. CSI will find a fingernail in the intersection and therefore prove that the light was red.

    That's true.

    At least here, you have to call the police if there's a wreck. It's the law.

    How can you file insurance if there's no officical police report of the accident? They'll make it much more complicated than it already is. You pay out the nose for months and months and they hold onto the money when you need them to help you.

    Glad to hear you're ok, Chase.

    I always offer to call the cops when an accident occurs. (It helps that I'm never at fault.) I love to hear the excuses people make, and the backpeddling from bravado, when they know they're at fault.

    Let the insurance people deal with it, and don't worry about it. You're ok, and that's the important thing.

    Boy, do I have some stories about stupid drivers! Like the one who was traveling 85 in a 25 zone, without insurance, on a revoked license, in a car with dead tags, that wasn't hers, who ran into my ambulance while I was stopped at a red light, in front of the town police station.

    "Lucee...you got some 'splainin' to do...!"

    I've got a million of 'em.

    Me, too, Chase.

    BTW, how come CSI only finds evidence at the otherwise spotless scene and never any noncollateral dried dog shit or something? What, do they work in Toronto?

    Same thing happened to a friend of mine two days ago. Of course the person who hit him was drunk and my loser friend was high ... they both just quietly tip-toed away from the situation.

    I don't any of these things! This is the first accident I've ever gotten into!
