she cut across 3 lanes of traffic and the civic ran into her hard enough to push the suspension into the engine cradle/frame. the subframe is cracked. my daughter was on that side in the back and bounced her head off the window. she was more mad she didnt get any donuts for breakfast than getting hurt from the accident (neither were hurt though, ayla just had a small bump above her eyebrow). the civic was obviously speeding, it was just a young kid and this was his 2nd accident in 2 months. i think he was 19. mommy and daddy were there, they were smoking and joking so im sure they will buy him another car if his is totaled (leaking coolant/oil/etc) the picture is misleading. kristen was pulling across 3 lanes of traffic from the right in the direction of the arrow on the road. the civic hit the car hard enough to spin it almost 90 degrees. sadly, the cop understood the plight and the other driver was not cited only because kristen was 100% wrong. funny thing is the civic was pulling into that same parking lot. personally im not sure how the car could have made the turn at that speed. the elantra has run into 2 other cars in the front, and been run over by a handicap van, the passenger side suspension destroyed by a giant boulder in the road, and now this. its been a total trooper and worth the money we spent/put into it. so im not mad. just aggravated about the stupid laws. the NEW CAHHH is a VW jetta its an 07 GLS 5 speed with 55K on it. dealer maintained 1 owner. listed for 9700 we got it for 8900. fully loaded minus sunroof. heated leather. premium sound. 2.5L NA bulletproof engine. its almost immaculate inside, and besides some very minor scratches on the outside just as nice. just happened a month early i guess as we were ditching the elantra at tax time.
