Car landed on my Jeep


Hopefully this will work. Missing the curve in front of our house a Nissan Altima came thru our garden, going airborne a couple of times and landed on my Jeep. It's right front tire resting on my left front tire. A cop on the scene commented the "new" has been worn off this Jeep.

Thanks for the pic fix Vermagicus. Had to delete the first pic to put this one up and did something wrong. Yeah, pretty sure her insurance will pay up. Her company isn't even talking to me yet as she hasn't made a claim. Her car is only two months old and probably totaled. Not from hitting the Jeep, she went thru our garden first, going airborne a couple of times and hitting some wicked stumps along the way. Her right front wheel was way back of where it should have been and it's a front wheel drive so it's gotta be bad. Anyway, I'm going thru my insurance as a "no-fault" claim and they'll collect back from hers. So far, having a harder time trying to get them to cover the damage to our rock wall and garden. My homeowners is willing to handle it but I'll be out the deductable if they get involved. It'll all work out in the end. On a better note, I drove the Jeep to the repair shop. Drives just fine, highway and everything. 4WD works too. I did tell the shop to check out the mechanical closely since it did take a hard lick.

Looks like Careless Airways has opened up an American subsidiary...

This is the third time someone has crashed thru our garden. Our other car got tapped slightly one time, and the first time the errant car stopped in the garden. My wife is pretty peeved about the prospects of putting all this together again. She's of a mind to have a landscaper come out and do it. I guess it depends on the insurance. If they offer us a decent check I'd like to do it ourselves and use the money to buy some boulders to put up at the road. Really big boulders! But they might say they'll only pay directly to the landscaper, which is ok by me too.
Also, I'm going to ask the city if they could put in, maybe not so much a speed bump, but some rumble strips and maybe even some armco in the curve with lots of reflectors. Heck, maybe a speed bump would be better. It's just a crap shoot until a car comes flying thru here and mows someone down. We've been here six years and had three crashers, this time being by far the worst.

I would put some cement poles up at that corner. You never know when the next car is going through your living room. I'm glad that everybody is safe.
