one of the worst days of my life today

I was on the way to work and I was in the center of an intersection and the light turned red so I went to complete my turn a a woman in a Chrysler 300 blew the light and spun me completely around and about 25 feet back. Her car is in way worse shape than my zj and no one is seriously injured. She just had a bloody nose. This thing has been my life for the past 4 years all my money and time and work is all gone but she did her job amd did it well. :/

I know how you feel the same exact thing happened to me in my 04 jetta and I was put at fault. Even though she blew through the light.

So many times I've been in that situation and have always been worried someone would blow the light...made me start just not going on red even if it pisses off people behind me...

Hope things go better for ya.

I can feel your pain man... I have the ugliest Jeep but it has become a part of me. I would totally break down and cry if this happened to my baby...

Sorry to hear about your jeep, at least no-one was seriously hurt.
Time to part it out, if you don't get the settlement you want, and hopefully, you'll get enough to get back into another ZJ, maybe even a V-8.
Sometimes, what seems like a crappy situation, can actually be a blessing in the long run. When my 95 Laredo got totalled, the settlement I got was enough to get me into a 97 Limited, so 2 years newer, and a model up. Hopefully you can do something similar.
Good luck.

Good to know that you're OK as is the other driver. I had just fixed everything on mine before I totaled it. I don't think I'd owned it a year. Get another one, if you ask me they're worth their weight in gold.

Thanks guys. Its a lot worse in person than it looks. After it got towed to my dads he called me just about in tears saying that he's surprised i wasn't knocked out cold in the hospital after it happened.
