Another Jeep wreck 50mph

Much like azadder's recent wreck, my wife was waiting behind a school bus when she got rear ended by a 94 year old guy who never saw her or the school bus. Thank god my 99 GC took the grunt of the impact, she walked away without a scratch. The 94 year old went to the hospital , but checked out OK.

Here's pictures of both vehicles ...

Christ. I'm glad your wife is ok and i'm sorry to see a Jeep look like that. I do not mean to rant but there is no way a 94 year old should be operating a motor vehicle.

Well first let me say that I am glad that your wife and the old fellow were not hurt seriously. But I also need to say this.
Unfortunately, as we age our senses and reflexes deteriorate to a point where we should no longer be driving. I remember driving with my father when he was in his seventies and asking how come he stays so close to the white line (at the side of the road). His reply was "that's all I can see". He never knew, but I reported him to our licencing department, two days later he gets a letter in the mail to get a doctor's exam and a new road test. Well he failed the medical, and never took the road test; thank goodness!! He was quite upset about losing what he considered his independence, but after selling his Honda, he settled in quite easily into using taxis, and ended up having an account with them. Before he passed away he told me that he should have turned in his licence years before he had it taken away. I just hope I have the common sense to turn mine in before I have it taken away hurt some one because of my physical/mental deficiencies.

Glad your wife is OK. You can replace the car, but not the wife and it looks to me like you get to buy a new car!

After walking away from the crash, she wanted another one just like it. The other drivers insurance co gave us $10k to replace it. Picked up a '99 black/black GC limited in great shape for $8200 with 101k miles. The one we had was at 108k.

It makes me think the GC's are built pretty good for rearend crashes. By looking at Azadders pictures his faired pretty well compared the other vehicle.
