crashed the compass-stupid move

so I got in an accident today w/ the compass. I was rushing to pick up my daughter from school and went thru a stop sign (didnt notice it and not focusing). I slammed on my brakes when I noticed someone in the lane. I skid and he tried to slow and avoid me. the clipped my front end w/ his passenger side. my whole front end was ripped off. everything but the headlights. I have had a good driving record for few years now (back in my late teens ans early 20s I had some speeding tickets and accidents). it sucks now, insurance goin up on next renewal. I had my 2 yr old in the back seat, she is ok, the accident just interupted her reading a book w/ cops, fire dept and emts looking at her.

That really sucks, but I'm glad nobody got hurt. It looks like the damage was all superficial, too - that's pretty lucky.
