The rear bumper on my 2000 Volkswagen Beetle finally met its match. After having two collisions that left other cars torn up with nothing more than a scuff mark to show for it, someone finally ran into the back of my car at thirty miles per hour. All five stars of safety rating exploded out the fender and onto the road.
For those that want the specifics, I was just stopped in the right hand lane behind a line of cars waiting for the light to turn. I looked up just in time to see a blue mini-van coming up on my six, FAST. I held fast on the brake and hoped I wouldn’t get sandwiched. Glad that I didn’t get pushed into anyone else. Just a little stiffness to show for it the evening after and no serious pains or problems. Shew.
Today the other guys insurance claimed the liability and I picked up a rental care and got my car towed. The long wait for my car to, hopefully, be fixed and not totaled begins.
