Hit & Run

45 posts in this topic

Me and XP715 are driving around at like 10:30PM tonight and we come to a stop sign... we're the third car in line. A 1992-ish Blazer S10 in front of us suddenly slams into the back of the first car in line. Glass shatters & the sound of crunching metal fills the air... both cars pull over. the rear of a 1998ish KIA Sephia comes into view. One tail light is pushed into the trunk... the litle Korean $h!box is probably totalled.

Me and Ross give each other the "Oh $h!" look and start laughing our asses off. No one was probally hurt but a purple KIA just got wrecked. THAT's funny. I high-five him and we laugh like hyenas.

Then something NOT so funny happens. The dirtbag in the Balzer lights up his rear tires on the black ice and takes off! I look at Ross... he just stares stunned. I tell him to floor it as his foot touches the firewall & we take off after the asshole in the Blazer. As we pass the KIA we get the deer in headlights from a girl in her late teens or ealry 20s.

We desperatelly try to catch up to the Blazer but it's a lost cause, he flies down the road at dangerous speeds. Black ice & snow is still all over the roads since we got like 10" of snow today and this prick is doing like 60 in a 35. The asshole must have ducked into a side road because as soon as we hit a straightaway he was gone.

Lucky for the girl Ross managaed to notice the plate, or at least most of it. Maine plate: "2507MC" to the best of his recollection. We went back to the scene of the accident to see if she was okay but the KIA was long gone. I blame myself for our inability to get this guy. If I had had my cell with me I could have called 911 right then and there and told all the local towns to be on the lookout for a dark colored Blazer S10 with a bent front bumper. As it stands we went back to my house and called the Chelmsoford Police Dept. but it was probably too little too late.

What started as a funny story about a totalled purple KIA Sephia turned real ugly. I feel for her. Insurance companies suck and the burden of proof will be on her. :(

As long as no one is hurt there's really nothing you can do other than laugh it off. When I "drifted" my G/Fs Mazda MX3 GS into a metal light pole on a wet day I laughed. I'm sure a few other pople did as well. Too bad the car got wrecked but it had some seriously HARD 157,000 miles on it. Burned through oil like an Iraqi oil well, suspension was about as tight as a 42 year old Crack Whore's *$@&% and the whoile car reeked of cigarette smoke. Gross.

With some luck the scumbag who rear ended her will get what's coming to him, she'll get KBB for her KIA and will step into a much nicer car... like a cobalt or HHR.

Kia driver to her insurance company: "I got rearended at a stop sign."

Kia driver's insurance company: "How fast would you say you were going when you backed into this alleged Blazer? 40 mph?"

Seriously, no matter what car or whatever, accidents like that aren't funny. That could be the only car she could afford and you have no idea what the insurance situation is like.

I've been in three accidents, none my fault, and thankfully all taken care of pretty straightforwardly, and regardless of what kind of car someone's driving, I don't wish that amount of hassle, time-consumption, and utter bull$h! on anyone.

Ocnblu:

Yes.... exactly. That's what I was saying to XP. This guy screwing out of there might make this girls life a nightmare for a long time to come. Like say she got rear ended last year and an expensive car was totalled out: now she's claiming the same thing etc... Insurance Co. immediately thinks "FRAUD!".

Fly:

You ever have a fried slip on ice and fall on their ass? You laugh because it's a gut reaction not because of your lack of concern. You give 'em a hand and ask it they are alright but you still have a good laugh about it. Perhaps you would have had to been there. It was a dark, aged, boxy GM truck and the Kia was this purple feminine little thing so right there the juxtaposition was funny.

We had concern for the girl and who ever might have been in the Kia but the way it happened it was like Three Stooges funny.

The way you said that gives off the impression that if the Blazer had stayed and taken responsibility for the accident, you and your chum would've just laughed like hell at this girl's totaled car.

I mean, would you laugh if you saw a Tercel run 80mph into the back of your Camaro or whatever?

You did try to chase down the guy, though. Kudos for that.

Actually I would. I'm dead serious about that.

The car needs rear quarters as is... now some one else would be paying for new ones and a new gas tank and rear bumper and rear valance etc. A Tercel would not do that much damage to my car. Well, at 40mph it might really f@#k up a few crucial things and possibly make the car not worht repairing which would suck. But the initial impact would be funny as hell between a POS Tercel and '68 Camaro.

Jezzus. Even Sodomy boy's all serious about this.

Now if you had asked if it would be funny if a Blazer C/K rear ended me at 80mph I'd say no. That would be painfull not funny and I might be dead. This girl was rear ended at like 15 mph. It was NOT a life or death situation. Let's not doa complete apples-to-oranges thing here.

15 mph collisions are still plenty to screw up someone's back, especially when there's a big size difference like there was here.

True... the good news is snce she was busy looking left making sure it was okay to go (stop sign) she probably never saw him coming. If you don't anticipate the impact you do not tense up and therefore usually you're no worse for the wear with a moder car wiht headrests.

It's called compassion. I know someone who has serious back problems from just a minor 5-10 mph collision in a small car and an SUV. Sorry, but I don't find it funny.

Word to what she said; you guys need to chill out. And like Sixty8 said, it was only funny until the Blazer goosed it and took off, AFTER he feigned pulling over like a decent human being would have after such an occurrence. Also, it's kinda retarded to tell us we're inconsiderate for having a good chuckle over a Kia losing a taillight when we took off chasing after the f@#kbag that slammed into it to get the poor girl a plate number so she wouldn't be completely $h! outta luck. The way insurance works in ASSachusetts is beyond words; if you ask me I'd say we did our good deed for the night. Lighten up.

hey guysssss

i happen to know for a fact that laughing is a defense mechanism , like when your tickled you laugh but its a defense mechanism its not really your body telling you somethings funny, people will laugh when they are in shock because its something the body tells itself to do when the brain isnt processing things fully yet

they stopped laughing when they had something they could process....driving fast

cool it with the "your a heartless bastard sly" its getting old

did you see where he explained that he chaised after the blazer to make things right?

Sixty8 has a good sense of humour but we can OBVIOUSLY tell that he did the right thing in trying to get the guy in the blazer. He had good intentions.

If I was in the girl's shoes, I wouldnt have cared that he laughed, I would have cared that he tried to help. Thats what matters

I wouldn't have EVER laughed at that in the first place. Chasing the Blazer was fine, and the right thing, but that's not what anyone is talking about. He said:

So, mute, what is this about a nervous-laugh defense mechanism bull$h!? Ummmm sorry, don't think so. The only time a crash is really funny is if it is a single-vehicle crash and solely the fault of the ONLY DRIVER INVOLVED. If someone is stupid enough to crash THEMSELVES with no other external forces, THAT can be funny. But when someone crashes into someone else, probably totals a car, what's funny about that? An innocent driver minding their own business is now out of a bit of money. I don't see what's funny.

Croc, the thing you gotta understand with Sixty8 is that he's a dumbass and tends to exaggerate things beyond what they are, and is ALSO excellent at saying really retarded bull$h! that makes him look, shall we say, less than stupendous. Try hanging around with him in person if you don't believe me. Seriously, with stories like this, disregard all but the bare bones of it. What really went down is this: we were coming back from Wendy's in my big red Cadillac, we saw what happened, we said oh $h! and chuckled, and then I took off after the lowlife in the Blazer who thought he could get away. But laughing like hyenas? That's a bit over the top and DOES make us come off as a bit callous, I agree a hundred percent with whoever said it. Still doesn't make it alright for you to be so critical of the guy, though; I say live and let live. From now on, if you read something like this from him, just smile and nod and understand that it's just Sixty8 being Sixty8: sensational and neurotic. You'd be that way too if you lived the way he does, but that's another story for another day. Let's all chill out a bit so this place can be even more enjoyable than it already is.

Zing! :lol::lol::lol:

Seriously though, just ease up on the kid a tad; you guys seem to go at it way more than you actually need to. Don't take this the wrong way, though; I know he does it just as much as you do.

You do what you want, but personally I think we've hit a new low if we're taking sage advice from Foghat! :lol: There IS much to be said for taking it easy, though.
