Here are some pics from the accident I got into this morning. It was a 4 car pile up on the 101 freeway here in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. I was the number 4 car in the accident. I saw that the accident had occurred and I slammed on my brakes as hard as I could which caused my car to pull severly to the right hitting a concrete highway barrier. My car bounced off the barrier or should I say my right front wheel bounced off the barrier and I hit the car in front of me at around 15 MPH. What really sucks is that I just bought a new right front wheel after it was damaged by a pothole. I was surprised this much damaged happened at that low of speed. The car I hit had a metal bike rack on the back of his mini-van which is most likely what caused the damage to the front end of my car. The car took the impact pretty well as I am only sore right now. No airbag deployment. It could have been much worse. Good thing I have a great insurance policy and I am dropping the car off at a local custom body shop to get repaired. They were able to match the black diamond paint as they just did a black diamond V Wagon a couple weeks ago. I will miss not having my V while it's being repaired, but I guess shit happens!
