Well it seems as if there have been ALOT of Caddy accidents recently so i figured why not share pics and stories all in one thread. So well as it says post your pics tell the story and be sure to post follow up info. I know it sucks to have your car wreaked or be in an accident and even though everyone doesnt try nor want to wreak it happens to the best of it and no matter how much people say they are sorry for you they still like to see the pics!

Ok I guess I'll post mine first. I posted this about 2 years ago when it happened here on these forums. I found the old thread and simply copied and pasted what happened. So if it sounds strange, its because I wrote it 2 years ago the day after it happened. Im sure some of you that have been around that long will remeber it, but I know there are quite a few new people too.


"well i was on a major road today, 3 lanes each way, metal barrier in the middle, i was in the farthest left lane and some lady in front of me hit soem debris so she was tryin to get over to the shoulder and traffic was kinda congested in that area so she stopped basically in the lane and i came behind her and stopped far enough for me to get around her (she had her hazards on) but i couldnt change lanes due to heavy traffic in the other lanes. Then i look in my rearview and see a Ford Ranger come barreling at me, and i knew he couldnt stop in time, i had no where to go i was pinned so i just braced myself and he slammed me from behind, i hit into the guarrail then my car richochet off and flew across the road and onto a grassy embankment on the side. The ranger had front end damage with airbags deployed and the tarus that was in front of me (the lady) had very minor damage from my car and when my car flew across the road it clipped a new F 150. but my car had the most extenisve damage. in the smaller pic on the left u can see the blue ranger and the white taurus in the background, i was in btwn those two cars in the exact location they are sitting at, and where my car is in the pic, was my final stoppin place after i got hit so you can jsut imagine the force. My whole back end is pushed in, the c pillar on my side is messed up, the back glass is gone, back deck is ripped out, and the rear of the roof is crumpled up somewhat, the front end is brown and imprinted with the guarrail, my nightvision camera is shattered, foglight broken and the grill fell off while being towed. Interior compartment was fine and i came out without a scratch, but the neck is a little sore (i didnt have my seatbelt on, i should have!) The driver side door wouldnt open, so i had to climb out the passenger side. Suprisngly the car still ran (thats cadillac for ya! ) The speed limit on that road is 45 and people do aroudn 50, the Ranger slowed down, but was still traveling pretty fast if that gives you any idea how fast this was."

Crazy thing was....that white taurus with the lady had leik 4 kids in it too. If my car had not have been in the middle, who knows what could have happened. God works in strange ways.

Car was totalled and I now have my CTS. Here are the pics! Enjoy!

Lady in a half ton truck tried to make a u-turn in front of me, I had less than 10 feet to stop. She got cited for wreckless driving and her insurance is paying all and medical bills (nothing serious, least I don't think, lower back hurt bad, getting x-rays tommorow).

The story:
Feb 14, 2006. Going around a right turn (going from north to east) I hit the brakes and they're real stiff. I don't get any braking power at all, and slide out and hit a median and a Mazda 3 that was in the left turn lane (she was going to be turning from west to south.) This crunched her car pretty bad, it still drove because the impact was between the axles, but it was kinda bananna shaped. The median hit my subframe and crushed it upward, and knocked a chunk out of my oil pan. Turns out a 2 liter of soda had rolled from beside my seat to under my brake pedal. I half assed fixed it with some JB weld, but I have the car torn apart now and am replacing the subframe, oil pan, fender, bumper cover, and headlight & turn signal assembly.

Dammit Caddy Man, that collision must have been a scrotum-shrivelin', liver-quiverin', sphincter-puckerin' experience for you!

Thank the Big Guy for your health and the placement of your Caddy between the lady with the children and the numbnuts with the Ranger - those kids would now be playing harps if you hadn't been there.

CadillacETC - The CTS and DTS are very differnt vehicles. Anytime I would give freinds a ride in the DTS I would always hear how comfortable it is, and how spacious it is. When I got my CTS it felt like a go kart in comparison. Especially because I have the sport package. Both cars have thier good points and negative points.

Hitmoney - sorry bro! Its funny...the 2000-2005 DTS design is one of my favorite designs ever. Anytime I see one, I cant help but say Damnnnnnn,

Frost - Hellz Yeah! You can never imagine the force until youve been here. Man that collision just ROCKED me. I mean just the amount of force was insane. I can even describe it. I was like a rag doll inside.

I was just thinking the same thing. This is depressing me.

From 1979-1981 I spent the summers touring about five very large junkyards within 20 miles of my house. I was looking for a tailgate for my '64 Ranchero, but it turned out mine was already in better shape than the five tailgates I found.

Anyway, I was amazed at how many totaled cars I saw, and how many of them still had personal effects in the trunk, back seat, etc.
Occasionally you'd find a newspaper, so you could pinpoint the date. Some had been in the yard for over ten years. Might still be there.

Some of the cars had shoes on the floor. My father explained to me that when you have a serious impact, your body goes stiff and your shoes pop off your feet. In many cases it was obvious that the passengers didn't live. There was a lot of blood in a couple of the cars.

I found briefcases, purses, school books, clothes, coolers with spoiled food, absolutely amazing. The owners apparently weren't around anymore to claim them, and I guess the surviving family members felt it would be too painful to do it.

I don't talk about it anymore because my wife's brother and an uncle were both killed in car accidents.

Heres the cut and paste from my wreck back in March:

Thats right everyone, Im typing on my bros laptop with my leg in a cast!! I was driving (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/#) down the freeway at about 65 or 70. I just got on and looked up to see a cone that had blown out into the road. Like a dumbass I swerved a little two hard and the car (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/#) did a 180. I thought it would stop on the shoulder but it kept going and flipped twice on the embankment. Im okay but I did break my left leg. I WAS NOT WEARING A SEATBELT!!! I feal very fortunate for everything. When the car came to a stop I called 911 and calmly told them what happened. I then went to stand up and realized my leg was broken. So, I hopped away from the car to have a smoke. I got the full service from the city of West Des Moines- 2 cop cars (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/#), a fire truck (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/#) and the full service ambulance. The firefighters told me to get my smoke out properly- they had just came from a grass fire, LOL! When the cops and medics arrived I was just sittin in the grass havin a smoke! They put me on the stretcher with the neck brace and everything! I have my wonderful lady, who Im madly in love with, here to take care of me. I also got a bottle of Vicos! My bro is also helping care for me also. The CTS is most likely totaled. Im hopin so because then Ill get an 04 instead maybe!! MUHAHAHAHA. My bro is gonna take pics soon so once he does Ill post em.

Heres the pics:

http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b230/nickc50310/Picture007.jpg


Most people dont beleive that CTS was in a roll over- let alone at 60 to 70 mph. I guarantee it was- I was in the SOB! LOL! I really have quite alot of admiration for my old CTS. It saved my life- plain and simple. Having a roll over at that speed with no seat-belt is a hair raising experience to say the least! It was totalled and thats why I now have my 04 (white one was an 03). I think the main reason it was totalled was because the engine continued to run during the roll-over. Apparently running an engine upside down is bad??!! LOL :thepan:

After having it for less than 2 months my STS got smacked up the other night. My mother was driving it and had one of two options.. hit a Police car head on (Came into her lane, no lights on) or kiss a curb.

She went for the curb. 2 tires, 2 wheels and god knows what rear suspnsion damage... I'll get pics in the next day or so. Nothing I can't fix.. well, I have been meaning to put it on my lift to look under it... I think that nobody else is going to be driving it for a while..

In many cases it was obvious that the passengers didn't live. There was a lot of blood in a couple of the cars.

Reminds me of the 92 Eldo I got my fender and drivers side window from at U-Pull-It. It had "biohazard" written on the windshield... I guess they cleaned it before it was totalled and sent to the yard, but I still put on a pair of nitrile gloves before I touched the thing (I brought them to avoid any chance of gear oil getting on my hands when I pulled an 8.8" rear later that day.)
