This is what my car looks like after it’s rear-ended on the highway

By popular request, here’s what my car looks like now after Wednesday’s car accident. I went to the tow yard today to strip it of all my stuff, including the license plates.

I don’t know what it looks like underneath, but I’m told it’s not pretty. The muffler was wrenched off when I hit the median.

No front-end damage aside from the tire that blew when I was hit — I am really glad a certain police chief, a long time ago, made me do skid school!

  1. I surprised the car didn’t look worse. You are so lucky. You did an excellent job of driving the car. Glad you’re okay.

  2. So sad… but at least you can walk around it. What a pain to be without wheels…did they catch the salad eater??

  3. Also, the trunk shot — my toolbox is on a bungee cord so it won’t move around too much (credit my husband, the engineer). The toolbox bungeed into the bag containing my emergency backup gear (shoes, coat, notebooks, etc.) and the bag exploded everywhere, as you can see. The car frame looks pretty bent. It’s amazing how much those plastic panels can take in a collision.
