Went out to lunch today like we do most days. After wards, we needed to go buy electrical supplies. My coworker Bill was driving. As we pull into Home Depot’s lot, I tell Bill to watch for a semi-truck cutting into our lane. He has to stand on the brakes and then a guy in a Mercedes hits us hard in the rear.
No one was hurt really. I feel a bit sore and the coworker in the back seat has a small knot on his head.
The bummer is Bill’s car is probably totaled. The rear bumper support was pushed in about 2 inches. The trunk lid is buckled and the quarter panel is warped. So he had a perfectly good used Camry with 71,000 miles. Paid for. Owned by first his mother and then him. Now he will have to decide on getting car payments or take his chances with a used car.
