Yesterday started out to be quite a promising day.  Carly had work from 10-5 while I had a group project on Campus to do from 10-1 and then I was going to donate Plasma.  The weather was absolutely perfect; for the first time in weeks, it was bright and sunny.  You didn't even have to wear a large coat outside, just a sweater!....But as things would have it...everything changed.  
About 10 minutes after having been dropped off at BYU, I got a call from Carly.  The next 7 words I heard almost gave me a heart attack: "I just got into a car accident!"  I never want to hear that phrase again...knock on wood, yeah, I know.
So anyways, Carly was physically okay, as well as the other driver(I was SO glad to hear this!). It was just a simple mistake and Carly rear ended a car.  The funny part was this...the other car has basically no damage, but ours got owned! I just don't understand how that happens with cars.  You can check out the damage below...

-The radiator and the compression pump were smashed in as well as the other physical damage you can see from the picture...
-We are still waiting to hear back from the body shop   the estimate of when it will be done and what actually was damaged internally.

-Her car only had damage to the bumper as you can see...luckily our insurance will cover all of this...a bumper for the 2010 Civic would cost around $500 from a junk yard...imagine brand new...ouch.

-At least we learned a pretty good lesson that day: It's good we had a decent insurance really saved us this time.


  1. How did things turn out? So glad Carly was O.K. Sorry I have not commented...I just remembered your URL! Sheesh!

  3. Things turned out okay. Carly and the other driver were both just fine. Insurance covered it all, and we had our car back in about 2 weeks, so it was okay. Thanks for asking!
