My Civic Accident! (Pics, Not 56K friendly!)

Well it happened on the March 21st... Basically what happened was there was the Blue Mazda truck in front of me, and he was stopping for someone that was making a right turn into the apartments. (BTW, this was on the right lane) The Mazda was was fully stopped, and I came up behind him. I fully stopped. Seconds after, there was Black Civic coming up behind me. The driver of the Black Civic, she did a lane change into the left lane, but at the same time gets rear-ended by a women in a Red Subaru. After, the Black Civic rear-ends me, and I rear-ended the Mazda Truck. So I basically got sandwiched! After I rear-ended the Truck, the Black Civic ended up beside me! I'm pretty sure that's what happened... Either that, or the Black Civic rear-ended me first and the Red Subaru rear-ended the Black Civic. I actually don't know exactly.

Well here's the result: (Good thing I had my camera phone!)






I was able to get some pics of my car at the collision shop... So sad to see it!:

Re: My Civic Accident! (Pics, Not 56K friendly!)

I need to wait until later to find out the estimate in damage.

From what I can tell, the damage to my front includes:

Cracked front Bumper
Black Grill
Driver's side headlight with HID bulb
Carbon Fiber Hood with Hood Hinges
Radiator Support got bent
Radiator got pushed back, but doesn't look cracked and leaking...
Driver's Side Fender

The damage to the rear from what I can tell:

Crushed Trunk Door
Crushed Trunk and the Hinge got pushed back
Cracked Rear Bumper
Crushed Quarter Panel
Damage Left Tailight

I'm not sure if the frames bent...

What do you guys think? Is it going to be a write off? I'm actually wanting it to be seeing how bad it is... Looks so bad that I don't want it bad anymore!

Re: My Civic Accident! (Pics, Not 56K friendly!)

Well at least you are fine. Cars can be fixed - though in this case I wouldn't. With that rear end damage, I'd make my insurance write it off.

No, the airbags didn't go off... My front was too low I guess and it didn't hit the rebar, so it hit under the truck's bumper...

I don't know about the back... I guess the airbag system know when to go off or not... Get rear-ended in this case won't make it go off I suppose...

Either that, or maybe the RSX steering wheel that I put in my car has a faulty airbag system... But the SRS light doesn't show up, so I'm assuming it's fine...

Haha, my neck is a little sore! Same with my lower back and left shoulder! I already missed 2 days of work so far! I tried working, but my back and left shoulder started to stiffen up, so I went home after an hour... (I'm standing most of the time during my job)

I already went to see my doctor, and I'm getting physiotherapy... I have another appointment to see my doctor again on friday. So I'm going to tell him that I missed work and I want to claim injuries! Then I'll file it with my insurance company...

Re: My Civic Accident! (Pics, Not 56K friendly!)

to be honest, thats a "total lost" bro.....u better start stripping ur car before insurance is gonna take it.

ur side panel alone is gonna be 1k
and ur rear looks pretty bent...and thats gonna be alot to rebend it and it could have even damaged the gas tank and suspension....

and ur front, im not gonna even go there...


if u get it fix, its never gonna drive the same...so i suggest u not try n fix it and get another car if u can.

Re: My Civic Accident! (Pics, Not 56K friendly!)

im sure this is probably gonnna be total lost because i just totalled my 2002 accord a few months ago.

all that happened was a messed up front...and it was considered total lost.

Re: My Civic Accident! (Pics, Not 56K friendly!)

What kind of phone are you working with? Those are some sick pictures. Glad you are ok though, that looked like a pretty good hit. I thought you just hit the front but then I got farther down to the rear shots. DANG! Im surprised that your hood is in the shape that it is.

Hope you feel better though. You can fix a car easier than you can fix your spine!

Take care!

Re: My Civic Accident! (Pics, Not 56K friendly!)

once the damage is structural, and it looks as serious as that I wouldn't bother. It's like trying to straighten out a crushed soda can. Your car wouldn't drive the same, try to get it written off.
The crumple zones have done their job, so if the car was repaired and you were in another accident they wouldn't be as effective.

I'm really glad to hear that you went to the doctor. Some people don't take car accidents seriously, even if they're minor and it seems like you have no injuries. I got into an accident a year ago where I was rear ended by someone doing 45 while I was at a dead stop and I have back problems now all thanks to it and not getting treated right away. I went to the emergency room that night and they recommended I seek further treatment, I didn't, woke up in the middle of the night 2 days later feeling like my ribs were cutting at my organs and I couldn't breathe and started to almost puke from the pain. I went to the chiropractor that my mother works at the next day and got x-rays only to find out that I had all kinds of problems in my lower back (and that I had an extra vertebrae which was an interesting discovery, haha).

and I'd say that thing is totalled. sell the good parts on here!

Re: My Civic Accident! (Pics, Not 56K friendly!)

does look like a total loss, my 05 civic just got totaled about a month ago and the damage was no where near that extensive, the amount i got on the estimate racked up over $12,000, you can see my car pics on the crash thread. i had them title it a total loss and i got $15,993.57 back for it, which isnt so bad since i paid about $15,200 for the car to begin with, go figure . if i were you id go and try to take out as many aftermarket parts as you can and put the stock back on, was such a hassle just to get my rims and intake back. anyways, good luck

Re: My Civic Accident! (Pics, Not 56K friendly!)

Damn man, that sucks. I would say totalled. Some lady rear-ended me pretty good last week and destroyed my bumper, bent something underneath(not the frame) and buckled the left rear quarter-panel (no taillight or trunk damage) and the cost to repair/paint was $2025. The damage on your car is easily gonna be 3-4 times that, especially with frame damage. Make sure you make the persons insurance pay for a rental car, just whatever you do, dont let them give you a dodge ram 1500 4 door extended cab.....its not a lot of fun after being used to driving a civic
