How many accidents have you been in?

I am talking car accidents. Where they your fault or someone else's?

  • Just one...another driver ran a stop sign and ran in to me. Thankfully no one was hurt badly (she had her kids in the car, too).

  • 8-
    2 of them I was just a passenger,
    1 of them was my fault when I first got my license.
    1 was my fault when I accidentally rear ended someone...luckily not much damage
    1 was a hit and run, I was in high school, but actually caught the guy 2 weeks later
    1 I was hit by a driver who was driving illegally in a bus lane
    1 I was run off a 2 lane road and rolled my car with all 3 kids in it, no one was hurt
    1 I was hit by a teen driver who just got their license!!!

    Needless to say, I don't enjoy driving, and I'm not a good passenger either!!

  • one
    My so called friend pulled out onto a divided highway and STOPPED because she accidentally went thru the stop sign a few feet back. We were right in the path of cars going 50! I screamed at her to go,but she just stared at me and sat there. A car hit us going at least 45. The cars' engine folded up right into the passenger compartment. My neck got seriously messed up in that accident. She of course didn't get a scratch on her. 16 years later and I still can't move my head all the way to the left.

  • 5 - none of them my fault.

    1 - as a kid, my mom was rearended by an idiot in a parking lot
    2 - my ex got rearended at a stop light by a little old lady who didn't realise the light was red
    3 - a guy turned in front of us, panicked and turned back into oncoming traffic and hit the passenger side. I was 7 1/2 months pregnant
    4 - I had just gotten my driver's license and a guy turned wide around a bend in the road and scraped the side of his car across my bumper. he tried to say I hit him, but I was at a dead stop at a stop sign, behind the line. He also attempted to defraud my insurance company by submitting the info on a similar, but more damaged vehicle and when they denied his claim for fraud, he called the DMV and told them I was driving w/o insurance and got into an accident, and tried to get my license suspended. (It didn't work, I reported his fraud to the DMV.)
    5 - a woman backed into the side of my car in a lot

  • 4 - passenger in a rear-ending, driver in a rear-ending, driver in a t-bone (I wasn't cited but cops said it was my fault), and now I totally brain-farted the 4th...
