I almost killed him

Driving home from picking my oldest up from school all the sudden this little boy, probably first or second grade, came running from behind a snow bank. I hit my breaks right away but the roads are icy and I started sliding so I swerved and hit a snow bank, hard enough to dent my car. I missed the little boy by a couple feet. He waved and ran on. I sat there and cried. I am so glad I missed him! He just appearance out of no where. I was right at the intersection when I saw him. It is a miracle I didn't kill him.
Now... I am thinking I probably need to replace my car seats and fix my car, and I am pretty sure Insurance isn't going to cover it.
At least everyone is okay.

Scary!


Don't claim it if it's minimal damage. It would be considered a collision and your rates will increase.

Wow, glad everyone is ok mama! That could have been really bad! I'd think insurance will definitely cover it!

 Holy cow!!  I'm glad everyone is okay--I would have had a heart attack!!  I'm sure you felt like having one, too--again, I'm glad no one was hurt!

Wow that must have been terrifying! I'm so glad everyone is okay, though.

You don't need to replace carseats because of a dent. But your insurance should cover the repairs.
