    Bad traffic accident

    I was going 70 mph on the highway and somebody rear ended me! I was shook up but otherwise am OK. But that guy must have been going 90 mph to hit me so hard. It happened so fast I didn't get the other cars description Indiana does not have license plates in front so no help there

    Got my insurance check within a week (We're with Allstate) bought a new car. We are making payment on the new car, the old one was paid off and was still in great shape so this is hard but we just paid off the house so we have some extra funds

    Glad you were not seriously injured - at those speeds it could have been so much worse! Thank goodness Allstate paid you so quickly. It's a tough thing to have to make payments on the new vehicle, especially since you had a good working and paid car already. But again - thank goodness you are okay!
    Be Happy Now.

    Wait! WHAT?? He hit you and LEFT??!! WTH!?

    You should get a dash cam! I've been seriously thinking about getting one in the front of the car, and the back. (Yesterday I witnessed a 'fender bender', and the one guy took off. The car that got hit took off after him....so I followed them in case someone decided to call cop, and needed to say what happened. After I saw them just sitting at a signal light not doing anyything, I figured they didn't care...so I went on my way.)

    He had to have been drunk or something. How do you just come up on someone and not see them, and hit them?

    Anyhow...glad you're ok!

    He probably was either drunk, or high or revoked

    Yes, Thank God you are OK, people have probably said you can replace a thing not a person and they are so right.
    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.
