This was NOT my fault. I was driving down a 4 lane road, when all of a sudden an oncoming minivan spun wildly out of control, and was flying straight towards me, half sideways taking up both lanes on my side of the road. She peeled out of a big flock of traffic, so I couldn't go into the oncoming lane to avoid her. She flew out last second, no time to stop whatsoever. If I could have stopped, she would have slid into me anyways. Only choice I had was to dive into the snow bank and try to miss her that way. She came within inches of my car, but didn't hit me. Nobody got hurt, and her van was left completely unscathed. My car didn't suffer any body damage, but it bent the fuck out of my front end when I hit the snow bank. It's going to be a bitch dealing with insurance on this one.
There is enough damage, I'm sure, to total the car, since there is probably a bent framerail. The hood doesn't line up right anymore, so I'm pretty sure the whole front end is tweaked. The whole wheel is pulled back so far, I'm pretty sure it ripped the radius rod out of the crossmember. Or at least bent the shit out of the front crossmember. The control arm is toast, and the strut is bent to shit. The axle got pushed into the rear crossmember, and the wheel is bent, and the trim ring is completely mashed. I'm pretty pissed off.
The snow is no longer fun AT ALL.
