    Default Truck got hurt today.

    So I was taking my daughter Rachel to school today as usual and I pull up behind a new Chevy Cruze at the stop sign that connects my development with PA 16. I'm only stopped for a few seconds when the woman decides to back up to give a dump truck room to turn onto our road. I laid on the horn and look in my mirror and I have cars behind me so I can't back up, and she keeps on coming and smacks into my front bumper.

    Naturally I get out and say WTF! Now we exchange info, no police called because nowadays they won't even come if no one is hurt, they just tell you to exchange info and move on. So I call her insurance, give my statement and the claims lady says, " my client states that her car was in park at the time of impact so we aren't paying".

    So I say WTF again and call my insurance only to find out that she has filed a claim against me! I don't have witnesses, so my insurance is going to be stuck with the bill, I have accident forgiveness so a rate increase shouldn't be an issue, it just amazes me that people can be so dishonest, or I guess I really should expect no less these days.

    Damage is minimal, I guess, in my mind any damage is bad. I think the SS cover is going to be ok but the metal bumper and bracketry is going to need replacement. The paint looks undamaged but the left side of the bumper is pushed back about 2".

    Undamaged passenger side.

    Driver side damage.

    Sucks, but yes people seem to be taking lieing to new heights, I dont think theres many honest people left out there.
    I wonder what she was doing sitting at what sounds like a busy intersection in park?

    "Jerry are you up a pole again?
    I miss you Jessica.
    Jerry are you crying?
    No I bit my tounge."

    I don't know how they can sleep at night. I believe she will have to pay for her dishonesty in some way, something will come back on her and bite her in the a$$. I did make a mistake in the original post though it, should have said her car was in drive at the time of impact.
    And on another note her insurance company is Nationwide....they are definitely "on her side"!

    That sucks Adam. I am sure there is nothing you can do because it is their word vs. yours. Just hope that one day they will get payback 10 fold.

    There are times when I, at least, wish axe handle justice can be successfully applied. Howsomever, that not being the correct way to deal with situations, take comfort in knowing that goes around, comes around...!

    You might want to see if the dump truck can be tracked down. That might help a little bit.
