    First you say it, then you do it.

    The picture doesnt show that half a block north is a light with a freeway on/off ramp for I20, and major road construction at the Interstate for an addition to a mall located about a half mile north west of the Fryes. A very busy area right now that wont be getting any better.
    Yea, thats me. Its not an addition to the mall, and actually, the Parks is quite pissed about it. So far we have stolen 6 of their top 10 performers(non-department stores). Yea, that whole area is a nightmare. Arlington needs to step up and make Matlock three lanes from Pioneer Parkway down to Sublett, or even into Mansfield.

    Steve, did the bags deploy? If they did, its about 90% sure it will be totaled.

    No, I didn't hit head-on. I hit (as you can see) the front-driver's side corner of the Trailblazer, so not sure why the bag didn't go off. Had I been about 1/4 of a second later, it would have hit more of the bumper-center and the bags would have gone off probably.

    Ok, Farmer's Insurance has declared the accident to be 40% my fault!

    This is outrageous!

    They did this without getting the police report (it wasn't released yet - the police found that to be pretty outrageous when I called them) and without talking to any witnesses from the scene of the accident. The adjuster pulled into the Fry's parking lot last night (so she says) and claims to have struck up a conversation with someone who says they were a witness. (Does this seem fishy to anyone else? -- She claims they were the manager and saw it...)

    Anyhow, I even called the woman who pulled out in front of me. She cracked her sternum by the way. She even said that it was her fault for pulling out in front of me.

    Why is Farmers Insurance behaving in this fashion?

    I ran into a woman named Courtney who said that the exact same thing happened to her. She was the person pulling into Fry's though. Her insurance company paid 100% of the damaged to the other person's property becuase they said that it was a legal lane to travel in.

    Here are a couple more shots of the scene of the accident.


    Here is the car that pulled out in front of me. Notice where the damage is? I hit the very front of her car because I was going forward in my lane and hit her as she popped her nose out.


    Looking south on Matlock. You can see the lane that I was driving in (where the Wrecker is) and where her car stopped at. How can they say that's not a lane? It's totally beyond me! I'm furious at Farmers Insurance!
