I was driving out to Acura to get my battery checked out, theres a spot right around the corner for me, the road starts off as two lanes at a stoplight, the road turns and then merges into one lane, I was in the right lane, guy next to me in a new jeep takes the turn way to wide, didnt see me... I slamed on the brakes to avoid him, worked but since the roads wet, I slided right into the damn barrier... so hit the front bumper, fender and rim on the passenger side, Front bumpers gonna have to be at least repainted, some of the clips are broken, fenders creased....and the rims shaved down a bit, heres just one quick picture on the camera phone...

Big problem here is since He didnt see me, and I didnt hit him, (I had to chase him down afterwards cause he kept on going) if he decides to deny it im f**ked...

Shiate!!??....... sorry to hear it man; its tough , even after you just returned home......these types of things always seem to happen to me.....nothing really to do, its good that you chased down the guy....hopefully you didnt stangle him....i am not to sure what you can expect from him to be honest......personaly if it was me, and it was a concious decision and I saw the accident I helped cause I would help out but I am not sure what everyone else would do......

Was there speeding involved in either party......????

nah it was right after the stoplight, heres the road



I was coming from Lawrence hill rd, making the left onto w hempsted rd (25a) so the road is two lanes at the stop light, then it merges into one singular lane shortly after the turn, the guy took the turn to wide, went into my lane, and while avoiding him, I slid into the wall...Just filed a Incident report now, so I have on Document that my car has no damage on the left side, and never collided with his, so hopefully the guys honest and everything gets taken care of, but at least now I have a back up

Sorry to hear about your accident. I live on the Island, too. Had a slight fender-bender just a few months ago (as I was passing a double parked car a person in a parked car opened their door directly into my passenger side mirror destroying it and scraped some paint off front the door itself).

Went to Rallye Auto Body on 245 Glen Cove Rd. in Carle Place, NY (516-741-1800). This is the auto body repair shop for the Rallye Group of dealers--Acura, MB, Lexus and BMW. They have a wonderful modern facility there and did an excellent job of repairing my TSX. If you're looking for a reliable place, I recommend them.

Man, that really stinks! Damn Jeep drivers!

I wouldn't expect to get anything from the other dude because he'll just deny it. Lets just hope that the repair costs won't be too much. Good Luck man!

damn, sorry to hear what happened.:(

After you chased the Jeep driver did you get him to exchange information or say anything?

Damn man, that sucks! People and their damn SUV's, take turns like they are towing a trailer. If the guy denies any of it, you are screwed, hopefully he will be a decent human being. Good luck, and best wishes for a speedy recovery!

was going 25, 30 tops, just close to the wall and needed to be turning more, guy just wasnt looking... My personal guess would be about 750$-900$ repair, depending on how bad it is behind the fender, I did get forced into a Steel guard rail... I just hope the guy dosent **** me over...
