Wow, hope your ok & not too sore today! The cars are in a strange position, did you hit him & spin his all the way around? How'd it actually happen?
On the brighter side, it'll make that job of flushing the radiator that much easier, LOL

Neither one of us got hurt, and I havent been sore at all.

The road runs East/West. I was traveling Westbound, he was coming Eastbound. As I approached the intersection, he attempted to turn North onto the cross street. I definitely spun him, where his car ended up is about where he was trying to get except facing the other way and a little to the left.

This is the part I'm worried about. The frame on the passenger side from the sway bar mount to the bumper is bent pretty bad. I dont know if that something that can be fixed or if I need to look at swapping the frame.

This is from straight on:




From the side:

Glad you're ok!

Be sure to put YOUR insurance agent to work on this. It's not your job to go after the other party - thats what you pay them to do

I'm hoping that it can be fixed, it would be alot less work than swapping frames.

Well since you're OK, look on the bright side. IF it can't be straightened, it's a good excuse for a frame-off job!
