So there I was driving down this street with my left hand flasher on. I slowed down at the corner because there was another driver at the intersection, at the cross street. Quick glance in my rear view mirror and I began to make my left turn. WHAT THE HELL. A ginormous gold SUV appears out of nowhere on my left and tires screaming, smell of rubber and whup he hits me. Sideswiped. He takes off down the street. I continue to chug around the corner. Shaking from head to foot. I can't get my drivers door open. I climbed out of the bucket seat and over the console to get out the passenger door. A man stopped and asked if I was OK. My left hand was burning sore, I don't know what I did to it. I reversed the process to climb back in when buddy in the SUV came back. Out I get again. His behemoth is fine. Nothing but a black plastic mark from my side mirror. I am the one with the broken light, hub cap and dinged side panel. I am so shook up I forget to get his info. After all he says he will meet me at the Police Collision Reporting Centre. He never showed up. More fool me. I am waiting to hear from the insurance adjuster, my insurance wants me to see a Dr. I am waiting for them to call back. My hand hurts. I was in an area of the city that I am not familiar with. Got stuck turning left to avoid traffic. Turns out I was on a one way street. "cringe" at least I was going the right way. My head aches from the stress.
"Left turn" wouldn't matter where I was, I will be held at fault. Not happy today in the extreme.
Have put kettle on for tea. Tea fixes everything...well almost
edit: I just found out that my insurance rating went from a 9 star to a 5 star and my rates next year will be at least doubled maybe more. I feel sick. Thirty Years with a clean driving record doesn't mean a thing. I am just lucky they didn't cancel me! I also heard that the other driver went and reported in.
