Thank God for AWD... pics inside
 
5 Attachment(s)
So I was heading to take my dad to get surgery on his knee today on the highway, had just passed a 6 car accident as well as a Truck on Truck head on collision because of the snowy blizzard like conditions and was explaining to him how this was the very reason I purchased a Legacy and the Awd advantages when in the middle lane this Dodge Ram starts sliding ass end out in to my lane and slams in to my rear passenger quarter panel. We are literally sliding sideways going 60mph and I think holy crap, please don't pin ball. I turn the steering wheel hard to the left and pump the gas a few good times and after swerving left and right a little it miraculously straightens out without going all over the place and no more casualties. The damage was done though and of course, her truck is just scratched but my car is messed up. Crappy part is I just bought my car not even 2 months ago and it was cherry. I'm glad we didn't get hurt, just shaken up pretty good. The irony of this whole story, I was watching a long compilation of car wreck videos last night on YouTube lol c'est la vie...

I was thinking that too but it's not tint. The top half of the light is gone if I'm not mistaken.

Sorry to hear about the accident but I'm glad it wasn't as bad as it could have been

Thanks man, me too, although I have to admit, I felt like a bad ass for having been able to straighten out the car after that:cool: (although it was probably all car and a little bit driver)

It's your fault for leaving the fuel door open. Obviously the guy was just trying to close it... by hitting it with his car.

I'm glad you're alright.

Your made a critical error in judgement that allowed for this accident to take place. In foul weather, AWD or not you never get beside a car. You keep your spacing both front and rear and side to side. Typically this is called staggered driving.

Had you not been so close he would have spun out, you slowed down and nothing would have happened.

Best of luck getting this resolved. Thankfully you weren't hurt!
