WOW I can't believe I forgot to put this in the blog last week, but I'm going to write about it now. James and I were driving down Manchester Avenue last week (Thursday afternoon) and we stopped behind this huge 18-wheeler that had stopped in front of us to try to turn left onto Taylor Avenue. We sat there for about 5 seconds and then....WHAM!!!.....we got rear ended by this huge Dodge Durango. It cracked our bumper right through, and we had to pull over and deal with it for like 2 hours. We called the police to get a police report taken and it took the policeman about an hour to show up, so we just had to sit there and wait. Fortunately the guy who hit us also pulled over rather than running away.
Finally, the policeman came to take down the report, and we were able to go home. It's going to be a pain to get this all taken care of, though. There's no Toyota body shop in the ENTIRE city of St. Louis, and we have to take the car to a shop about 45 minutes away. (Have I mentioned that I HATE St. Louis???) I'll try to take it this afternoon for an estimate and see how much it costs to get it fixed...then I'll have to get the money from the guy who hit us...then I'll have to take the car BACK to get it fixed....sigh. We'll see what happens.
