I think my car is totaled

March 24th, 2017 at 11:50 pm

My daughter and I were in an accident today. We were miraculously uninjured despite being clipped at 60 mph and going into the concrete median. All airbags on the drivers side were deployed. I think my car is totaled and I feel bad about it.

It's a 2010 Kia Sedona with 95,000 miles. I don't have any additional pics to show damage to side and front. But some of the missing car parts were still in the road.

Good news is we were hit by a swerving car that I tried to outrun before being hit. So people were behind her giving us enough space to not be pummeled. People were very kind and an Amtrak conductor on his way to union stopped traffic and we were able to get to the shoulder. Another woman stayed with us until my husband and state trooper got there.

My daughter's friend family was in a taxi on their way and picked my daughter up on the shoulder of the highway (she's off to Cancun). We were lucky. It could have been worse.

    How long is she gone? She should get checked out. My son totaled his car this week too. He was fine, but now is having headaches a few days later. We were told he had to be looked at within 14 days for it to be covered. I am glad you guys are okay. I hope the claims process goes smoothly. I was lucky and had a check within 24 hours!

    The circumstances sound horrific. Amazing you both escaped injury and able to drive safely to the shoulder. I profusely thank your Kia with 95K miles for protecting you both as they are not generally beloved vehicles. Please keep us in the loop as we're all worried about after effects. Amazed that DD was able to continue with her plan to fly to Cancun as though nothing extraordinary had happened. Many prayers expressing thankfulness.
