I had never heard the term t-bone collision until I read it on the Minnesota Motor Vehicle Accident Report I’m in the process of filling out. I’m fine only vehicles were damaged.
NOT MY CAR. I found this image of T-Bone collision from google. My PT Cruiser is vanilla not silver. I don’t live in Seattle. I wasn’t t-boned by the light rail. It’s just hard to see what happened from the pictures I took.
I was on my way to work yesterday and the driver in front of me was making me nervous. He stopped at a green light then drove through a red light… I decided I didn’t want to be witness to an accident so instead of continuing on 38th Street to Lyndale, I decided to take a right on 1st Avenue, planning to then take a left on 35th.
I had a green light. There was a car stopped at the light in one of the lanes on 36th. I was going about 20 mph. I was t-boned at approximately the A. After spinning around, my car came to rest here.
This is the car that hit me and the pile of things that fell off it that the driver picked up from the intersection. I’m not sure what he was doing that he missed the light. Especially with the other car already stopped. It wasn’t a young kid. Just a guy who’s been living in New York City for a long time. The car belongs to his mother.
Hopefully I’ll find out tomorrow whether the car can be fixed and get a copy of the accident report. The woman who was stopped at the light also called in late to work and gave the most accurate description of what happened.
I don’t want to get a new car! I got this one in April 2007 to replace the this one that was totaled when I was rear ended at a stop light by a vehicle fleeing from the police. (I wasn’t hurt then either.)
