Here is a story about my son and how it isn’t his fault…
Car accident 1~ Just turned 16 got his license and wanted to go to get some food at a fast food place… His friend drove his own car and my son followed behind him.
God only knows why they didn’t drive together. I guess being a new driver and all they both wanted to drive.
His friend slammed on his breaks and my son tried to change lanes while trying to avoid an accident. Nope took his friends back tail light out…$350 in damages. My sons comment was "it wasn’t his fault cuz his friend slammed on his breaks without any warning”…oh ok… (Insert eye roll please)
Car accident 2~ This wasn’t an accident per say. My son proceeded to pullout of the driveway and turned to soon and clipped our van’s bumper that was parked on the street next to the drive way (Which by the way is ALWAYS parked there). He clipped the back tail light of his car and put a nice scrap on our front bumper. He said that it wasn’t his fault! “Because dad parked to close to the driveway”….oh ok…. (Insert eye roll and a heavy sigh). Oh and this happened like a month ago.
Car accident 3~ He was working at a busy outdoor mall and wanted to get a sandwich across the street at anther outdoor mall but needed to cross a very busy 6 lane street that went between the two malls.
So he waited for a while to get across. The car that was going to turn into the mall he was coming out from wave for him to go across. He proceeded to go across, stopped in front of her to make sure there weren’t any cars coming.
When he looked he only saw stopped cars waiting to get into the mall that he was exiting. So he started to go and… Boom… Yep... you guessed it...
She came out from nowhere.
He never saw her. His bumper from the license plate to the left side of his bumper broke off.
Her car spun around and broke her back axle.
Can you guess what he said?...
He said it... It wasn’t totally his fault. She should have tried to avoid being hit….OMFG!!!
It is your fault!
You hit her or snagged her bumper but never the less you shouldn’t have gone out that way.
We told him in the future to exit by a light where you can safely turn in to a parking lot.
He finally took all of the credit for this accident and will once again be paying for his accident.
He is very lucky we have excellent insurance with accident forgiveness. So our insurance will NOT go up.. Thank God!! Oh and this one happened right before Christmas... Great timing right?
No body was hurt in any of these accidents! Only my sons bank account.
