Well guys, **** happens I suppose...my 2003 Nissan 350Z is no more. A few F-chatters know by now, so i figured I would post of an explanation so concerned individuals would know the exact details. I was driving back to Savannah from New Orleans on I-10 last night. It was raining a bit (not very hard) and it was after dark. At exit #199 (Tallahassee) some jerk got on the interstate and then immeditately swerved across both lanes, got right in front of me, and then hit his brakes. I began to hit mine as well, and immediately felt my car lift as I started to hydroplane. The car seemed to gain speed as it sailed across the other two lanes. I hydroplaned across two lanes and and counter-steered a bit, but impact was inevitable and I wanted it to be at the front of the car since there's more stuff there to protect me. I turned the wheel back a bit, flexed my arms so they wouldn't be locked, and shut my eyes. I impacted the guard rail at about 65 or 70MPH. I opened my eyes. Both front airbags deployed. None of the curtains did, which seems right since the impact was straight on. My head never touched the airbag -- my seatbelt completely restrained me. The chemicals from the airbags hurt my eyes so I checked my hands and feet, then opened the door and rolled out onto the pavement and took a deep breath before getting up to call 911. Turns out someone already had. A bunch of people stopped to give witness reports about the jerk who cut me off, and apprently then kept going -- completely oblivious to the mayhem unfolding behind him. I checked myself out a little further before the cops showed up; I was completely unharmed with the exception of some chemical burns caused by the airbags. A bunch of cops and EMTs and firefighters came. They cut all the battery lines to my car because it was still on and I spent a while sorting out the EMTs and police. It took 4 AAA trucks more than 2 hours to get my car unhooked from the guard rail. Apparently the car was impaled at multiple points by the guard rail. One of the cops epxlained to me that I probably shouldn't be (or was very lucky to be) alive and that if I had been going any faster than the speed limit when it happened, the car would have gone through the rail and down a 50 foot embankment. The other officer was very stern and said that if the other folks had not given witness reports he would have written me a pile of tickets. Here are the photos (links): View From Right Side (directly after accident occurred) View From Front Right (directly after accident occurred) Front Right Wheel (directly after accident occurred) Front Right (on tow truck) Front Left (on tow truck) AAA finished picking up pieces of my car a hundred or so yards down the highway and then put all of them in my car, thereby covering the interior in mud and water. Not like I'll be using it again anyhow. I got a hotel room and earlier this morning I caught a very early flight back to Savannah. I would like to thank the individuals who expressed immediate concern for my own well being -- you guys are the greatest! Hopefully everything will work out for the best. My insurance is fully comprehensive, so I'm not worried about the car much -- just my neck right now, since I have heard a lot about whiplash problems. A New Orleans club member who specializes in this kind of medicine has given me some excellent recommendations about what to do so I have most of it covered. Iw ill post an update when I am sure about the outcome of the insurance claim.
