    Well the first accident happened on my tacoma :( I was driving in town at night going to my fire dept drill when a truck turns around in a parking lot and pulls out right as im passing them, so i pin it and swerve around them. I heard it hit so i proceed to pull over. the guy then goes around me and floors it. My dad is a police dispatcher in this town so i gun it and catch up to him why my dad is calling the police. after about 2 miles, he pulls over on a very dark back road. after confronting him, we find out he is a nice guy, around 65 and went to school with my grandpa. the police came, took an accident report, and the guy said that we do not have to go through insurance and he would pay for the damage himself. I didnt get hit too hard, just minor scratches in my right rear side panel, little dents, and scratches on my bumper. oh and my bumper got knocked out about a quarter of an inch. The good part is, he said do what i need to do, and hell give me a check for the works. I got an estimate today of 1600$ :eek: but i think i might get an allpro rear bumper with the side panels and that would cover the scratch so it wouldnt have to be completely painted.

    I have a bad picture, but it gives you the idea. and plus, I may be getting a new steel bumper :D ohh and turns out this guys LOADEDDDDD :D

    It could have been worst though.
