Sorry to hear that this happened, whats most important is that you walked away safely.

By the way, what are you holding in your hand in the first pic?

I wouldn't be able to eat is that happened to me. Good thing you're OK. Material things are replaceable. You live to see another day.

wow... wtf were you doing? You should keep DSC on next time. I've been in the rain at speeds above 65mph and snow above 40mph. So rain isn't the worst thing for our cars, I believe this is driver error. Also why would you opt for less than full coverage on your car. FAIL

Gotta love those Virginia drivers...

dude, he said that DSC was on. he said he never turns it off.

i think that i saw this accident today. i was coming back on chain bridge rd earlier. the weather was insane! i am glad you are okay. no full coverage??? your only chance is to auction it as a salvaged car. i hope you're kidding about insurance.

no full coverage? Ouch. You can start by parting the car out. dibs on the rear wheels + tires.
