Sherman’s Accident

I took a few more pictures of my car before it was sent to Columbia for “evaluation”. They are basically taking him to a junk yard where the damage assessment expert is. They are NOT going to get my car.



I decided the best way to explain what happened based on physical evidence from the crash site was to write up a report in an unbiased way. I found out after talking to the police officer (he would not change the accident report) and USAA, that the insurance company doesnt alway solely take the police report as final. They look at the witnesses and try to assess what happened to determine who is at fault and assign responsibility.

I felt a report will give them plenty of information to make an accurate determination of what really happened. Either way, Sherman will probably be declared a total loss due to repair cost (hell the hood alone being made out of aluminum cost $1800).
