OH yeah, my escape eats Range Rovers for breakfast

Literally!!





The van that came flying in and smashed me while I was stopped at a red light. Was looking in the rear view like:

wow that vans flying... please don't hit me, please don't hit me, please don't hit me...POW!!!







I was surprised at all the more damage that was done to the back of my escape.





She hit me so hard that I was launched with my foot on the break about 15-25' in the the nice shiny range rover in front of me.

Here is the van that hit me.







The range rover faired out pretty good a new bumper, and back hatch should do the trick.







The van was a "SCHOOL STUDENTS" van so I immediately called 911. Everyone was ok, though wich I am very thankful. COuld have been a lot worse. A little stiff and a little soar from the jarring my body took but should be fine. I had time to sink into my seat and keep my head against the seat so I didn't get whiplash as bad.

SO last year I whacked a buck, and this year a van hit me, and my escape ate the Land rover! LOL

Thanks for the read, and again just thankful the 3 kids in the van are all ok.

On the plus side, there should be van driver position now open in the school district

Glad no one was hurt!

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

No the owners wife was the one driving the van.

Good news though my insurance is going to give me enough to cover the loan.

Decided to use this as a chance to get out of debt and picking up an 04 jeep liberty. I loved that escape man but Momma needs a new set of wheels for all the kids. I got the escape expecting 1 baby not 2 lol

What reason did the driver give for not stopping?
