PAUL T Posted April 3, 2005 Report Share Posted April 3, 2005 First off, no one was hurt. I was backing out of my parking spot at the local Kroger store this morning, it was the kind of spaces where you are nose to nose with the car parked in front of you, and after I backed out I noticed this S10 pickup coming toward me. At first I thought someone was just pulling through the parking space then I noticed no one was driving. Well, I tried to get out of his way but it caught my back passenger side fender just behind the back door. After it hit me it rolled across the lot striking and hit the lot shopping cart holder finally coming to a stop and just missing the cars parked on either side of cart holder. Well after taking the license number and the name off the front plate I had to go in and have the person paged. Kroger was interested in him also due to the damage to the cart holder. It turned out to be a kid about 16 or 17 that had 2 wrecks previous that was still on his parents insurance. The truck, which was a standard, evidently came out of gear and was either resting on my front bumper or came out of gear about the time I backed out. I guess I find out the extent of damage this week when I take it to the body shop. The fender was crushed in and just barely off the rear wheel so it is drivable. I sort of felt sorry for the kid but live and learn. Maybe he will set the emergency brake from now on. After exchanging information and filling out a police report we both went our separate ways. My wife works for a State Farm agent so she will start the process Monday. What a bummer! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
