girl was sitting facing my lane of traffic, she pulled out across my lane to turn onto an highway on ramp, she claimed she thought i was merging onto the ramp (i had no turn signal on, and was already past the on ramp entrance for my traffic direction) so she "turned to the on ramp, then realized i was coming straight, panicked and braked." her exact words. so she was sitting broadside in my lane 50' in front of me, i had enough time to curse, stand on the brakes and brace for impact.

Awe man... I just audibly gasped at seeing that. Sorry to see man. Hopefully there's no frame damage.

it is kinda sorta driveable... alot of the inner wheel well and things like that all got pushed back and were rubbing the front passenger tire, instead of trying to limp it 20 miles away to the body shop or worrying about whats  rubbing and if it could cut a tire, i figured it was just best to get the flatbed and haul it there.

Just wondering  It looked nasty but not undriveable nasty.  The fact that it was inner body work stopping you from driving it is a good sign over the fact if it had been suspension stopping you from driving it.

yeah for sure! i had no issues moving it around in the driveway, i just figured i would rather be safe with getting it towed. the Hawk HP+ pads did a good job of slowing the car down enough to where the impact wasn't catastrophic for the car
