My supra hit by drunk driver!

Whilst parked at the side of the road last night my car was hit by a drunk driver. He collided with the back and pushed it into the car in front. Fortunately I wasn't in the car at the time but I am gutted! Police arrested him and got all his details so fingers crossed it should be a straight forward claim.

Sorry to hear man, hope its straight forward, and its back up and running soon. Might even be a blessing in disguise, to do the body kit and kawaski green. ;)

Gutted!
That back wheel looks at a less than desirable angle.
Hope you get it sorted though bud and hopefully they give the dickhead responsible a harsher sentence for hitting a Supra!

Sorry to hear this fella, I suppose one consolation is that nobody got hurt, although it would server the drunken twat right, hope the insurance claim goes OK, but that rear wheel look decidedly dodgy, he must of hit it a some speed.

Lol was driving an Audi A4. Must of being going a rate. The car in front of mine was pushed back about 12 foot from mine hiting it. Good news is he was insured. Time to do battle!

From what I understand they'll pay the third party only. So pay me but not him?

Yes, thats generally how it goes.. He will have invalidated his own fully comp cover by driving drunk. But the cover for 3rd parties is there regardless of that for exactly this reason. to cover the innocent chaps that get the shitty end of the stick when someone does something stupid.

And yeh, I didnt want to suggest it, but it's likely they'll write it off will you buy it back and keep it going or just take the payout and find a ncie new one?? Maybe import a super clean one from jap land?

I'm going to try and buy it back. Might split for parts or sell to a breaker. Just have to see what happens.

Really sorry to hear about this Ben,

I know how happy you were when we insured the supra for you.

The insurers will deal with the claim, but if you need any further assistance then I am hear to help.

All the best
