What happened:

Wife was returning from bringing the kids to school. Pulled into an intersection after stopping. She went to enter crossing road and a teen driver facing opposite direction at the stop sign went just after she did. She was first at the stop. No witnesses so police report says no-one at fault.

So...flat bed coming to take her in later...jeep, not the wife.

You can see in the tire photo...something lodged in the rim. That is part of the Nissan pickup.

Im sorry for you loss and am glad everyone is ok, but that has got to be the funniest thing I have ever heard.

Teen drivers... how ridiculous how most are inexperienced. That's a bummer the 'police' says it's no-fault. I hope your wife is okay... that's really the primary concern. The XK can be repair... doesn't look too bad. I take it you're covering the repairs via full coverage?

look closely at the suspension/steering photos....rods totally sheared apart. Yikes.

And this was a low speed hit. Both from dead stops with total distance travel of about 15 feet.

So far....ins adjuster says just over $6000. I say it'll be more once Jeep gets a good look at it....the Jeep place has a collision dept. and they are VERY happy to get some work. haha...they've been slow and 'bored' according to them.

Woow, you've already gotten estimates by the adjuster, or is the XK at the collision center already? Yeah, I agree, the estimates will always go higher. Hopefully they don't 'total' it. If they do thou, aiming to get an 09 model to replace her...not the wife btw!!!!

That sucks! Good thing your kids weren't with her. I drive through 4 school areas on my way to work and have to deal with teenage drivers everyday... So sorry to hear and see this
