Dizzy My real world crash pictures inside.

I was going about 55-60 when a Ford Ranger pulled out infront of me. I lock up the brakes but it was to late. I hit him in the front pass side wheel. I was ok other than the my bottom teeth went through my lower lip. 11 stiches. I also had a hole in my knee 2 stiches later good as new. Today I am hurting but I'll be fine. Here are a few pictures of my car.

Looks like you are a lucky person who'll be in the market for a 2006 ION soon. Pretty serious impact for sure.

My 93 SL2 was the victim of a Ford Ranger pulling in front of it. Hope you can get your car replaced and your injuries healed quickly.

The ION did you well at such a high rate of speed. The interior picture shows how forcefully the dash was pushed into your left knee... i can't believe you only needed 2 stitches! What happened to your left rear door? It's caved in pretty good. Did you get any pics of the Ranger?

I'm sure your ION is going to be totalled, so what do you think you'll get to replace it?

I hope you have a speedy and problem free recovery!

That looks like it was a pretty fierce crash. It's sad to see an Ion go, but it's good to know that the car did it's job and you are ok. I hope that everything works out well for you, and you are back on the road soon in another Ion... Take care.

Thank you for your comments. We both spun I ended up facing the way that he was going and he ended up facing the way that I was going. The bumper and tailgate hit the rear door. He spun more than I did do to the fact I turned into the wreak. You try to tell your self to turn away from impact but you always turn into it. I don't know why the front bumper looks like I hit a pole? I do know that his wheel fell off and the lugnuts were still on the hub.
Thank you again for the comments

Good thing you are ok, it has been about 3 months sense my wreck, and my lower back still acts up sometimes, just take it easy and dont lift anything, and see a chiropractor, it helped me. My only question is did you get GAP insurance??

I got the car with 0% plus I put 1,000.00 down so I owe less than what the car is worth. The guys ins said that they would cover the car 100%. I just hope to get into a new Saturn while the discount is still going.

My 1998 SL was killed by a Ford Ranger too... Seems like some sort of conspiracy!
