just had a car accident
Hope it's nothing to serious.
well no one died. but when you have no money, any accident is serious. even though i have insurance...i dunno, iv never crashed. i dunno how insurance works at this stage
also fairly sure it wasnt my fault, i was changing lanes, checked behind etc, saw there was room, looked forward again then smash. he must have been accelerating. he mentioned he was looking at the side of the road for that split second
Unfortunately any collision where you hit someone in front of you is your fault (generally anyway). You are supposed to give enough room to the person in front to allow for things like them slamming on their brakes, sudden stops etc.
Ring up your insurance company and tell them what happened, and you may have to report it to the police (just go in and say, had a car accident and they will take a report). IIRC if it's over a certain amount of damage, they need a you to report it. I would call them up and ask just to be sure.
