Lady in front of me was coasting, didn't hit the brake until she was almost to her turn, NO TURN SIGNAL, came to an almost complete stop in the street, as a car was trying to exit out of that parking lot. I almost hit her, but stopped in time.  Second car leaves, she turns in, I start to accelerate, then get smacked from behind, all in the space of a couple seconds.  Truck that hit me was a commercial pickup carrying a lot of springs (what he said, I never saw them), had more momentum, couldn't stop in time.  Got a banged-up back hatch on my Traverse, bumper took a hit, and my exhaust pipe is crumpled some.  No broken glass, all tail lights work.  Tag got ripped off in the collision; I have it in my passenger seat.  Going to try and get it reattached tomorrow morning.  Might have to see about getting it replaced; that tag is pretty mangled.

Other guy's work insurance is taking care of it.  I even get a rental on their nickel.  At least I can still open/shut my back hatch.  No airbags deployed, and most importantly, NO INJURIES!

Glad everyone is ok.  Still a bummer.

Sorry to hear that Allen - hope you don't have to do battle with truckers insurance.
Those who would give up constitutional freedoms to elected officials in exchange for a false sense of security, deserve neither freedom or security.

It's Allstate, same company we have.  Taking it tomorrow to get looked at, figure what we need to do to get it repaired.

Ok, the tally is, almost $3K in damages that they can see.  They won't know more until they get inside and start replacing stuff.  They will have my vehicle for a minimum of 9 days, possibly longer.
