Daughter's first accident

My 16yr. old daughter was driving my TJ to school yesterday, she came to a stop at a red light behind a Toyota RAV4. Apparently she reached for something in the Jeep, and her foot slipped off the brake, allowing the Jeep to kinda lurch forward (it's an auto) and rear end the RAV4. Damage to the Toyota included a cracked hard plastic tire cover, part of the rear hatch pushed in, & plates ripped off. Damage to Jeep: slightly bent "Jeep" plate on front bumper.

Advantage: Jeep.

Hah....you made recall the night I was getting on the freeway in my Expedition, the gal in the RAV4 stopped on the freeway to show her kids a deer I came around the turn and WHAM. I pushed that spare tire all the way up to the back of the front seats. Good thing her kids were in car seats.....Too bad she didn't have any insurance. Needless to say her car was junk.

Your jeep repair costs = maybe $20.00 if you even replace it.

Hope your daugther isn't too shaken over it.

I whacked a deer goin 45, busted radiator and grill. bumper was bent in a little bit and my front fenders were messed up pretty good, but full coverage is nice especially when you know the body guy! I made profit on that.

Glad to hear nobody was hurt...I hope you gave her an ass ripping about maintaining the proper distance between her and the vehicle in front of her once you were sure she was okay. lol

Nothing bothers me more than when people roll right up on my bumper at a stoplight...

How much did you charge the Toyota driver for the improvements?
