I owe my life to my jeep

I was driving on A road and this idiotic driver was pulled off to the side of the road and decided to make a uturn right in front of me and I hit into him and everything and the jeep is totaled probably and it was bad. The other car definitely got the worse end of it. I was surprised it didn't flip the back end was hoping around.

Glad your safe. Looks likes you had minimal damage except the fender area. The frame and bumper must have taken a lot of the force. Or the other persons car they didn't look too good. Things why I hate bad drivers. Sorry for your jeep man.

Glad your safe bud, the Jeep can be repaired/replaced... you can't, as it's been said.

Nope, his frame is tweaked good. Looks like it's bent up and back to the passenger side.

I'm glad you're not hurt worse than that but resist the other guy's insurance company's attempts to sign a form saying you're ok for at least a few months. Neck and spinal injuries don't always fully manifest themselves all that quickly and sometimes a diagnosis can be nearly a year off. A driver turned in front of my wife and it was nearly a year before a spinal surgeon finally diagnosed the root cause of her symptoms (tingling, dizziness, pain) that took several months to fully develop. Neck (spinal) surgery fixed her finally but it's a good thing we had not agreed to settle with the other driver's insurance.

It is a crime for that person to wreck into such a beautiful Jeep.
