Looking at these pics I can see why the airbags did not go off, it's mostly hood & upper damage, the airbag sensors are in the bumper itself & the lower numper isn't very bad.
Lucky you walked away from this.
Yeah, it submarined. It was really, really bad. I've been in auto accidents in other peoples cars before and this impact was probably the most violent since the car pretty much went from 55 or so to almost 0 faster than any human should!!
We looked at the car this morning. Sawed the hood off and ****.
I think it's going to be totaled, which is just terrible considering I just invested about 5K or so into the car. The engine is shifted about 2 inches back and an inch or so to the left. Maybe more to the left. Not too sure since I was a bit too pissed to really look.
Anyways, I've been in and out all day and haven't had a chance to thank everyone for the kind words and best wishes. Means a lot to me. The pain has gotten increasingly worse and I couldn't even get out of a chair without help around 11pm or so at my friend's house. It's mainly just muscle tense and stuff, but it really, really sucks. I'm a bit shocked I didn't break anything since the actual impact was so violent. Gotta count my lucky side and give a big thanks to God for that.
Anyways, if you guys all could, just hope for me that the car isn't totaled. I'd be pretty devistated. I'm hoping the pain starts going away in a few days. Pretty bruised up on my chest and stuff. Not fun.
I've been taking Alieve since Advil failed miserably and the Alieve, so far, has failed miserably, too.

If they do total it out, you should try and get any easily salvageable parts to either sell or keep. When I totalled my truck I had quite a bit invested into it as well, but was able to get the things such as stereo, tv screens, subs, amps etc etc. I even took my rims off and swapped em for some junker rims, because the junkyard wouldnt take the truck with no wheels. Its a ****** thing I know, but at least get some of your investment back. Looks like you had rims on it, dont think theyre stock.
Hope you start feeling better as well, Purcs and Darvosets do the job very very well.
Wow, judging by the pictures your lucky you left that accident with only minor injuries. My suggestion to you is as soon as whatever minor injuries you have are healed, to get back behind the wheel immediately. From first hand experience, that is definitely the best way to go about.
Anyway, glad to hear your ok and I hope you get 100% soon.
