The cops said that they are going to charge him with either failing to yield to a stop sign or inattentive driving. I was thinking later on that he should atleast get careless driving. Inattentive driving is like blowing a stop sign because they were not paying attention. Careless driving is when you actually hit someone. I am going to the police dept. tomorrow morning to get the police report and to try to get him with careless driving. Dumb ass cops.

Drama Queen! Thanks for trivializing the death of a person by referring to a car. It's a car!

labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

I feel your pain.

I had an incident like that many years ago except I made an effort to stop. I had skid marks to witness my good intentions. It was an intersection without a stop sign, and I was on the right.

Because of my effort to stop, I hit him. I got the ticket. The cop said that the other driver must have got to the intersection first and it didn't matter if I was on the right side or not as long as it looked like he entered the intersection first he had the right away.

My advise is to let the cops do their job and just let it alone. No matter what, you will have more trouble moving on with life if you allow yourself to stay emotionally involved.

You're alive and well. Count your blessings and move on with life. You can find another "friend".

First, thank God you are alright, second, people who dont know how to drive should have the firing squad called on them, third, I know how freaky the accident must have been, but the human mind will tend to forget, in time, the extent of the traumatic experience one has gone through. Fourthly, pooor pooor contour. If that happened to my 96 lx I would cry. Damn and its a shame it happened to a first year 95 lx with a 2.5, damn damn damn. Stupid ass retarded careless drivers.

Yea, but that means that his car did it's job. It's been said before and i will say it again...a Contour will be one of the safest cars you will drive. Sorry for your loss, but the 'tour can be replaced. Glad you weren't seriously injured. Time to get an SVT
