wow that frame definitely took a beating, thank god you're okay though, your car is replaceable, but your life isnt.

Was the guy behind you speeding or breaking any laws prior to hitting you? How's he doing now? Glad you're okay, thanks Mercedes!

Just make sure your medical issues will be taken care of. With an accident of that magnitude, a former manager of mine had serious trouble for years. REALLY think before signing anything!!!!!

Sorry about that. My grandmothers 1994 C280 got rear ended about 2 years ago, and she was fine.

YOWZA! Glad you're OK. DO go the Doc's if you haven't for a complete evaluation, you very well may have suffered damage to your spine and cervical areas, not to mention your noggin!

That's a HORRIFIC wreck, I hope you'll be fine with no residuals.

Wonder what caused this, was the driver drunk, talking on the phone, or just plain careless.

This kind of thing states the case for buying the safest, most tank-like car you can afford. I hope you'll get another safe car to replace this one.
