I picked up Kirby and Liz from school to take them home, ended up grabbing Bill (Who isn't an asshole anymore) and Josh on the way, dropped them all off, went to DJ's house, had grilled cheese for lunch, then came home, played Monopoly with Mom, won by forfeit, then put my shoes on to go to Kirby's house...
and thing...took a turn...
Pulling out of Tuttle I looked left, looked right, and looked left again, misjudged the distance away and the speed of the oncoming minivan, and pulled out. She tried to pull around me, honked her horn, I couldn't stop in time, and ended up clipping her right rear, which spun her around. Everyone was OK, but she said her van got totaled. I was able to drive the subaru home, and it's sitting in the driveway, where it will be for a little while.
The first thing that popped in my mind after "Holy shit, I just hit something!" was "Holy shit, I just hit a van, I just ran into children!" Thank goodness there wasn't anyone other than the driver in the van.
The only damage to the subaru is the right front, the headlight's kinda popped out, the parking light's smashed and the blinker's dangling slightly above ground level, the bumper's torn up and the hood's bent down. First major accident in the car, now that I think about it, it's the first accident period! Oh well, it had to happen some time...
ADDENDUM: I have pictures, if you want to see them IM me and I'll direct connect 'em to you
