We couldn't have gotten that lucky.

Well it appears the damage to the van is worse then anticipated. The other driver hit her almost squarely in the rear driver side wheel. Yesterday there was a slight wobble that I noticed, but Ktreva didn’t seem to notice anything while driving the whole 6 blocks home. This morning on her way to work she said that as soon as she hit 25 there was a vibration in the vehicle and a grinding noise.

Yea, this isn’t waiting for the insurance adjuster to investigate. When I called the insurance back I informed them that due to the new information I’m classifying the vehicle as now undriveable and taking it to a repair facility. After work tonight we had to go pick up a rental for her. She needed something to get back and forth to work in. This is going to make life difficult for a while, but nothing we won’t survive.

Now I’m off to answer some questions.

Oh boy... I hope that it's a relatively quick fix. :/

Yeah, always assume the damage is way worse than you think it is on first inspection. I'm sorry to hear that it's that bad - what a pain. Hope it gets fixed fast.

At least you have plenty of time to deal with this stuff, what with no access to anything at work, right? ;)

Hope it all works out for the best!

Glad to hear everyone is ok, but watch them for a couple days as symptoms could take a couple days to appear.

Not so good news about the van. Make sure the frame wasn't bent, cause then your in big trouble. Frame damange will screw the vehicle up for life.

I thought I saw a rental in your driveway. I'm so glad Nessa and the boys are ok. Sucks about the van, but it could've been much worse. Give Nessa a hug for me.

What a pain - but I am glad to hear Ktreva and the boys are okay.
