It looks like you are not the one at fault. But you should humble a bit. I do not think you are a terrible driver and should not be allowed to enjoy a good car. But just think about what you could have done that would have saved it.

It is a very common crash scenario, and I cannot prevent thinking that a more experienced driver could have averted it with a combination of better reflexes and covering the brake even before the girl did the mistake, because it is just so probable that she'll do it. Next time, be ready, it might still not save it, but airbags will not always save you, so better take all chances on your side. You are the one responsible of your safety, often, that means that you have to provision for the stupidity of others.
