Went head on & walked away

So tonight I was driving along at around 35-40 mph when vehicle from opposite direction entered my lane to turn down fork in the road. We went head on and I couldn't believe I wasn't hurt nor was my passenger (a little sore). My car is possibly going to be totalled out. I must say i am very impressed with how well the car held up inside and the impact didnt really hurt. Here are some pics.

glad you're okay and walked!!

I mean I wasn't there, but from experience in a slightly head on crash in a G37, when the rest of the car is perfectly fine... depending on engine damage.. it is unlikely they will total it..

that being said, glad you are okay, you posted at 3:15AM, so you felt fine then, when you read this, that might not be the case, I would get to a chiropractor/hospital as soon as possible for observation, as sometimes, these injuries take time to develop, and when they do, if no action was taken, you're out of luck...

perhaps also get in contact with a lawyer.. pretty ridiculous that they barged into your lane, could have killed you.

Dude! Glad everyone's OK. Hope you both went to the ER to get checked out. Some MVA injuries don't show up until later.

Sorry for your car but glad you made it out. I agree with everyone, hope you got checked out even though you feel fine as something wrong may not always show up.

I've been in accident like that before where I didn't feel any soreness till about 12 hrs later. I couldn't breathe or get outta bed. Fortunately it wasn't anything major. And plus, your adrenaline is going thru the roof during all this so you don't really feel anything. Good to hear you're ok.

One passenger in the other car lost some teeth and injury to head. Driver wasn't intoxicated, but driving on a suspended license, tried claiming her passenger was driving, and my luck...no insurance. I do have underinsured motorist protection, but I hate claiming this on my insurance.

I'm really anxious to see if they are going to declare it totalled or not. I hope to just start over.

Fuuuuuucckk...
Hope you're okay man. Reminds me of when a drunk driver crossed into my lane late at night on the highway and completely obliterated my Honda Civic which lead me to buying my Bimmer.
Get yourself checked. Sometimes people are hurt internally and don't feel any symptoms and have problems later on. It won't hurt you to get check out by a doctor and maybe a chiropractor. Plus, you can make the other guy's insurance pay for it all. Your car will most likely be "totaled" according to your insurance, but Damn, your car held up well. Best of luck!
