So I was leaving work just now (I part-time it in a real estate office once a week) and as I was backing out of my spot, I hear a CRUNCH. Yes, an accident. And I'm not sure who is at fault. It was one of the first spots, right up by the street. My spot was parallel to the street. I looked behind me, no one was there. Then all of the sudden I hear the crash. Turns out another realtor's wife had pulled in behind me from the street as I was backing out. The confusing part was that she wasn't there when I looked. She had to have come in very fast. In fact, she told me she saw me backing out but didn't have time to honk or anything. She just cruised in behind me and I hit her back fender. I'm not sure who is at fault. Maybe me. But because she came in off the street, how could I have seen her before she was there? Plus I was already 2/3 out of my spot when she came in behind me. Like she was trying to squeek in behind me even though I was already part-way out. The police came. He said it's a no fault state, and private property, so they don't make any determination of guilt. Our insurance companies will have to battle it out to determine who was at fault. Even then, even if one of us is found at fault, I'm not sure what happens then. Do my rates get jacked up? UGH. Plus now my back kind of hurts. Is it possible to hurt your back when only going 1 mile per hour? What a horrible stupid thing. It just ruins my day.
