To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Burnt to a crisp...

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I got a pretty scary phone call from my daughter... she had been in a car accident. She was on her way home with my other daughter in the car when she felt a car "bump" hers from behind (During rush hour on an over pass) she lost control and rearended a Trailblazer... She hit the TB pretty hard causing the DS airbag to deploy, the impact also caused the battery to explode causing a short somewhere which then ignited.

The car that bumped them never stoped to even check to see if they were ok.

The driver of the TB said that since it wasn't her fault she wasn't gonna stop either since she didn't have insurance, but when she saw smoke in her rear view mirror, she stopped and went to check on them... a few seconds later the car burst into flames.

When an officer asked my daughter how it happend, she told him and he accused her of lying because there was no visible damage to her rear bumper! Here's the funny thing though... even with all the front end damage done to the car there was not one scratch on the TB!!! So is he saying that my daughter didn't hit the TB either? dumb f*ck!

Thank god my girls are ok. The car... meh it can be replaced.

Here's whats left of the Aerio...

While not burnt, I can relate to being hit on the highway. That alone is a scary experience. Adding fire to the situation...geez.

What the plate number taken down by the person who rearended her? If not, you're SOL. Cops won't do a damn thing.

This being her first accident and it all happening so fast, plus adding the fact that it was rush hour = No plate + Liability only Ins. = YES... I'm SOL.

Yeah as said... don't buy the Aerio... ish, those cars aren't pretty but I never knew they were that dangerous! Good thing everyone's okay, although, are you going to have a claim against your ins. on that TB? Clearly... your car is going to the scrap yard (or is it plastic.... they don't like those.)

Wow. That's scary Pete! :)

I'm glad everyone is ok and that does suck about the car... I hope something good comes your way.

PS. Cali cops are not so good. I've met some decent ones but, I'd say most of the ones I have met, aren't that great of people.

No the girl's TB only had a tiny scratch which she wasn't worried about... Yes it's going to be scrapped... get this... they're giving me 200 for it... I paid 180 for the tow... you do the math... FML

Wow. That's scary Pete! :welcomeFP:

I agree with you and I hope so too and soon!
