Default Tragedy after NC mini-meet

On our way home. My buddy got into an accident and his car is totaled. Too tired so Im not going to retype everything. Here's the thread I posted on BMC about everything that happened. http://www.bmcforums.com/showthread.php?t=13025

Gaadam that sucks. So I'm guessing he pulled out in front of the other driver right after you pulled out on the road? And yes it looks like he killed the front end. That's a messed up way to end a Sunday cruise.

He was pulling out because it was clear when he saw it. Keep in mind that this place is pitch black outside and there's a blind spot. Plus the other guy was speeding and tired from workin a 12hr shift.

Yep I figured it was probably a blind curve or hill. Plus dark like that. I know you guys were being careful. And I also know how the off ramps on I-40 are. I hate to see them pics. His pride and joy is busted up bad and I know it made all of ya sick on the stomach. I know i would be. Just goes to show, you can never be too careful. Coming off a freeway is always a challenge in NC. Sorry too hear you'alls day ended like that.

Well he wants to salvage as many parts as he can ie. rear rims and tires, guages, supercharger, exhaust, etc... He's waiting on the insurance adjuster to see what they want to do with it.
