Not such a good new year

1st day of the new year and i have already gotten hit... but not that bad because it was my friends little civic but it was still kinna weird... so after they ran the red light me and my friend chased this "put put" car they finally pulled over to knowledge there was a big black guy in the car.... so he gets out... im like kinna small compaired to this guy...but u know after an accident ur pretty mad so im yellin at him as im on the phone with the cops and their tellin me to get back into my truck....so all and all the people that ran the red light werent going to get a ticket but my friend was for some reason because he didnt have enough control or something... so we took off after about 30mins of the cops not showing up... (probably hittin up some donut shop).... so this morning i wake up to a cop knockin at my door.... saying that i fled the scene of an accident and im like well maybe if u didnt take so damn long to get there.. and then he was like the people that you chased down wrote down ur license plate number down and they were lookin to press charges on you for road rage...... but he was pretty cool he was like yah u dont want us gettin into this because one of u would of gotten a ticket... and that they cant press charges because theres nothing really showing that i was in road rage.... so yah its been a good 2005 for me already...

my friend was following me with his civic because we were going to the street races in tampa...so as were makin a left the light turned red....im in the middle of the intersection with my friend this little car starts to stop and when it turned red the little car floored it which im already starting to go... so i slam on my brakes and turn to the right a little to dodge it... than my friend had no time to react so he just hit the back end of me.... so in the end.... My friend (civic) hit my back bumper...but it was caused because the little other pos car ran the redlight.

I read the second version 3 or 4 times and it is starting to make sense. Let me get this straight...

You and your friend try to beat the red light to turn left at the same time as another car from another direction. You slam on your brakes to avoid hitting this other car. Your friend in the honda is too close and hits you. So what we have are three vehicles that shouldn't have been in the intersection to begin with all acting like they got their license from a cracker-jack box. So, after your friend who was following too closely hits you, you both decide to engage the third car in a pursuit even though he wasn't physically involved in the accident at all. Then you call the police and proceed to get out and confront this "big black guy" on your own anyway after chasing him down. When you become impatient because, heaven forbid, the police sometimes have more important things to deal with than one stupid fender bender and didn't drop everything to respond to your accident, you leave the scene and go on your merry way. It was important enough for you to chase him, but not important enough to wait for the police?? And after all this, you are surprised that the police acted upon this in the way they did?

I think I get it now.

lol no the police told me to get his license plate because he was at fault... and me and my friend werent in the wrong doing. because we didnt rush to get into the middle of the intersection. like u never go passed the white line so u dont have to wait and his civic was small he still seen the botton my my tire. and therefore he did try to stop but the grounds were wet and that year doesnt have abs so that is why he hit me.... and if a fender bender has more than 600$ in damage that i dont know what kind u have been in.

Your still not making any sense at all. My favorite part though... your not seriously blaming your friend hitting you because he was following too closely on his lack of ABS?? That is the most pathetic thing I have ever heard.

I was taking my truck to a garage parkin lot to take pics with several other rangers. And im not blaming the accident on the lack of my friends car, i know he wasnt paying enough attention to me and that is why he is paying for the damages. And on the other hand the person that ran the redlight got a ticket because there was video tape of them running the red light and my friend and I did not becuase we were not in fault. "3LiterBeater" would you like a cookie for copying and pasting my picture? I give you props for that you are one cool kid.
