Sh!tty. Did you file a claim with insurance or is the cost to fix it gonna be lower than the deductible? I almost got rear ended the other night. Some guy just got backs on his Yukon and was messin with them and next thing I know hes screeching tryin to stop before my truck did.

I would take the idiot that hit you to small claims court. If you were rear ended you automatically win - make 'em pay!
