Well ****, glad to be alive I guess.

So this happened 2 days ago. Was delivering pizza to a Hilton Hotel. Had my door open, was about to get out when I saw something coming at me in the mirror. Was barely able to jump back inside, couldn't even close the door in time. Van driver says he mixed up gas and brakes. One second difference, I woulda been squished.

Just a scratch, some polish and it'll buff out


Seriously? mixing pedals... was he drunk? so when you mix pedals you must target a car to stop?
well it seems you'll be without your car for a while... good things you are still here to talk about it... a couple of seconds more and you could've been not in that position.


it does seem the rear left wheel is tilted...damage to the structure and not only to the exteriors?

That's terrible! Hilton owes you a new Niro!
At least you weren't injured, it could have been much worse.
