Did you witness my accident?

Postby Mad_City_Student » Wed May 22, 2013 8:50 pm

Last Monday at about 11:30 in the morning, while on the way to a final exam at UW-Madison, I was in a traffic accident with an ice cream delivery truck at the corner of First and Johnson Streets. I didn't call the police since I had to get to my final.

The driver of the truck seemed cool and gave me his insurance info. When I tried to submit my estimate for repair, I found out that he is saying that I ran into him (he actually backed into me).

I tried to check the traffic camera that is located at that corner, but they only maintain video for 72 hrs. and I didn't know the other driver wasn't a stand-up guy until the next Monday.

I'm hoping that there is someone out there who saw this and can give a statement.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm asking myself if I was this naive in college, and yes, I think I was.
Whatever this accident costs you, consider it tuition towards a lesson learned in the reality of human nature.
But don't let it make you bitter.
For every asshole ice cream guy, there's a saintly pizza driver.
For every Meade, there's a Snoqueen that will balance things out.

Sorry to hear you got creamed. It can make you and I both wanna scream.

But, at the end of the day, I hope you can find some good humor in it all.

I try to stay away from today's ice cream truck drivers. I bought from one recently and a little later had breyer's remorse.

Like you, I had an accident once with an ice cream truck and his insurance company failed to compensate me.

They blamed the whole thing on a rocky road during a blue moon and something about a turtle in the road... idk.


(k... that's all I have and I've been up since 4 with over 500 miles under my belt... g'nite and I sincerely hope you get made whole.)
