    I seem to be ok, all x-rays/scans were negative. But I’m so sore I can’t really stand up or walk without extreme pain.

    WOW Paul!

    Hope you recovers without any problems from this accident. Take the time it takes to feeling better before doing any heavy physical activities.

    Man the life can change fast and even you are not responseble or is able to do anything about it when it happens.

    Take care!

    Sorry to hear/see this Paul. Hope you all are ok. I am an extremely defensive driver and always leave plenty of space between myself and the cars in front of me, yet I was rear ended twice in the last few years - once when stopped at a light and once while making an entrance to the parkway - both times by "distracted" drivers. Luckily only the rear bumpers had to be replaced. With the sheer density of traffic out there combined with so many drivers simply not paying attention these rear enders are way too common.

    good thing you had a good size vehicle. can't believe how much damage was done. glad you're OK, but I suspect you'll feel a lot worst in a couple of days. hopefully it won't last long & you'll get back to normal. how was the young girl ? She had to get banged up pretty bad. where was your destination in upstate NY ? good luck and take care.

    Thanks, man. Cops said she was banged up, but ok.

    I am barely able to walk today, and standing up is painful.

    We went to Nanuet. Just a few minutes off of the new Tapanzee. (I won't call it by the new name. Lol)

    Glad to hear you're relatively okay after a hell of a hit like that.
    Hope you get feeling better soon.

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    Holy smokes Paul - Sorry you had to go through that! How’re you doing some days after?

    Was that a dealer exchange run you were on? Like hmardown mentioned - thankfully you were in an explorer, not a fiesta!

    No matter how much of a defensive mindset you’ve got, sometimes there’s just nothing you can do. Despite allowing ample space to buffer for the slowdown, using my rear fog lights to raise attention, still had the back corner of my car rearranged by a 19 year old who “didn’t realize traffic was stopping that fast”. Thankfully we were separated by 2 lanes of traffic as we both sat on the shoulders after the impact; if I had been able to talk to her right away I fear I may have regretted my adrenaline fueled interaction...

    Hope you can get back to feeling normal soon!

    Hey, thanks man.

    It was a straight buy by my dealer. We drove up in a used car to grab the Explorer. The used one was a 2017 Focus. That was the one that I was driving when I got creamed.

    Good news is, I am WAY better as of today, and will be going to work in the morning. Still pretty bruised up, and a little sore, but I should be fine.
