Another MS6 bites the dust

Well, this happened a couple weeks ago, and now that everything's finished with insurance I thought I'd post up some pictures. No one was hurt, but the car was a write off. I'm very thankful for side impact airbags cause this car protected me very well, just slight soreness due to the seat squishing me a bit.

Lesson learned, if you're turning left onto a highway, and it looks like the straight lanes are clear with ONE car coming from your left in the right hand turn lane going to make a right hand turn...wait for it to make its turn, because it could be blocking your view of another car beside/behind it going straight.

I only had the car for about 1 1/2 yrs, and it was a great car, I'm going to miss it a hell of a lot, but onto other things I suppose.

Yeh, it was upsetting to say the least, just glad no one was hurt.

I saw some of the other threads about some other Speed6's getting written off, sucks to see that many getting totalled around the same time.

I can't believe the side glass didn't shatter! At least you were likely spared cuts to go with your bruises. Haha!

Is it a seasonal thing for Speed's to be taken out like this?
What is the count now?

But for real all those fancy safety features did their job...
