Default She killed my Bimmer :(

So I was driving home from school yesterday, and I came to a light, I entered the intersection to turn left on a green, it changed yellow and eventually red so I turn, some dumb lady runs the red at 40 mph and hits my TI, and bounces off hitting another car. She ran the red having babies in the car too. Needless to say, since we're in utah, the law states I get the ticket for failure to yield to oncoming traffic, even if the light is red. So now my TI is injured and in the repair shop. I find out if the insurance deems it totaled on thursday, but if it is its a 1996 318ti with 75000 miles active package and in excelent condition. How much do you think I will get if it is totalled? I have complete full coverage, and KBB.com says my car is worth 7,900 USD but will I get more than that? I wanna buy another TI if mine is gone. I hope she's not and I have a feeling she'll scrape by. The people say they can return her to factory specs if she isn't hurt so that will be nice! Do you think I'll be able to get some dough out if it if she doesn't make it? Honestly, I'd rather have my TI than money, but if she doesn't make it I wanna get a fair amount from it. How much do you think I could get?

Does she also get a ticket for not yielding to traffic AND running a red light? IF you car is total led, make her pay for the new car.

In Utah, its the person turning who is at fault, the others involved get no fault, so I got the tickets. If it is, my insurance will cover it completely. They said I'm liable due to the law so I can't make her pay.

Could I pull the rarity factor in due to the lowish miles and considering how many there are around here?

It doesn't work all that well, but don't let me discourage you from trying. Fight for what they give you, don't take the first offer unless it makes you happy, which it most likely will not.

Technically, they were both running the red light. Sorry to hear about the accident, and be safe next time. Running a red light is not worth it.

Here in PA you can legally run a red light if you enter the intersection on green, waiting to turn.

The idea is that you're clearing the intersection.


Anyway, sucks about the car.

how spasticated is that system?

what if someone is walking across the intersection on a green and an oncomming car runs the red light

does the dead pedestrian get a ticket??


"Dear Mr and Misses Jones,

We´re sorry to inform you that you daughter was run down today by someone running a red light,

You will find enclosed a summons to appear in court for the payment of repairation of the damaged vehicle.

If you do not attend, you may face possible incarceration"


how fcukin gay can you get?!?!

Rofl Mal.



That's some **** luck man, she should get endangerment of some sort. I think it would suck for either of you to get a ticket after such an event occurred, would be like salt on a wound, but if she didn't get one you shouldn't either. I would fight that, how much was it?

Yeah, you know what.. I take that back now, some states do say that it is ok to make a left turn at a stop light controlled intersection if you were already in the intersection after the light turned red...

The interesting thing is I was trying to look and see what the law is in Utah and I found a link from some Chief of Police that said you could do it, but make absolutely sure that the other traffic was really stopping.

In Florida I think it depends. We have a bad redlight running problem, as most places probably do. I've seen cases where three or four cars were sneaking out into the intersection and the cops let the first car caught in the red to go, but pull over the cars behind the first driver.

I'd say definitely fight that ticket. The person that ran the red light should have also gotten a ticket. I'd also think about either getting a lawyer or teaching yourself how to take up your case with the insurance as you were probably doing something legal, and the other person was not. Maybe you were both at fault, but that is better than being totally at fault.
