Wow the racetrack tailight can handle a rear end collision and still function but god forbid it gets wet, it will break. LOL

FWIW I do not think ti is totaled. I am guessing 20k worth of work and if it is an SRT then insurance will fix it.

Holy cow! Did the car protect you as it should? Hopefully you are intact with only minor injuries. It's hard to imagine it wouldn't be totalled except for the high value of the car. You need an entire rear portion of the car up to the front doors. Did they estimate how fast he was going?

Sorry to see that did air bags go off ?
My guess is totaled the roof line is twisted so the uni body frame is wracked

The frame is bent, I had to force open my driver side door

No but he got charged with speeding and DUI. I’m guess he was doing close to 60. Luckily we were moving a little

If your wife has legit injuries, I’d get a referral to a PI attorney. Hope she feel better soon.

May as well move up to a Hellcat if you can find a dealer with one! The likely PI settlement should cover it, though that can take up to three years.

Very happy you guys are ok. That looks like quite the hit. Could have been devastating in a smaller vehicle. The top of the frame looks bent and twisted. That’s a right off and sell off for parts.

Wow, as sad as it is to see the SRT like that I’m glad to hear both of were able to walk away with minimal injuries.
