Another Saabaru gone

I want to say thanks to everybody here at  This site has been a valuable resource and a wonderful community.  Over the past 11 years and 178000 miles I had some great times living on both coasts an travelling between them. 
As for the circumstances of her demise, I was stopped at a red light behind about 7 or 8 cars for a couple of seconds when I glanced in the rear-view and saw an Acura coming up fast.  I just had time to lean back and brace before she hit me going at least 30mph. She didn't even brake and said the first thing she saw was her airbag going off.  Texting? What do you think?
Those 2 guys in the picture were in the Mercedes CLA I rolled into after being hit.  they had minor scratches on their bumper cover and I had no damage to the front of my car that was discernible over 11 years of rock chips and parallel parking.

Insurance paid out about $5,000.00 which I put down on a new VW Golf.

Re: Another Saabaru gone

Sounds like what happened to me, except I was on the freeway when traffic stopped.  Texting?  Maybe not texting, but I'd say >99% chance it was *something* on a smart phone.  Checking in on Facebook from the back of a 9-2x?

Re: Another Saabaru gone


Saturday morning of the 4 day Thanksgiving weekend, a hit & run driver totalled our '05 92x Aero and seriously damaged my '05 Baja.

All while sitting on our driveway.
