Hate to be in this section again, with the same truck!!!

This is the third time this truck is involved in an accident. Damn survivor!!

This time an Idiot opened a door just in the front of me, since it was too close I couldn´t stop on time and hitted the dood.

In Mexico, the transit laws dictates that the fault is on the idiot that opens the door not the car that hits the door.

The Honda Accord ended with the door opened to 160° aprox. Damage on the lip, hinges, pillar A bent, front passenger side fender bent.

Colorado had some scratches on the fender and slight bent. Now its time for the body shop again :(
I ´ll try to take this bent out from the inside and repair the scratches with some paint pen from Autozone. I don´t have money to pay 150 USD for this repair or 250 for another fender and paint job.


Here the pics.

This truck is a survivor, first hit was a semi that rammed the back of the truck back in 2009, then My wife plowed away a medium size sedan in a traffic jam, and now I take on this door. To much adrenaline for a pampered truck

based on the history you have just described, I beg to differ with your idea of "pampered"

:lol:

Glad everyone is okay though.

This almost happened to me in the spring. Same thing but it was the numbskull driver getting out of the car on a busy street
Actually the idiot that opened the door barely had the time to take his hand off the door when I was just about to push it.

If its only material damage the law is direct and easy, but If there is some injury a simple stupid accident like this caused by imprudence can cause months of legal paperwork for the car that hit the door.
