I was moving cars around my diveway, and I parked the suburban at the top so I could move the mustang out of the way. I get down the hill just in time to watch the suburban rolling at about 20 MPH right into the passenger side of my stang. Killed the front fender, the door, the a-pillar is moved in about 2 inched, the window is shatterd, and the quarter panel is destroyed. Then the suburban rolled into a tree, and so the front and back bumper are totaled, and a lil more damage.

Don't trust auto Tranny's!

theres nothing like having a third person veiw of your pride and joy getting smahed.

Joe, man that sure sucks to hear about the Stang and your suburban being crashed at the same time.. I hope that your insurance will cover the repair of both of your vehicles..
Good luck and i hope that you can get your Mustang fixed and back on the road soon..

PS - Lesson learned: This is why vehicles have a parking brake! http://64.21.184.154/ubb/tongue.gif

Sorry to hear about this one Joe. Automatics can do that to you sometimes. You never forget that ratcheting sound an automatic can make when its not fully engaged in Park, as the car decides to roll down the driveway.
The property damage idea stinks, but fortunately no body was behind the truck when it happened.
I had this happen to me once. After driving a stick car sometimes you get use to just leaving the car in gear. This caught up to me once when I drove the wifes automatic.

I don't think insurance is going to cover any of it, because their both our cars

Joe, if you have collision insurance then off hand I don't see a problem. What would the difference be if the Stang wasn't yours.
The way I see it, your deductable would take action in your settlement, and then your insurance rates would go up accordingly.
I'd say, this is why we have collision insurance. Even if this was not an accident, when comprehensive coverage is involved the insurance co. has an interest in the car's condition.
Keep us posted!

what if yuo got collision coverage on the stang and then a week later this incident actually happens? Or have you already reported it and made everything final?
