Pontiac Bonneville Accident: Brake Failure Galesburg, Illinois

These are some pictures of what was left of my 1995 Pontiac Bonneville SE. This happened in Galesburg, IL in April of 2002. I was on my way to a friends house to go pick him up to give him a few driving lessons out in the country. He hadn't started driver's ed yet so I promised him I would give him a few lessons. Well when I called him, he didn't anwer his phone so I decided to go across town to Wal Mart, to pick u a few things up. While in route to The Wal Mart, I was approching Henderson St. off of Losey St. traffic was moving slower than usual due to heavy contruction on Henderson St. Well I was driving along slowing down with the traffic when my brake pedal went to the floor. The brake line had broke and the next thing I knew was I had an airbag in my face.

Than to create an even bigger scene, the passenger side airbag caught the owners manual on fire in the glove box!! So my accident took up almost 4 city blocks! I had three city cops, a state trooper, a fire engine, the fire rescue truck, and two different towing companys. Even though the brake line broke the police still deemed the accident my fault. I was given the ticket, and my insurance totaled my car out. The body shop told my insurance that I was going around 15m.p.h. on impact. I didn't think that much damage could happen at 15 m.p.h. I was proven wrong wasn't I? I only paid $2500 for the car and my insurance gave me $4100 so I took that money and bought a fully loaded 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme SL coupe. :) Not bad for a junior in high school working at Taco Bell. Perhaps it was a good thing this happened to me, I had had plans on letting my unlicensed friend drive the car out to the country. Good thing he didn't pick up his phone! :P
