What heart break looks like

So last night a lady decided she couldn’t wait and hit me from the side. I ended up losing control and sliding 200ft into some ones house. The end result is a lot of chest and shoulder pain, and the lost of my Evo. Be safe out there mates.

Oh dang. Sorry to hear about this but thankfully appears as though you will be OK?

Maybe a part out & roll you into a CT9A chassis?

Damn, glad you're ok. Cars and parts can be replaced, people can't.

Yeah, this could have ended much differently.

Hope to see you back into an EvO? Is that your plan?

So obviously glad everyone is ok, and it sucks you lost your car.

But, dude. How fast were you going on what appears to be a smaller residential road? Cars don't "slide" 200ft when you're going 25-35mph.

This. Absolutely no way you went that far if you were obeying the speed limit. You were hit on the left side of your car, and somehow veered left, went 200ft up a driveway, and ran into a house, hitting hard enough to punch a hole in the wall?

You had to be FLYING to manage that. A car sliding sideways doing 40 would be hard-pressed to go that far. Braking distance for ~55mph is 200 feet. Keep that in mind.

Evos don't stop as well on grass as they do on pavement, but due to the distance, I still have to think that OP was cookin' along when he got hit. Stay safe, ladies and gents.
