Did it fall out of a truck or did someone kick it up as they drove over it? That sucks! Insurance claim?

Oh god! Insurance ain't gonna like that bill! That fender alone when I had it replaced and resprayed was 1404.00 and you have the windshield and anything else it hit + rental car. That's rough. Hey, glad nobody got hurt thought because I could see that possibly causing some serious issues if it hit somewhere else.

That could have been far worse for you, forget the car. Glad you're OK. She'll be like new in no time!

While it could have been a lot worse (I knew someone that got impaled by a post coming through the windshield - and lived!) this still really sucks! That's not going to be cheap.

My brother had a 2X4 come thru his windshield a few years ago. Lucky for him it hit the steering wheel and bounced back out. It could have been much worse.

Thanks everyone.. it will need a new grill, hood, windshield and repair whatever else. Dropping it off at body shop on monday and yes filing insurance claim. It did fly out of the back of a truck that was two cars ahead of me. Car in front of me swerved into shoulder and hit brakes and there was a car next to me so I just took the hit.

Ohhhh man that's going to be a 4-5k repair honestly if not a touch higher. Man I'd be pissed.
