Story as quoted by my buddy Scott (SV513)

"happened at about 10:30 .. ill let ty tell the story on how it happened. but it hit the sidewalk flew over a cube van, 4 door g5 360 on the front bumper in the air. atleast 4 flips . happened right in front of my car. i never ever seen anything soo violent. i was sure he was dead. i geared down from 4th at a fair speed to 2nd. ducked into a parkin lot. trying to dial 911 get my seatbelt off and stop my car and get out at the same time. befor i could even do any of the above mindy said .. hes out,. hes walkin around. i said WHAT!? i tossed the phone and ran up. never been soo happy to see ty. not a scratch on him. .. hes 100% fine no idea how he walked away from that people... honestly no shitin. it looked like the end. and it was the worse crash i ever seen. and in the top 5 if you count the ones i seen on tv. dont let the damage to the car fool you. it was bad. missed a pole (seen in the pics) byt about a foot.
i took him to the hospital last night to get checked and x-rayed. hes all good."

I do have full replacement coverage, on the original sticker price of the car... gonna see what happens with all that in the morning. I'm just glad to be alive after something that scary.
As far as the spare tire thingy, I have all 4 new (stock) rims in the trunk ready to be put on with tires :(

I don't see any deployed airbags. Did you have the optional side curtain airbags?

It is amazing that you walked away from that crash! Maybe you should go buy a lottery ticket?

By the looks of it, the car took its impact on the sides, and not enough to trigger the sensors.

Glad to hear that your alright.... Surprised airbags didn't go off... My Cavalier airbags went off in a crash to the side at 20 km/h... well at least you have your winter vehicle with the Gold trim you added on to get you around temporarily... hopefully your insurance will get you up and running with your new G5 soon.

Good luck man and best wishes.

Thanks guys for everything, as far as racing or speeds are concerned wasn't even that fast, around 80km/h or so...
it all happened pretty fast so hard to say exactly what the biggest factor was, but got cut off by another driver so close I actually thought I was hit, did some crazy swervies, hit a crub, and then caught some big air.

As far as the airbags, I don't think it hit any sensors in the bumper, the cover is destroyed, but the core metal bumper underneath is near intact. And my car doesn't have the side air bags.

For a new car, I'm not yet sure how the insurance process is gonna work, but with all I've paid so far (down, payments to date, aftermarket) I'm probally gonna buy an SE model package, or maybe even a gt model if I can find a leftover 07 at a reasonable price..... wish me luck guys!!!

Damn man, I had a similar crash like that not more than a month ago, but it was in my 06' Ion... Scary shit indeed, glad your alright. The insurance should cover all costs, medical, total loss of car and rental if you have it. What they did for me was pay off the lesser of 3 options for the price of the car, I paid 22k for the ion but got 19k for it through ins. So the difference between ins and GM was a few thousand, which was given to me as left overs.

I should show you guys the pics of my crash... actually, check them out below.
