Well here is the full story and many pics. Didnt break anything but my right foot is ****ed as I was standing on the brake pedal when we hit. So much so the pedal is now bent. (Edit, 2 weeks later it was found I had broke my 3rd Metarsal in my right foot. Was actually broke clean through.)

As I was coming to the interestion, which I had a green light to go across, a small SUV was facing me waiting to take a left and they did, which was fine. But I never saw the motorcycle behind it that followed him right through like they were strapped together. I hit the brakes to not his stupid ass when he appeared and made sure not to hit him. Next thing I know I see a Rav4 in my lane turning in front of me. I stood in the brakes. Didnt even touch the airbag when it deployed as I was tensed up which is bad to do in an accident. (Just had my airbag recall done 3 weeks ago thank god.)

Anyways, hit her, watched her roll which was really slow motion. Shut the Vizzle off, turned off the lights, turned on 4 ways and strobes and ran to her vehicle. Ripped the passenger side door open as the drivers side was on the ground, (pic can be seen and no one around but some random lady), and made sure she was alright.

Next thing I know, the guy on the motorcycle comes back screaming I hit his wife and he jumps on top of her car. I told him he was lucky it was her in the car and not him on the bike. He shut up after that besides, he told the cops it was her fault right in front of me after I said to him, I almost killed you. Plus 2 witnesses in different vehicles gave statements backing my story. Personally hes lucky, I was to install my dash cam this weekend and if it was in I would have turned in the vid so he could be citied for not yielding the right of way. Also if he had not run the light like he did and waited for me to pass, his wife couldnt have turned in front of me without rear ending him as they sat in the turn lane. If I had hit him, she probably would have then ended up hitting my drivers side someplace and they would have both been in the same wreck in or on different vehicles. He wasnt wearing a helmet despite them both being in a motorcycle accident just 3 weeks ago I found out while at this accident scene and found out he was at fault for that one. Talk about a moron.

Well, dude is part of the Nomad motorcycle gang, needless to say many of them showed up, started talking **** until the cops told them to leave as they had no business there. I did thank the cops for that as 6 on1 wouldnt have been fun.

Well, here is some pics. It is currently at my house so I can strip some stuff I know I will not be paid for by insurance. I do plan on a lawsuit to recoup some of my losses as I know I wont be working atleast tomorrow.

Enjoy the aftermath, I dont think it will buff out but maybe some speed tape will get it back into shape.

Sorry in advance for the quality of some pics.

You can see her in the 2nd pic. Both her arms were wrapped up from the previous cycle accident 3 weeks ago.

They ended up using the jaws of life to take out the back door and her back seats to get her out. From witness statements and her own admission of what happened durning our accident, she was citied which will help me out with my insurance. Stupid "no fault" crap.

The pics dont do it justice. That motor was much closer to the fire wall on the passenger side than the pics are showing. Hopefully tomorrow I can move around better and get underneath for a better view. The hood wont open.





And a couple shots of her just a couple weeks ago.

Well thats it for Ivy. Time to start looking for something else and I guess start driving the Lude from time to time. Thank whatever above it wasnt this car. Ive had it over 12yrs now and means a lot. I have 5 matching wheels to this car that were to go on the V but in a different OEM rim color. This is Lucy.





Sad thing is, Ivy had been in the garage for at least 3 weeks under a cover. Got off work early tonight and went for a cruise to watch the sunset. Didnt feel like taking the work truck so I took her. What do ya do?

Oh, and was going to be ordering my lift springs this weekend along with Bilsteen shocks, glad I didnt. Ha ha. Also was going to be getting my tires for my 05-06 RSX-S wheels for it too. Not anymore though. May actually sell a set of 4 as I have 14 of the rims. Ha ha.

1 question for you all, I know Im supposed to see motorcycles, there is even bumper stickers stating that, but why dont they see cars? I asked the guys parents that when they showed up on scene, they didnt have an answer imagine that. The parents were the ones who told me about the accident 3 weeks prior and the details. Why? Not sure. Maybe they really wanted to drive home the point of how stupid he is.

The lady in the Rav4 told my mom she never saw me or saw my headlamps, and fog lamps which have PIAA 2500K yellow bulbs in them. Her husband said he did though. Day or night I drive with everything on as my only previous accident was exactly the same as this one minus the roll over 17 1/2 yrs ago.

Maybe Ill buy a newer Vizzle so when I do another build thread more will be interested. Or I may go to an Element. Ive had an 00 and 06 Vizzle, and a 94 EX wagon 5spd so I like having room and over all Hondas have alway held up well for my in serious crashes, (2 now, both almost identical in nature.) Other was in a 92 Accord 2dr EX 5spd, my 1st Honda and that crash is why Ive kept buying Honda's and got this.



94 EX Wagon 5spd.



00 EX 5spd AWD Vizzle.

Sorry to hear about your accident, thankfully no one is critically injured ! Too bad your CRV is a write off.
Most accidents happen due to foolishness which is a result of impatience ! At intersections people speed and try to get thru to save a few mins not realizing how fatal that impulsive decision can be.
Sometimes 3,4,5 cars take a left between amber to red at a traffic light much to the frustration of oncoming traffic, it is almost like waiting for an accident to happen.

Sorry about your V but I'm glad that everyone was okay. So I read that you are thinking about getting another V. Are you thinking about a 3rd or 4th gen?

The best-looking 2:nd generation I have seen. Good that you could leave it relatively uninjured.

OH NOES NOT THE VIZZEL

Bummer, I say get another 2nd Gen (with a 5 spd)

swap all the after market stuff off and sell the dead one
Thats what I wanted when I got this. I wanted it and was going to add the TSX 6 gear for better MPG on the highway. The Element guys did it 1st but a few 2nd genners have followed suit. After 18 months of looking for the right one, this auto was to perfect to pass on. It was my 1st auto Honda.

A little bit of compound and it should buff right out.
Tried. Didnt work. Some speed tape and epoxy did wonders though. Ha ha.

Sad pictures of your fine machine. Do hope that better days are ahead. Hope so.
Best of Luck!
Thank you. Greatly appreciate it.

Maybe another 2nd gen. Definitely not a 4th. Possibly the later years 3rd gen but probably not. I may actually go with an Acura TSX Wagon with a manual. Thats been floating around my head for a bit too. Never had an Acura before.

So sorry. And that was my favorite color, too. But you're OK, That's what really matters.
That was the #1 color I wanted. Silver Moss Metallic. I always buy used cars so I never get exactly what I want. This was the 1st time I had a vehicle in the color I most wanted. Really I had finally got what I wanted, year, color, trim level, bought directly from the 1st owner who was selling it only because they had bought a new 2013 V, all maintainece records since new were handed to me. And they did everything on time or early. Never late. It was just a dream deal.

The best-looking 2:nd generation I have seen. Good that you could leave it relatively uninjured.

Thank you and greatly appreciate the kind words.

Funny thing the tow truck driver said to me, "I've seen this CR-V around, of any year yours WAS the nicest in town."

Well tonight I checked the milage on her and I have 69,479. That was 19,882 miles in 1yr and 7 months pretty much to the day as it was the middle of February when I purchased it.

Also, just 5,000 of it was from the Minnesota trip and just over a month ago 1,800 miles for a Colorado trip. It did awesome on both.
