Coming down court st (downtown flint) at about 12... some drunk [censor] came down a side ride and nailed my rear passenger side. I think he hit right at the tire. Right after they hit me, (it was him and his gf, both trashed, both suspended licenses) the ppl in the house they came from ran down, all of them drunk. I was afraid to call the cops because I would of pry got the shit kicked outta me, so I called my parents (I know I am a pussy) and my mom called the cops when her and my dad got there. They were all trying to get me to not call, offering to pay for damages, give me money (which by the looks of it they didn't have). 4 of the people there got put in cop cars, only 2 were in the car that hit me. My jeep didn't get any body damage but it did bend my rim and my breaks are dragging... I have full coverage, so we will see tomorrow what will happen... and if something isn't covered, I might sue or something.

So its 3am and I have to work in the morning... I am going to bed... I will keep all updated tomorrow after I make some calls.

That is all.

sorry to hear that but could of been worse!

Since you said your rim is bent, I would check to make sure your axle shaft isn't. I was hit on my tire by a truck and it cracked the rim. Put a new set on and the tire would wobble like crazy!

A friend of mine years ago was in the same situation, he was returning home from work. He was a drywaller doing a house in an urban development area in Detroit. A driver, wasn't even drunk, ran a stop sign and T-Boned him. My friend was dragged from his truck and had the shit beat out of him.
