00 Excursion VS Honda

This is what happens when an Excursion is T-boned by a Honda. My wife and three kids were in the car as well. My youngest daughter (who is 3) was sitting right next to the rear door and was not injured in the least. Any thing less than our Excursion (aka our Grand Prix) I am sure that myself and atleast one of the kids would have gone to the hosptial. We were hit at an estimated 30+ mph directly in the side at 90*. I had to change a flat tire, but we drove away, can't say the same for the Honda!

I will drive an Excursion for as long as I can find one to fix and drive!!!

Thank you. It definitely shook my wife and myself up for a while, really didn't phase the kids much. After waiting for the police for a while they started complaining about being hungry, but that was it.

Glad everyone is ok. I already knew an Ex was a stout truck but this makes me feel much better about my choice over a mini van.

Glad everyone is safe. Have you received any estimates for the repairs? Hopefully your rear axle didn't get tweaked/bent. I guess the Honda driver didn't understand the flashing yellow light and what yeild means.

Yea in the middle of changing the tire I realized I should take pictures before I changed it, because the police hadn't been there yet, so I thought it would be a good idea to photograph it before anything changed. You know just in case.

No we haven't gotten any estimates yet. On a positive note I can say that it still drives great! On the way home, when I let go of the wheel it drove straight as an arrow! It will be interesting to see what the damage will be. The main point of impact appears to be right at the rear door/ b- pillar.

glad to hear everyone is ok. there is a lot to be said for a full frame vehicle. a unibody rig would have folded like a taco. I have a tan running board I will sell to you for cheap. let me know if you want it.
