Car Accident

Monday of the week I was heading from my parents house to Winder Farm to pick up some milk and then it my grandpa's house to do taxes. I hadn't been on the road very long when a guy decided to pull out in front of me and I hit the side of his car. I am pretty sure the his car it totaled. From an estimate I have received from a body shop, they are saying I have about $2100, but we can't get the hood opened so there might be more damage under that hood.

State Farm is the insurance company that the other drive has. They have been really good to work with. Someone contacted me Monday evening to get my statement as to what happened and within the hour they had called back to tell me that they were accepting liability for the accident and to let them know where I wanted to take the 4 Runner. Tuesday I called in sick and ended up at Instacare to get my shoulder looked it. They are thinking that I have jammed my rotator cuff. So he told me that if it isn't feeling better in a week to go see an orthopedic specialist... Fun for me... Tuesday I also went to an auto body shop that Shaun's cousin recommended and got an estimate from him. I talked to Shaun and he felt good about going with them so I called State Farm back. They finally got back to me yesterday and a claim adjuster came out this morning to look at things. I will hopefully be able to take my vehicle in by Monday to have it repaired!
 
Here are some pictures...

I am pretty sure his car is totaled... 

Hopefully everything will get taken care of quickly and I can have my 4 Runner back. It is going to be weird driving a rental car...
