Sucks. You got over as far as you could without a shoulder and slowed down for him.

Hope it’s an easy fix. Maybe Roscoe and Cooter can keep it from being reported to CARFAX.

@sheram - Not sure the local/state laws governing insurance claims but try and ask for a diminished value check to cover the fact that your Carfax will now show an accident against the Jeep. It should cover beyond the repair costs since it’s intended to offset the fact that the value of your vehicle is less because of the filed accident. Refuse the first offer since the first is always usually a low ball.

Have an attorney contact them, they will more then likely buy you a brand new wrangler. Glad everyone is ok. It’s getting more and more unsafe for officers to run emergency traffic but everyones problem is the most important in the world and they want the officers there 5 minutes ago.

Correct but my thought is something is better than nothing! Good luck with everything!

Get your dashcam here.
https://www.blackboxmycar.com/pages/dashcam-buyers-guide

They import a lot of cams from overseas who tend to have the best tech. Anything made in or made for the US isn’t as good.
Also, keep in mind a dashcams footage can be used against you if you’re at fault. If the other driver sues they can request copies of the footage. I think even the police can...not sure though.

Glad to hear they are going to take care of it. Heard other stories where they will try to put blame on the other driver. Having a dashcam is always good to cover/prove your side of the story.

This video and post (thank you Stan) just inspired me to pull the trigger on a dash cam for my Jeep.
I have one in my work truck but it’s obvious anything can happen anywhere. I saw a recent YouTube video where a guy backed up into a woman’s car and tried to claim she ran into him.

I never believed in using dash cams until my RV got sideswiped on the interstate resulting in $21k of damage. I installed a Garmin cam in it. Just installed BlackVue cams front and rear in mine. Nice that they record even while parked to cover those parking lot disasters. HERE

I think you handled that perfectly. Good example of not panicking and doing something stupid like running into the telephone pole head on to get fully out of the way. I work in auto insurance (the medical side, so I can't help with questions regarding damages to your Jeep). The worst injuries I see are people avoiding something in the road (like a squirrel) and rolling their vehicles over or hitting trees/telephone poles.
