Default My ranger beat up an F150 the other day...

Okay so I got in my first car accident a week or two ago, so heres some background information to paint a picture. I'm still on my learners (taking my test this month). Where I live you have to wait 9 months, plus I started a little late. I always park my ranger next to a big tree, on the edge of a small hill to the left of our drive way. On the bottom of that hill is my neighbors yard, and his F150 parked right behind my ranger. About 3 yards distance.

To the story. I just came back from some stores with my mom, it was dark. I had just gotten new shoes not long ago still feels kinda weired, and my shoes were wet. (no excuse) I was backing into my spot, and i tapped the gas a little to help it move along, and then I went to break and I accidently hit the gas again, my mom started yelling, and I paniced. I went to slam on the break, and I slammed on the gas. Stupid accident. I backed into my neighbors 1976 F150. I hit his rear fender, but I bent the frame so they classified it as totaled (dent was at least 1ft in). And I broke a tail light, and barely bent my rear bumper a little (It's been deformed anyways I dont care about it) Then the fun started...My neighbor was actually really cool about it. Insurance didn't go up much either cus the F150's bluebook was $500.

i hope the 150 was falling apart and not super nice though.

I was mad! But It did make me a more cautious driver. My neighbor put $1500 into it within the last 2 years. So I feel kinda bad.

You have made a permanent negative impact on his insurance record. The time and money he invested in that truck (no matter how low the insurance thinks its worth, you know it doesn't mean squat in real life), is now lost, not including the original price he paid. The least you could do is man up and offer to buy the truck if it's worth that little, and save the good relationship you have with him.
