He was travelling extremely slowly, she was going maybe 30-40 km/hour. I'm not sure what that is in miles? Slow speed due to icy conditions on a residential street, basically.
There was a fair bit of damage though, front passenger door bashed in and uncloseable, passenger wheel bent and possibly loose, and the trunk became slightly ajar which is odd considering the place of impact. DD was in the car at the time and was totally uninjured and untraumatized, thankfully. Body shop estimated $4000 in damage, so my vehicle is a write off coz it was worth about half that.
I wonder... I'm going to Costco in about an hour and wonder if I should get a booster seat.
