But apparently neither you nor that supposed "illegal immigrant" know much about insurance. Or traffic law.
As the car got close you can guess what happened... The old junker car pulled right out in front of the car that was behind me smashing into the side of the person car.
Generally speaking, the law holds that the driver Exiting, into the flow of traffic, is to yeild the Right of Way to on-coming trafic.
In your scenario, the accident would have been deemed the spanish speaking driver's fault; it would have been his insurance (if he had insurnace) that would have been forced to repair the Mercedes.
Additionally, the Mercedes driver's insurance company would not be held responsible for any of the Spanish-speaker's injuries or the damage to his car, in as much as he was at fault for the collision for failure to yeild. Now, he'll probably wind up in jail; maybe be deported.
Unless that was his intention, I hardly think it makes for a very good "scam"!
So what was Your motivation for posting this piece?
What's on your Agenda, Hmmm?
Edit for spelling and to add: Your presence, witness testimony would have been unnecessary; the mere observable fact that the side of the Mercedes was hit would have been proof enough of the clunker driver's violation. Furthermore, any allegation that the Mercedes was speeding (contributory negligence) would be countered by measuring the available skid marks left by the two vihicles.

But basically... we are all brainwashed by the media and TPTB who have an agenda!
And we ALWAYS fall for it!
