Part 1
Today on my way to work I got in an accident! I am fine and the other guy is too. I was stopping at a red light and the jerk behind decided he didn’t want to fully stop and rearended me. It wasn’t too hard a hit. He just kinda tapped the bumper but it left some scratches. I got the guys info, and thankfully he had insurance! hopefully we can make this an easy and quick fix on my car. I will let my insurance know, and I already have an idea where I am going to take it to get it fixed. Just wanted to run that by ya. -Eric

Progressive insurance,
On Friday, March 8, 2013, I was involved in an automobile collision in my 2002 Mitsubishi Galant. The time was approximately 6:45 a.m. The account number related to this vehicle is 78811654. I was coming to a stop at a red light at the intersection of Stark St. and Liberty Ave., and then a grey 1996 Ford F-150, Oregon plate 364 EUC, driven by Alex Johson rear-ended me. Mr. Johson seemed unaware that the light at the intersection had turned red, and failed to come to a complete stop. The impact was not severe, but my car will need repairs to the rear bumper, trunk, and driver’s side taillight. I have enclosed photos of both cars after the impact, and Mr. Johson’s insurance information. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am available Monday-Friday, 5 p.m.-10 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Thank you for your assistance.
