My mom was on her way to some meetings this morning. She was driving through the country and had some idiot riding her tail. All of a sudden she saw a huge tomcat running full speed out of the field on the side of the road. Before she had time to react, she hit it. She felt really bad and was really upset because she saw something go flying and she thought it was the cat's head, unfortunately for her Vibe, it turns out it wasn't the cat's head...
it was her fog light, including the SilverStar bulb
. The damage seems limited to the missing fog light, fog light bulb and black insert. The plug for the fog light was partially broken, but the wires are intact. One of the retainers for the front driver's side wheel well liner is gone and the part of the bumper cover that attaches to the fender was popped out, but I popped it back in and it seems nice and tight now. Needless to say my mom is pretty bummed right now. I will be driving it to work tomorrow and then heading to the insurance company after work to see what they have to say. I could replace the fog light, etc., but we want to make sure that the frame, suspension, etc. is fine. Everything underneath looks okay, but you never know. Better safe than sorry. She said it was a huge cat, so I'm really surprised the damage wasn't way worse
