My 2018 Crash Experience

Just wanted to share some carnage from a wreck I had the other week. I was well on the brakes by the time we had hit, so don't recall EyeSight reacting. One surprising thing is the other driver had all his airbags (front/side) go off, but none went off on my end. The other driver was on the wrong side of this divided highway and we both ended up turning into each other in an attempt to avoid it.

After discussions with the repair facility, they are thinking around $10k in damage, which isn't enough to total the car. However, they won't know more until they tear it down to fully account for everything. Surprised how well the Outback held up!

Don't see the Vid, but glad you made it out okay.

At a likely initial closing rate above 100 mph (~50 mph road speed each vehicle), it's unlikely EyeSight would have a chance to make much difference. Glad you are all right, though. The Outback can be repaired or repleced.

Also, with the way the oncoming car was coming around the curve right next to the barrier it looks like the driver reacted and braked about as quickly as the Eyesight would have recognized a threat. In fact that looks like a very quick reaction by the driver considering one would never expect a car approaching that quickly going the wrong direction.



I wonder how long it took the other driver to realize he had been the one going the wrong way?


Watching that video made me think it would have been cool to have the gps data on the video to see the speed at impact and how much the braking had slowed the car. At first I was kind of creeped out having that data on mine but it is kind of cool.

Speaking with the driver after the accident, he had no idea he was going the wrong way even after the impact. He legitimately thought he was on the correct side of the road until I spoke with him after I got out of the car.


Unfortunately, my dash cam is a pretty cheap model so doesn't have GPS built in. I anticipate I was going 50 when I saw him, and probably got it down to 20 for the impact. No idea on the other car's speed.

Where is that, the I-405/I-90 interchange? How on earth did the other driver get on there the wrong way? Sheesh. Glad you're OK.

Thanks! It's in Everett where 527 cuts under I-5 and becomes 526. He somehow went across all the SB lanes while turning and ended up on the NB side of the divider. Who knows...

It appears from the photos of the collision that the airbags wouldn’t go off based on the point of impact on your car. You were really hit mostly on the front-left corner and the other driver experienced more front impact than you.

Bummer for sure, but it could have been a whole lot worse, right?

Golly jeez that was crazy. Seems to be more crazy than not these days. Car did it's job, and you are OK. That's a great outcome for something so bad. Glad you are ok.
