Heartbroken 2

Thursday night I was dropping off a buddy of mine to his home. I was driving and switching lanes and heard a loud pop sounds. Next thing I know I am spinning and I hit the median on the high way. Turns out my driver side rear tire had exploded. I have pilot sports all around. Not sure of the age, I have not changed the tires since i bought the car last year.

Both air bags deployed
Front bumper gone
Bent frame for sure

I contacted my insurance and they are handling it.

These cars are pretty damn safe and both my friend and I walked away without a scratch.

Not sure what the outcome of the insurance adjuster would be. Glad we were both safe and wearing our seat belts!
