Texting while driving?????

The damage to the car is on the driver’s side, but the car appears to have run straight into the yucca. How did the driver’s side get so badly damaged? Was it already like that? Is this a planned “accident” to cover the damage on the driver’s side from a previous accident? No doubt the car will be totaled from so much body damage.

No rust on the prior damage.

I meant to say, no rust on the driver side damage, so it’s likely not prior damage.

That’s not how primer, paint, and clearcoat work.

Prior damage could have been anywhere from 10 minutes, to 10 weeks ago.
