I don’t usually do things like this, but desperate times. So I have been having issues with my own car where it wasn’t starting. I thought it was the battery, bought a new one to find out if that was the issue and it was not. A friend who works on cars told me it could be our alternator, so with the last of the money I had I purchased it. Had my friend install it which took hours just to find out that again wasn’t the issue. Yes I should have taken it to a mechanic to get it checked but at this point I didn’t have the money to do so. After realizing this I was told it could be our starter. And I now don’t have the money to purchase a starter as I don’t get paid any time soon. Now let me get to the part where I got in an accident. So since I don’t have my car at the moment I asked my mom if I could borrow hers to be able to go purchase the alternator we needed to replace. On the way to pick up my boyfriend so he could help I got in an accident in my moms car. I was on a single lane road passing by an elementary school and the car in front of me decided to stop for a woman to cross the road, not at a crosswalk, in the middle of the road so I did not have time to break as he shouldn’t have stopped in the middle of the road for this woman to illegally cross. So now I am obviously going to have to pay for the damages to my moms car because my fault or not I still have to pay for it and also my own car. I don’t have any other means of getting rides to work or my boyfriend either. I have to come up with $1,100 in a matter of days and I don’t have the a credit good enough to get a loan and I haven’t been working at the job I have for long. I have tried everything I can so far but I don’t know what else to do. I hope you can take this into consideration I appreciate you taking the time to read this.
