Great day.. Not.

So my hood wasn't ready today... Than on my way to my cousins house I slid out and fish tailed and crashed my car. Fml. More body work to do now.

I caused around only 250$ in damage. Only my front bumper(which I needed) and a head light. Not worth a 500$ deductible.

Only 30 mph... That's what makes me mad. By the time I hit I was only doing 5

If I was going fast or playing I would just have to man upto it. Ive never slid out and wasn't able to fix itX especially only at that speed. Wasn't even going fast.

Re: Great day.. Not.

Could have been worse. At least you're ok and the damage done to your car was minimal.

That is pretty slow to hydroplane, maybe it was your tires. No tred?

My tires aren't bad. It's just I hydroplaned at 30-35 which is normal but not but I was able to control it till it slowed down. I could use tires.

I've hydroplaned at the speed but it was the first rain on a slight bend so there was oil. Scary stuff!
