Panorama of Destruction: Updated

My parked car a 2011 Ford Focus with only 7000 miles on it by the way; was just hit by a drunk driver, and now all my joy of an approved Kickstarter for BATTLE BLOKX is more or less crushed, but were insured so it should be alright in the end.

UPDATE: At first we were hoping the damage was all cosmetic, but as you can see in the picture above the front wheel is well out of place, and the car is completely un-drivable.

UPDATE: The body shop has estimated the damage at approx. $2500 and it will take about ten days to repair. Insurance will pay for it minus a deductible of course.

UPDATE: 2/8/2012: The traffic investigator just called and told me they had the suspect come in and charged him with “Driving on a Suspended License, and Hit and Run with Property Damage”. He will get his plea hearing on the 25th and then we’ll se how things go from there.

UPDATE: 2/21/2012: We got the car back but it’s still damaged and the insurance is giving us a little bit of a runaround. We’re hoping to have it sorted out in a couple days, but the car's probably not going to be 100% till march. Just in case you don’t remember, it was originally hit on February 5th.

UPDATE: 2/21 again: The Insurance Adjuster just approved everything, apologized for the delay and the shop will be giving us a call to complete the work. Just to clarify the damage is hidden and is only noticeable at speeds over 25 MPH. So it's not really anyone’s fault other then the idiot who hit it in the first place.
