A Sentra Driver/Owner No More... Free Parts!

18 August 2007: a VERY sad day.

My '92 Sentra E was totaled in a single-vehicle accident at about 1730 (5:30p) on Saturday 18 August 2007. I was driving northbound on US-81 from Enid, OK to Wichita, KS when, just south of Wellington, KS, my rear tires hydroplaned out from behind me and I spun off into the roadside ditch. The last thing I saw before I had spun 180 degrees around was that I was heading for a culvert in the ditch and then I braced for impact.

The next thing I remember was waking up in the ambulance on my way to the Wellington Regional Hospital.
Apparently what had happened after I spun around is that I struck the culvert with the right rear corner of my car, ramped up and over the culvert (~40' wide), struck a light pole that was on the other side, hitting it between my right rear wheel and passenger-side door, which continued to rotate my car so that when it landed it rolled onto the driver's side and then onto the roof.

I only sustained a few lacerations to my head and right forearm (23 stitches in all) and multiple minor abrasions and bruises.

The main point of this post, however, is to let the Sentra community know that my car's remains are now at a junk yard, free to be picked over for anything you feel is worth taking. And when I say "free" I really mean "free". I do not know what all is worth taking from the wreckage, but from what I was able to tell, the main things worth taking are the 15" B14 rims I had on it. They all appear to still be in good shape with only a few scratches on them; they don't look bent or dented at all. I didn't take them off of the car to thoroughly check them over, but they should be good.

In short, if anyone wants to go check out what's left of my Sentra, they can have whatever they want, for free. It's at Strickland Road Service, at the intersection of I-35 and US-166, near South Haven, KS. They're open 24 hrs, and their number is (620) 892-5232.

Good-bye, Sentra-world, it's been a blast.
