Stupid public transportation!

I was on my way to work last friday, and I was next to one of the city's public buses (Marta for anyone in ATLanta), and the damn bus driver decided to let the bus float over into my lane (or decided to change lanes without seeing me or something)...the Son of a bitch puched me all the way up onto the curb at about 60 mph!!!!! angry angry it was either that or get side swipped by a bus...I broke 2 of my rims all to hell, and bent the front passenger lower control arm!!!!! eek angry eek angry so now my front passenger wheel sits on the back of the fender well...I was looking at the repair manual here on ecelica, and it looks like I can change the right side lower control arm myself...and thank god it wasn't the other side, cause there is a whole ton of crap for that procedure.. (repair manual) ...I'll post pics shortly...I'm just waiting for my girlfriend to email them to me off of her digital camera (yes I had the camera with me when this went down, and yes I got the bus number, and yes I filed a claim)
