R.I.P Eclipse :(

Avoiding a speeding SUV on the way to work. Spun out but counter steered to avoid any other cars (I was the only one to crash....remarkably at 8:00 am during decent traffic).











My next car will ... something sensible, reliable, good on gas, and with a good re-sale value

This doesn't make sense - explain.

Where was the SUV, where were you, what action did you abruptly take to "spin out", how fast were you going, etc...
I was in the middle lane on the toll way doing 65 and the SUV, which was a sports BMW but I didn't see what kind, was in the same lane but two cars behind me. They were in a hurry and the left lane was not available to change so they sped up (maybe 75mph) and passed the guy behind me on the right. As they did I started to go into the right lane as well as my exit was coming up. I was half way in the right lane when I heard squealing tires under braking. I glance to my right to see the SUV barreling down on me. I was sure they were going to hit me so I turned the wheel to the left to go back into the middle lane. I turned to fast and the back end went out. It started to fishtail and I couldn't keep it straight. I managed to not hit any other cars but still crashed into the wall.

So the accident is your fault.
