What Would You Do if a Car Wash Attendant Crashed Your Jeep into a Wall?



This is the question one man in Abuja had to ask himself when this happened to him.

According to online reports, the owner of the jeep parked it at a car wash to be cleaned.

Shortly after he left, the men who worked at the car wash reportedly heard that some FCT environmental taskforce personnel were heading to their location. One of the men is said to have panicked and jumped into the vehicle in an attempt to escape the premises.

Apparently, the man didn’t have much experience driving and shortly after going a short distance, he lost control of the car and subsequently crashed into a wall.


What would you do if you were the owner of the car?

    I don’t have a clear cut reaction to this, until it happens and I pray it doesn’t.
    Funny enough, I’ve reacted to a lot of terrible situations calmly, very calmly.

      Sometimes, some situations just override your anger. You quickly understand that anger can not solve them. You accept fate. You gently accept the situation and console yourself that it would have been worse than that. You use faith in God for more provisions to erase your pain. And you move on.

  4. sell all he has to fix the car

    He should sell all he has to fix the car
    1. He only heard about the task force, it wasnt verified
    2. The taskforce (if truly they were heading there) must have been on a mission to arrest the illegal business operators and probably confiscate their equipment The customer’s car cant be arrested, towed or taken away as FCT task force don’t even tow cars in the first place.

    For him to do that, he must sell all he has and fix the car

    I would have the men arrested for theft, and make sure they stay there until they pay for the damages to the vehicle. I don’t care if they have to hand over all the profit they have ever made in that car wash, or get their wives to go from door to door begging for money. Next time they will think twice before doing something that stupid again.

      This is so true and very much irritating. When my car was hit, everyone and their momma came to beg me, telling me not to be angry ( I just bought the car!!). This old woman came out of nowhere and started begging me, I felt so bad and embarrassed because of all the begging. I left with my battered car, cried all the way to the mechanic shop.

      Ahhhhhhh!!!!! That’s was how 2 different people reversed into me last Sunday, I went mad. I had to ask myself what I did to deserve that. Lol. Twice same spot, same day.
      The first was a man with a very nasty wife.
      The second was a young dude who begged and begged till I was feeling like the wicked witch who just won’t forgive. I had to let go. I was pissed

    Hubby’s car has been smashed 2x by “responsible-looking’ people. They agreed to pay half but never did.
    This boy will flee Abuja if he has to.
    Maybe an option is free car washes for the rest of his life. That is after u fix your car yourself. Lol

    Fellow Nigerians…a 4X4 is known as an SUV: Sport Utility Vehicle…. ‘Jeep’ is an SUV BRAND as much as the G wagon, Range Rover or Land Cruiser also are. Its just bizarre! Just like we call all noodles Indomie when we still have Honeywell, Golden Penny etc!! Anyways back to the story..i hope the dude is insured.

    This will be a very difficult situation shaa. But all the same as the bible says in our Lord’s prayer, ‘Forgive us our trespass as we forgive those who trespass against us’. Cause you may find yourself in that kind of situation & you are the one begging to be forgiven.

    Funny enough nothing wen you go do unless you fit use person blood pay the car repairer. Not only will you lose money repairing the car, you will lose time (your most important resource) when one baggar will be coming to your house to beg you everyday.

    With God’s strength I will take the car and go sort it out myself. There’s not much the guy that crashed the car can do, judging by his profession, I doubt he can financially afford to fix the car. It’s not exactly a small dent in the car. However, I will get the police involved, get him to sign a contract which will detail how much he must pay into my account every month. Who am I kidding, knowing how Nigerians are he will probably make a run for it after the 1st payment.

    The car sustained a bad front end damage, doubtful it is repairable, and if so, may end up being resold immediately to some unsuspecting buyer. The person should be found and charged though, isn’t driving off in a car that is not yours considered theft? If he heard authorities were coming he could have ran or grabbed a I feel bad for laughing. He didn’t even get far with his getaway Thank goodness nobody was hurt.

    I’d calmly get his information and began setting up payment arrangements, no need to go crazy, it was an accident. But IT HAS TO BE PAID FOR, so let’s get it done.

    You can able to claim for the big amount when your car met the accident with the jeep and it crashed in the wall.
