Default I Hit A Lake...Well Kinda...

So, driving to pick a work colleague up yesterday morning before work with a torrential downpour, to the point i could hardly see, I was doing 30/35mph on the expressway (limit is 50MPH) I got into the right lane as my exit was just over the next passover. Went up and over the passover and at the bottom was a miniature lake, I had no idea it was there until it was too late. It tore of the front bumper, some of the fender wells, and messed up my grille a little. I honestly had know idea my bumper was gone until some guy in a Honda Odyssey pulled up and showed me the bumper.

Insurance is already on it, and already talking about it being totaled. My mechanic, I work at a Dealership, said i have at least bent a rod, and possibly more. So thats a new engine, plus body repair/paint plus all the labor!!

Pics below.

Good to know it was just the car and you are ok, living in Mexico you see cars loosing control over puddles like that, and the quantity of puddles in the streets are incredibly high over here.

Good too see youre fine.

Im not too sure how it would work out, and if its worth doing, but you could probably file a lawsuit against the city/state for negligence. The streets should have proper drainage so that stuff like this doesnt happen. Luckily it wasnt worse and you werent harmed, but thats something they need to fix before somebody else is.
