I was in a fun car accident about a year and a half ago. it was at an uncontrolled intersection, I pulled up to the intersection, knowing that people tend to barrel through the intersection I slowed way down, saw a woman coming from my right so I stop to be nice and let her through, after she is through the intersection I start pulling forward, and I'm about halfway through when I suddenly realize that she has put her car in reverse and is now attempting to go in reverse through the intersection at about 20 miles an hour.
At that point there wasn't much for me to do except watch as she backs into me (I did honk, but she must not have been paying much attention.) She slams into me, the road was icy, so my little '86 Jetta goes spinning into a parked car. The woman had hit the B pillar of my car dead center on the driver's side, and when my car spun into the parked car, it hit the B pillar dead center on the passenger side. All 4 doors of my car were pinned shut, but I was able to kick out the front, passenger side door after a couple of minutes.
Turns out that the woman, who was in her 40s had both her daughter and mother in the car, and she had tried to back through the intersection because she had missed her turn, and obviously didn't bother looking behind her.
In Minnesota, fault for accidents is shared between drivers and the insurance companies pay out based on how much each driver is at fault. When I finished telling my story to the woman's insurance carrier, they didn't make a peep about it being even 1% my fault and they payed me more for my totaled car than I had originally paid for it.
