Not so for the third and last one, not because the damage on my car was that substantial, but because the road maintenance company/organisation handed in a quite hefty claim.

On a rainy highway, a 24-year old passed by me with a speed of ~100mph, then skidded on the wet lanes.
Think the Fast&Furious pinball machine, his car hit the left and right guardrails three times before I could no longer steer clear and banged into him.
The right guardrail suffered an imprint the length and shape of the car, a 155mph BMW 330Ci.
Each time his car hit a guardrail, a wheel or an entire suspension strut flashed by me. (see if you can spot what is odd on the 2nd picture)

Hmmm - the petrol tank hanging down out of the carriage?

BTW - certainly glad that you managed to survive all of that mishap!!!

He would have had to turn the lights off when he finally stopped.

I had to pull him out of the car and hold his head/neck rigid for about 20 minutes till the ambulance arrived.
