Another Rear-End Collision

My daughter was sitting still in my 2008 near St. Pete this evening and was rear-ended by a mini-van. She wasn't hurt, but it blew the right rear tire, bent the wheel, got the right rear fender, tail light, center bumper, and lower right side of the hatch. That's what I see in the pics she sent. (BTW, the SS BMS bumper looks fine. Thanks Paul ) The left front of the Pontiac Mini-van looked like it could be worse.
She got tossed up over a curb and onto the raised median. I don't know if there's any suspension or underneath damage from that.
The car was flat-bedded to a storage lot in Tampa, but will be moved as soon as I determine where to send it. First choice for convenience is SC Clearwater, second would be SC Tampa. Anybody have any experience with the body shops at either dealership?
They were closed when this happened, but I'll call them in the A.M.

Sorry this happened, hope that your daughter has no lasting problems (or temporary ones for that matter) from this. Best wishes for speedy resolution!

Thanks guys.
She said she feels ok. I hope it doesn't hit her too hard tomorrow.
Ironically, she was on her way home from the chiropractor when it happened!

If it was the Apple Crate, I'd really be singing the blues!
Good luck this weekend!

Sigh... that is a shame
At least you did the right thing by keeping calm instead of raising your blood pressure.

Only this one, but there is another recent thread that's been going around from someone who had more than one. There are others too. It just seems like a rash of them.
