Yep, that stinks. An argument in favor of having a nice car for evenings and weekends and a beater for commuting.
In 2005 I bought a Chevy Corsica at a farm auction for $1100 to use as a commuter. A year later I got rear-ended. The car was totaled and the other driver's insurance paid $2800. Another time I bought a 67 F250 for $1000 for my son to drive to high school. Thirty days later a meth-head ran a red light and hit him on the right side. No injuries, but luckily the druggie was insured and I got $2600. I kept the truck and sold parts off it for another $1000.
