Lyft Driver Needs Help After Crash

Raised by 11 people in 25 months
Calling all rideshare drivers and Lyft fans! I'm a Lyft driver who was struck by a hit-and-run driver Halloween night, in Seattle. Both my passenger and I suffered minor injuries, but it's my ride that I'm worried about. Read on:

Lyft provides insurance to cover drivers in this sort of circumstance, but that insurance carries a $2500 deductible- an amount I cannot possibly afford. Reason: this same car was hit by a drunk driver on July 31st of this year, and my savings was exhausted paying for that previous accident! Talk about a mean streak of luck, right?

She's a good car, propelling me for over 2000 rides and protecting me and my passengers through two nasty crashes now. What the picture doesn't show very well is that both doors no longer fit properly, and there are large gaps around them that let the rain in. It's not going to be just a cosmetic fix.

Fellow rideshare drivers and Lyft users (or just plain ol' nice folks), I need a hand. If you could spare a few bucks to help me cover this deductible so I can get my baby back on the road and keep food on my table, I would be most grateful! I'm a pro, a safe and dependable driver with thousands of rides and a 4.9 star rating. I take this very seriously, and want to keep providing top-notch service in Seattle.

Sometimes as we move through our work-a-day lives, someone or something will come along and knock us down, for no good reason. Happens to folks every day. If you've been there yourself or know someone that has, please pledge a few bucks and give me a hand back up. Every little bit will help, and every cent will go towards getting me and my car back on the road again. Thanks!
