We returned home from grocery shopping and as we were bringing groceries in, my wife could smell something burning. She thought at first it was the neighbors burning trash but then noticed that the smell was coming from the garage. She seen smoke coming from under the hood. She opened the hood and seen small flames. She quickly extinguished the fire. I pulled the car outside to investigate and as I was disassembling the cars front lighting system, the fog light electrical system was melted and the plastic on the larger light fixture was melted also. I did take photos of the damage.

I was coming up the street and could not see the light due to poor visibility. The sun was in my eyes. I didn't not see the red light and ran through it hitting an older Jeep. I was going between 35-45 mph and my air bags did not deploy ever though it was a head on collision. The car needs the whole front half replaced. The bumper cover, actual bumper, bumper absorber, bumper support, headlights, headlight bracket, fog lights, hood, and both fenders. I suffered a concussion and severe bruising from hitting the steering wheel.
