It was the day after Hurricane Lane on the freeway going over a bridge. Hood popped open and the hinges tore off. Brackets came apart from hood and the padding tore off. Hood is scratched and warped. Passenger front fender has deep scratches. The washer cable is the only thing kept the hood from flying into moving car lanes.
