I didn't say it was a single vehicle accident. Don't put words into my mouth. I wrote it was a single vehicle INCIDENT.
I've actually had this happen to me before, so sadly I can speak from experience. When I was 17 and driving my second new-to-me car, I noticed the brake light was on, so I reached down to pull the brake lever as it was down by my left foot on my previous car... unfortunately, it wasn't on this car, but the hood release was.. so my hood opened at 80 km/h (scared the crap out of me!) and it destroyed the hood and shattered the windshield.
Unless ICBC has changed things in the last 20 years.. it's considered a collision claim. In fact, checking ICBC's website "That's where Collision coverage helps you. It covers repairs to your vehicle if it's damaged in a crash, no matter who was at fault. "
