i have a friend that got into a car accident today in providence, RI. the hood is bent like an upside-down V, the radiator pushed in, bumper busted, and a headlamp broken.
just curious since my friend doesn't know of any body shops. it's at one right now since she couldn't drive home, but yeah.

Body shops aren't my forte...
Many new car dealers have dropped in-house body shops due to the expense involved. Find an indy that gets a lot of dealer work subbed to them. They'll be good, though not necessarily the cheapest.
Plus, it is awfully easy to total a car for body damage these days, with electronics and airbags. My Olds got hit in the rear in July while stopped for a light, and I drove it away. There was no glass or lens breakage at all, yet the floorpan/unibody structure was kinked enough to total it. I drove it until the insurance company cut me a check - drove it to their local office, gave them the title and car, and picked up the check. Granted, full NADA retail value on it wasn't but about $4200...
