Don't feel bad if you've recently been in a fender bender. It's been going on since the automobile was invented. Western Colorado has seen its fair share over the years.

Daily Sentinel photographer Robert Grant captured images of countless fender benders over the years throughout Grand Junction and Western Colorado. For our purposes here, nothing of a morbid nature is included. These are photos of crashes where the parties involved were able to walk away.

Let this serve as a reminder to us to take it easy, and drive safe. Holidays are on the way, and let's make sure we all get to enjoy them.
