asked by on

I was in an accident about a week ago I have not driving the car since but when I drove the car home after the accident my back driver side wheel felt like it wanted to come off. It would also fishtail a lilttle. When I looked at the tire I noticed a crack. So my question today is did I crack my rear axle? Thank s
My car has an automatic transmission.
