Not really sure what answer you are expecting but the real "No BS" answer is that you just became a driver that MOST carriers will bypass. Until the accident is completely gone from your MVR you may never get work as a driver by anyone by the lowliest company. You broke THE cardinal rule of getting involved in a rear end accident. These are seen more serious to companies that roll overs in most cases. Rollovers will end a drivers career rear end accidents will also. They see you as a threat to their company's very existence. One rear end accident with injuries could cost millions of dollars. While this accident you had was "minor" in your eyes, it was in a POV. The company can envision that you'd drive their equipment the same way and there are thousands of drivers out there who do not have this type of accident on their MVR. You may want to keep your CDL and not let it go, but by the time you are free and clear of this accident. You just may want to find something as close as you can to the industry but not driving.

Good Luck
