My Truck Was in a Wreck Today

Truck was in a wreck today, wife was driving but OK. Truck got mangled pretty good, but if it was not built the way it was built, she probably would have been severely injured. Truck is rebuildable the other vehicle, an Explorer is going to the salvage yard. The woman ran a red light (she told Renee that she did not know she had to stop), while texting on a cell phone and only got a ticket. She hit the truck in the front and spun around to get the bed of my truck, speed limit there is 20 MPH.

If my wife would have been driving the Balt, she probably would have been severely hurt or worse, and the car would definitely be gone.

pics up soon, going to the tow yard to get info for the insurance company to start the claim.

Another fine example of the dangers of cell phones.

Wow, that sucks, sorry to hear. I think the other driver deserves more than just a ticket.

Bad thing is the woman was unisured, speeding and ran the light. And after looking at the pics, I think the damage may be worse than what I thought. Looks like a body mount is busted.
The other vehicle:

The insurance may total the beast. That was the first question he asked"is it totaled". I told him I dont think so. If it wasnt built the way I built i, maybe. He sounded dumbfounded, cant wait to talk to him Monday after he sees the truck.

In the pic of the crushed fender, the vehicle next to the truck is an Expedition, drunk driver, hit one of the marking monuments at one of the post gates. The Expedition has no front end left, engine is in the truck, literally.
