CRASHED MY TRUCK!!!! NOOOO!!!!

well listen to this load of crap here guys.

driving on sunday right? alls good until i start to turn left on a through road (i.e. i have right of way) and there is a guy that is going to go across the road from my left to my right. well right as soon as i get in front of him he floors it into my drivers tire/front left bumper. . well i end of running onto this guys hood.

so heres the kicker! get ready for this! i bet you guys never heard this one! he was a believed to be illegal mexican with no license driving his fathers car. his father has insurance for the car but the person driving didnt.

so im sitting in my truck writing my info down and i hop out and the car is gone. so i take my broken *** truck and drive around my neighborhood looking for the car (i've seen it in my neighborhood before).

find the car. call the cops. the guy gets arrested.

so this leaves me sitting at home with a broke a** truck.

rim might be bent. broke drivers fog light and fog light bezel. bent bumper which in turn bent my headlight mount and broke my headlight as well as possibly bending my hood.

drivers side trailing arms are bent like a MOTHERF*#(&(@&#(ER. the jerk of him hitting my wheel blew out all the seals on my powersteering pump and my steering stabilizer. ripped off my mudflap.

it also may have bent my whole differential. im thinking the tube might be bent. my frame might even be bent. who knows!

all in all. he may have completely F'd my truck up!

o well. it is what it is you know? heres the real kicker though. call their insurance company. they say they wont pay because the son was driving, not the father (the father is the one insured).

SO NOW I HAVE TO PAY MY $1000 DEDUCTIBLE AND POSSIBLY MY HOSPITAL BILL!!!!!!

believe me when i say im taking this MO FO to civil court and gettin my money back. he made me miss 3 days of work with no pay as well.

this just sucks ***. im sure its happened to some of you. im just so angry that my baby is broken!

Damn, sorry to hear that Erik. I guess my deer accident on Tuesday isn't so bad.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Sorry to hear about this Erik. Take a deep breath and contact your insurance company and see what your options are. Truck can be fixed, don't worry. I got a brand new frame put under mine 2 years ago, 33 days without my truck so I feel your pain brother!!

If the accident isn't your fault why do you have to pay the full deductable?

Glad to hear you are all right Erik. Like was said before, trucks can be fixed. Just take a deep breath and relax. Then, write down everything that happened and call your insurance company. Take it one step at a time brother.

because the other guys insurance wont cover anything. so from what im hearing there might be two ways to go about the deductible. #1- i pay and they reimburse me #2- they just tack it on to the amount that my insurance pays but i think this option would make my rates go up. idk yet. im just gonna let it play out and see what happens. as long as my truck gets fixed i really dont even care

I have had two accidents similar to this, both were illegals no lic. no insurance, ran, but I am able to read a license plate as they try to run away, one left there plate in my fender as they left. I dont know why but I have had two people role into me in the last 6 months once at a red light and hit a car dolly I was towing (hard enough to push me with my brakes on, after both of us were waiting a good 45-50sec at a red light) onther the other day guy in a Benz S500 inches up try'n to pay at a drive though window at in-n-out my WD hitch smashed his bumper,grill, and hood. But he scratched my powder coat on the hitch...

I feel for ya, I have had several like yours, I just hope that your state has better laws concerning the illegals than Cali then your insurance will sue him and nothing out of your pocket.
