    I was driving my daughter to a school function when a car on a side street came full throttle from a stop sign and plowed into my truck. I am HIGHLY pissed right now! The pics are crap because of the lack of light, but here are a couple of her car and my truck.
    Fortunately it is driveable but hers is DOA.

    Thanks and yeah, we're fine. I'm just highly pissed that's all. She got into a fight with her boyfriend and drove off in a fit. I'm lucky in the fact that nobody was seriously injured and that I'm able to drive the truck. She just got this car two days ago because she totaled her other one! Can you believe that?!?

    Thats ironic....the U.S. makes it too easy to get a drivers license and it shows in our accidnet and insurance rates.
    I'm not real big on following European leads on things, but they do better than us in the arena of issuing DLs.

    cdh, glad you're alright. I'd be ticked too. People like her should get their licenses revoked.

    ...and people gripe that we need more gun control...uhuh...how about some driver's license control

    I bet her Insurance company loves her...did she have any?
    Was this a Teenage Driver by chance? Glad everyone survived okay.
    I hope the Boyfriend has the sense to end any kind of relationship with this idiot.

    Luckily for me, they're fully covered by Allstate. She's 19. I was so livid that whenever she came over to me to exchange information, I just told her to back off because I was too pissed to talk to her. She, in front of a couple of witnesses, admitted she hit me which shows her inexperience and stupidity.

    The last time I got hit, I had to fight tooth and nail just to get my truck back to the way it was. What I'm worried about is that since my truck is a 2003 model, it's already almost 6 years old. I'm hoping the damage isn't so much that they'll try to total it instead of trying to fix it. I can't afford a truck payment right now.

    Man, I've been there before!

    I just got off the phone with the Allstate claims center and I can already tell I'm going to have to fight for some things. I shouldn't have to pay a DIME since it wasn't my fault. I'll have to wait till they get the police report.

    Glad you and your daughter are all good.
    Had something similar happen to me a couple of years ago on my birthday. I was driving home around 4:30 in the afternoon on a three lane section of road going through town and slowing down as I came up to a stop light there was only one car sitting in my lane at the light but the other lanes were chocked full then all of the sudden there was a gap in other two lanes and this girl in a brand spanking new Tiberon gunned it out of a parking lot through the gap and right into me. I was only going about thirty but she must have got her little sports car going fast because my mountaineer was pushed into the center lane. She totaled her car and mine. No one was seriously hurt I had a cut up face from the air bag and tweeked my shoulder and they were all fine too. She got her's in the end because she had let her insurance run out and then she gave the officer a fake ID because it was her third accident. So not only did she lose her car but she got arrested later on too for lying to police.
    I am still pissed to this day though because I loved that SUV and I got it on such a great deal that I couldn't replace it if I wanted too, and because it was used I didn't get enough money from the insurance to get anything close the shape it was in because I took really good care of it.
    The police report really helped with the insurance, once they had that I was golden I didn't have to fight with them or anything because the offficer writing it was ironclad in the statement saying it was not my fault. He also mentioned that the other driver had lied to police and that was the end of it I got my check the next day.

    Good to hear there were no serious injuries. With an '03, you probably won't come out of this whole. I had an older car that was in really good shape that got whacked by a girl goign too fast on a wet road. I got what they said it was worth, which didn't make much of a dent when I replaced it with a new (to me) car.

    I knid of live in fear about this type of situation, since i also have an '03, with about 53k on it. Great shape. If it gets totalled, I'll take it in the shorts.

    Best of luck!

    I took it to a body shop I usually go to just to get a rough estimate and ask a couple of questions. He estimated the damage at roughly $6000. He said that if the damage totals 65% or more of the value, they total it. That would be $8k so I came in almost $3k short of that and that's a relief!
