Thumbs up Recent Accident...

So Im getting off the freeway, making a left hand turn, when some juvenile decides to run a red light. I see him coming, slam on my brakes, and try to avoid the collision. Not in time. He hits me at about 20-25mph... ish. I try to move forward to pull of the road, but realize I'm stuck. I wave the guy to back up, he does. I pull into the nearest driveway and he parks behind me and gets out of his car. I hop out, ask if he is ok, and check out his 2000 Accord... wow, it's totally F'd. Bent up hood, smashed front bumper, crumpled fender, and a broken headlight. I'm thinking "great, my baby is JACKED!!!" I walk around to the passenger side to check out the damage. I would post a pic, but the only thing you would see is the same thing I saw.....

NOTHING!!! =)

I do, however, have to go take advantage of my Firestone Lifetime Alignment warranty. Oh no. There is also a tiny little scuff on the edge of my rim, which looks like nothing more than running into a curb. Not even a flat. How friggin sweet is THAT?!?!?

Toyota - Sittin' Pretty!
Honda - OWNED!!!!!

Just a heads up, if he hit the sides of your truuck, and there's no damage, he probably hit the wheel, like you said. I'd check out the axles and suspension components to be sure they aren't bent

I've been rear-ended twice in my taco w/ zero damage. First time by a Ford expidition doing about 20 (his plastic shit front end exploded) and a second time by a cheby silverado doing about 30 (his front end also exploded and his radiator was jacked).

I usually keep my ball in my receiver...it does good.
