Hit a UPS truck head on today!

Some lady pulled out of McDonalds this morning and hit my rear tire which then sent me into a ups truck head on! Every one was ok. Of course she drove away with out any damage! Go figure! Looking at my truck you would think it might be a total! What got me was the damn thing started right up!

Damn, that sucks! I would have to agree, I think the insurance will total it. Did the center console come up like that on its own?

Bummer about the truck but it's great to see you're healthy enough to post! Did you file a police report? Make sure it mentions that you got rear-ended and pushed into traffic.

Sorry for your loss. Look at the bright side though, you're ok, and it sounds like a new Tacoma will be on order!

I will say this much... Every time somebody posts a thread like this, it makes me feel good about owning a Tacoma
