That sucks dude why on earth did the police take 1.5 hrs. to get there? Well look on the brighter side buddy maybe your insurance can get you a 2013.

The best thing is that you weren't injured, that's what matters the most. Material things come and go but body parts once they're messed up they're never the same. Thank god you're OK.

The air bags are not designed or programmed to go off in a glancing type of collision as this was.

nope, the only thing they said they could have arrested him on was the suspended license, but that's only if his license had already been confiscated. So he just told them he didn't know and gave up his license.

I don't think they were supposed to go off in this type of side swiping accident... I would want to get nailed by the side airbags in this situation... it wasn't enough inertia detected to go off

i understand where you are coming from. i have family in law enforcement, and know 5+ officers very and i know more than that not as well. but it must be one hell of a busy night for every officer in the responding area to be tied up.

depending on if it was in the city limits or in the county. you could have mutable departments that could respond. (i.e, county, city and high way patrol.) FHP should be able to go since itís on the roads. if itís in the city limits either FHP or the city could respond. iím going to say that itís likely there is about 5 to 7 officers that could respond. imho there has to be a lot going that is more important than a posable DUI crash for it to take over 1h for them to respond.



now idk if OP said that the guy maybe DUI when he first called 911 or not. if he did that should put a faster rush on it than if it was just a small late night small crash and everyone was ok.

Usually always a DUI field test in AZ on both parties...or obviously blood draw at a substation if the person requests.

I actually didn't say anything about DUI when i called, at that point i didn't even talk to the guy yet he was just standing outside his car in a panic and thats what i told them. Ambulance arrived at the seen within a few min to make sure everyone was ok though.

Thus making it not a high priority call...if you had said you suspect the other driver was a potential DUI, it would have possibly changed it.

Point is.... your alive...
I work EMS and have scraped too many victims off the road from the drunks....
all the dispack is run by computers these days.... even if he had mentioned DUI of there was no Body injury.... its low priorty
sad but true
the syestem is flawed from the inside out. why does it take more then once DUI or OUI for your driving privlidges to go away?
think about it...
Its low priorty because we as a society have made it so.....


Glad your alright dude keep us posted on what the insurance process is like
good luck

Glad to hear that you're ok, but unfortunate for your truck. Hopefully, your insurance would cover your aftermarket upgrades, but it's doubtful. You would be surprised as to what insurance companies would try to repair as opposed to writing it off as totalled. I owned a 2002 Nissan Frontier SVE before owning my Tacoma. I had a driver pull out in front of me causing me to collide with her. The impact twisted my frame and caused what seemed to be major damage. The insurance company wanted the repair shop to order a new frame and transfer as much from my truck over to the new frame. Luckily, the repair shop told the insurance company that they would refuse to do the work due to potential issues later down the road. Either way, I hope that things work out for you.

Too bad about the guy getting off the hook for that stuff. Hope your insurance works this out quickly.

I'm sure the officers had a good reason for taking that long. I know how it goes; boredom, boredom, boredom, and then every single person calls in at the same time. Its on dispatch to ensure they draw in from other departments to cover calls.

Worried about insurance covering your stuff? Why didn't you check with them BEFORE something like this happened?
