So, Friday night while heading home from my girlfriends house around 12am i was stopped at a red light in the inside lane of a four way intersection making a left. The next thing i know i hear screeching tires and as i look to my left i see a car loosing control while speeding into the turn to go the opposite way of me then jumped the curb and slammed right into me continued sliding after he hit me jumped the curb again and ended up back on the other side of the road going across two lanes and eventually stopping on the side walk. The truck shut off without any air bags deployed, so i turn on my hazards and jump out the truck and i was shocked by how much damage was done. I get on the phone right away call the police while the truck is stuck in the middle of the road with the whole rear suspension practically destroyed, rear axle twisted, drive shaft on the floor, and rim bent. I literally wanted to cry after thinking about how i just practically got the truck. The other person comes out his car limping and asked if i was okay with the stench of alcohol on his breath complaining that his throttle cable was stuck. From that point i didn't want to hear anything this guy had to say and come to find out the two witnesses that stayed back that he was talking to were telling me the same thing about him seeming drunk and when highway patrol came he had no insurance, suspended license, and no registration and all they could do is give him a few tickets. They didn't even bother to give him a DUI test or anything, i guess that 1.5 hrs they took to show up the guy sobered up enough for them not to think he was intoxicated.
What bugs me the most is that i got the truck November 1st 2012 and withing the two months of having it i put what is to me so much money into it. And now it just kills me knowing how much damage the truck received after just practically getting it and spending so much money on it, and not knowing if insurance will cover the aftermarket wheel, and suspension in rear.
