Mourn the loss of my '07, welcome my '09

On February 28th, 2009 a Laurel, MD cop ran a red light and T-boned my taco (2007 DC 4x4 TRD Sport, Silver Strk Mica) in the right door. I never saw him (narrow street he was on), and I had a green light. His cruiser pushed me out of my lane into a utility pole. Truck was totalled by insurance. Check my gallery for pics. I'm ok, walked away with only a seat-belt bruise. That truck did such a great job of protecting me, I just HAD to get another one. Say hello to my 2009 4x4 DC TRD Sport in magnetic gray! Got the tube side-steps and bed extender on this one! Also, just put a TRD cue-ball style shift knob on it, looks great. Pics of wrecked '07:


My new 2009:

Glad everything turned out ok, and you weren't hurt to bad.

Local police, possibly PA State Troopers ran a red light a few miles from my house years ago killing one of my brothers best friends sister.

I was inches from being another one with San Francisco police. I had the right of way at a blind 2-way stop intersection. I headed into it at 23MPH when a cruiser with 2 cops in it came blazing through their stopsign doing about 35MPH-no lights, no siren. I hit the brakes in time to be missed by about 2-3 feet! They stopped short and the cop in the passenger side stuck his head out his window giving me the stinkeye. Since it was 4:00Am, I was 4 blocks from work, and no witnesses I figured I better swallow my anger and move on so I did. The look from that cop told me how it would've went down otherwise.
PS-no accountability with the police dept?? Were they on a call?

Wow man. Good deal on escaping harm (more or less).

That's the EXACT truck I've been looking at. Sooo envious of you right now. Looks really good!

Thanks for all the kind words guys! They are really safe trucks. They're very well made, and quite solid. I loved my '07, but I like the '09 even more. While the improvements aren't huge, the little tweaks here and refinements there add up to a really nice truck.

Yes, the driver's side did. The passenger side did not as I had no passengers.

hope the pd paid for the new one and all the specs to match it to the 07. If not I'm sure its something that a trip to a lawyer would cure. Def settle out of court and get everything you want, haha.
