    So this is the idiot who hit me:
    [​IMG]
    He hit me going about 25+ mph and slammed directly into my door. I watched him the whole time in awe. I couldn't even hit the horn.
    A motorcycle cop pulled up not even 10 seconds after the wreck. I didn't even get out of the car until my dad got there. My front driver door is completely screwed (there is a gap at the top about an inch wide), and my rear left door won't even open. I'm glad i took my step bars off as they probably would've gone more harm then good. I had to back the truck out of the middle of the road and could feel the front left wheel wobbling.

    Lame! Seems a lot of Tacomas have been involved in accidents lately. Looks fixable though.

    This makes the last two silver DC's. But yeah guys, it's pretty scary when you look over and see a vehicle speeding directly at you.

    Sorry! Nice to see that these trucks are pretty safe. I haul around my 2 year old and its nice to have piece of mind with the new purchase.

    Don't like that it looks like he hit your front wheel.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    I can see I better seriously BEEF up the sides of my truck with large pipe that stick out to the edge of the wheel flare. This is just getting stupider and stupider.[​IMG]

    Not shit besides the blame game. He actually had the balls to say I pulled out in front of him! The cop asked both occupants who was driving and neither would say so he had to come asks ME who was driving.
