    Zero damage :D

    Guy in a saturn I guess was driving too fast in the rain, heard sliding (his attempt to stop), and felt a bump. His hood was bent in pretty good and his light was destroyed.

    My truck has no damage at all, he just hit my tow bar, so it was slightly scratched, I checked the connection where the tow bar connects to the frame, no bending or anything. Thank goodness for the lift, otherwise he prob woulda hit my bumper.

    We had the cops come out, he asked if we wanted to file a police report, we said no, and went on our way.

    Yea, the crumpling on his hood probably softened it up alot, and spread out the impact.

    Glad nothing happened to your truck. Same thing happened to me with my first Tacoma, 16 year old girl nailed the trailer hitch, her hood, headlights, even radiator was smashed.......the truck, not a scratch.

    It's all about the people. I am happy everyone is OK. Keep in mind that cars can be replaced (yes, even the TACO).

    I could never replace MY tacoma. It wouldn't be the same. If someone ran into me I would have a hard time refraining from strangling them.
