    So I got hit in a McDonalds parking lot. I'm driving parallel to the drive thru lane and some crackhead (white so maybe be meth? anyway) decides to pull out of the lane while I was driving by. I saw her in the corner of my eye (cause she hit me driver's side rear!) but there was nothing I could do, that hopeless slowmo feeling.

    So, I get out and I see her car first, and judging by her damage I think HOLY crap, my truck is going to be so messed up. Somehow, I only had some slight damage to my FJ rim.

    If you see any for sale, please let me know.

    Here is her car:
    Bumper is mostly on the ground, but still attached somehow. The water is from the cracked radiator.

    Here is my damaged rim. I could not find ANY other damage.

    Somehow it makes me feel better that her car had to be towed. She even asked me if I would tow her home.

    I'm going through my insurance since they are treating it as a her fault and they will collect from her insurance. I have a license plate number and an insurance card so hopeful they will be able to collect from someone.

    I would still have my truck checked over. You could have something tweaked.... like the rear axle. Or something you didn't see... just saying cause it happened to me since I failed to get a police report one time. I was younger and never involved in a wreck before, and the girl was rushing me saying everything was ok. Wish I would have got a police report. Now I just live with the little crease in my rear bumper, and look at it and remember to get a police report next time. :eek:

    Thats what I was thinking. She wanted a ride to YOUR home so she could try to convince you not to call your Ins.

    get your trucks front end checked out, you never know if something is bent, and buy a new rim. bill it all to the girls insurance.
