    As the title says... She's a gonner.

    I let a girl drive my truck home... and this is what happened.

    I woke up in the back of an ambulance, covered in blood. I wasnt wearing my seatbelt (my bad), so my face hit the windshield. I got a concussion from that. My foot also got smashed and my ankle very badly burnt. That was friday night, I've still got a pretty nasty limp and my face is still really swollen.
    She was wearing her seatbelt and she ended up breaking a rib and puncturing a lung. and she bit thru her bottom lip (OUCH!)

    But compared to the damage on the truck, we are VERY LUCKY. Her Old man works for Toyota, he works for the crash test area... i had never met him before but the first thing he said was "thank god you weren't in an American car"...

    So here it is....

    Best I can tell is a car hit us on the right side, slamming us into the left side of the interstate divider, then we somehow shot straight across the interstate into a CEMENT FREAKIN WALL (aka truck ENDER)

    Also, my rental is a TUNDRA. and I hate it. Cant wait to get that insurance check and get back into another Tacoma... Lift it, and slap some tires underneath it. I loved my Taco.

    Don't be mad but I have to do it: That'll buff right out.

    Glad you and the chick are OK, aside from those injuries (they'll heal). That was obviously pretty bad freaking crash. Just get better and you'll get a new truck soon.
