    Well just wanted to post a picture or two of my truck. Well pictures of what it looked like unitll 520 this afternoon when I got rearended at 55mph. Luckily everyone walked away from the wreck alive exept for the two vehicles. I was in my 1996 dodge ram 2500 and i got rearended by a 97 toyota camary. The other driver is lucky to be alive. Here is a picture of my truck before the accident. Will get updated pictures of the truck and other car tommorow.
    I will miss this truck greatly but will be moving on to a newer 2500 or 3500 with a cummins.

    That's too bad. Glad to hear you're okay. :salute:

    On the bright side, now you have insurance money coming your way. All of a sudden, my neck hurts like hell! ;)

    no my air bag didnt go off here are some pictures of my truck wasnt able to get pictures of the car that hit me because it went to another garage. The other cars airbags went off however. Thinking that for my airbags to go off I might need to be hit in the front?

    last one hopefully I can find the other car and get some pictures of it. I talked with the tow truck driver today and he said he was looking at the car before he towed it and he could see red paint from my truck on the cars windshield where it shattered it. I would see the kid that rear ended me was extremly luck to be alive.

    Yea I have seen it around campus before. Doesnt look like I will be getting anything new anytime soon. The kid driving wasnt the owner of the car so the cop ran the plates and gave me the owners contact info. With further investigation he no longer owns the car the kid who was driving has a girlfriend whos dad owns the car and is in florida with no way to contact. The mom of the kid who hit me says she has no responsibility because he is 17 ( I thought you had legal responsibility untill 18) Then to top it off I only had liability on my truck because I was paying over $1800 just for that so it wasnt worth putting collision on it when after 2 years you would have spent more on insurance then the truck is worth. Then the uninsured motorist clause in my insurance they are telling me only covers the parts of insurance you have since I dont have collision they wont help out at all. Really sucks cause I dont have much money for a new truck. So basically it looks like I am going to try to go after the kids girlfriends parents to get anything if I can get in contact with them. I think I am going to get hosed on this deal. Work hard the past 5-6 year busting my ass to buy a truck I loved and it gets taken away by some unresponsible scum sucking dink who could care less about his actions and will never amount to anything. Sorry for rambeling on but its been an extremly frustrating day.

    That really stinks about your truck and the insurance and all....Have you considered talking to a lawyer? Most offer free initial consultation. I'm not buying the "She's not responsible because he's 17" bit! I got hit one time when I was young and dumb and settled for change compared to what I should have gotten....don't make the same mistake! I know you need a truck fast but don't get in a hurry with this, you'll be sorry.

    We are planning on getting advice but first we have a couple more odds and ends to clean up before I settle to that. As much as I want a new truck I am not going to rush into it. I am going to the police station first thing tommorow when they open. Hoping to try to get some more info. Have them run the vin and plates again and see if I can get in contact with the "real" owner before I go talk to a lawyer. But I am sure that this is going to be settled in court. Hopefully I can get him nailed for driving an unregistered uninspected vehicle. At least make his life a little miserable for hitting me. I dont mean to be nasty but I am more than a little bitter at the situation.
