    well last night was a real interesting night. went to my buddys house in the city for a little while but called it an early night since i had to work early this morning. drop my other buddy off and start heading home. come driving cast an intersection and some stupid zipper heads in a honda accord i think come flying up to the stop sign and end up halfway in the intersection. i veer out wide to avoid them and with it being 20 degrees out and a buncha snow and ice on the ground, lost control of my truck going around a 45 degree sweeping turn. by the time i got the truck straightened out i was heading right towards a house. slammed on the brakes and slid up the driveway clipping a car on the street and on the driveway that i managed to go in betweeen and smoked the tree in the front yard. needless to say those little bastards took off nad i didnt get a plate or nothing so its all on me. glass shattered all over me, cuts on my face and hands and mirror swung around and smacked me in the head i think since got a couple big bruises and scrapes on my head. was way more concerned about my truck then myself, thats my baby right there. without further adue, enjoy :drinkup:

    Wow, your lucky. I'd get to the body shop first thing monday. New door and half door lloks to be the biggest damage. Unless it damaged the roof, when the door got pushed in. Maybe they can get you fixed up quick.

    Sorry about your accident, glad you were not seriously injured.

    You really have your priorities screwed up IMO. The truck is steel, glass, and plastic. They make dozens of them everyday. It will be rusted away in a few years, and crushed.

    God made only one of you.

    That suck but at least your ok.

    I had the same thing happen the other day. I was coming up to a stop sign to turn left and this truck was flying up to the road and did not slow down wet pavement and I told my kids here we go and then he saw me and hit the brakes and we had to be inches from head on.
