    I am really tired now so this will be quick and I should have pics within a few days to follow.
    I was driving home tonight down a 4 lane main road near ccsu after hanging out with my brother, cousins and their friends. I was driving the speed limit 45mph because I had a cop about 10 car lengths behind me. As I am driving I notice this fucktard losing control sliding all over the road about 400 feet ahead. He must have been doing atleast 65 or more. It looked like he had regained control but I was wrong. All the sudden he is sliding sideways towards me ( I am in the furthest right lane)I move over as far as I could which was about half way into the next lane over. I couldn't move all the way over since there was oncoming traffic. The car hit me really hard, a nice front end stuff, and then he dragged all the way down the passengers side of my truck. My air bags went off, the front end is crushed, the passengers side tires were all off of the rims, my rear axle was pretty much under my rear bumper. The cars trunk and rear fender well were in front of my truck. I think I might have ran over part of the car. Everything happened so quick, I don't know what really happened to his car. I didnt even check out the other car. The front seat of the had broke, and they had to extricate all 3 of the passengers. Last I heard they were all alive but were in rough shape. I was able to walk right out of my truck, but was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons. I was the only one in my truck. The car was about 200 ft behind my truck. I really do believe from 45mph that my truck didnt move at all from the point of impact.
    The hospital was hell and ambulance ride was hell too. I think I am in more pain from that fucking neck brace and the emt not properly straping me down so I was sliding all over the stretcher. I was in there for 3 hours not being able to move at all. They exrayed my neck and I am fine. They just said I am going to be sore for a few days. The hospital experience was worse than the accident itself.
    A friend was talking with the cop who witnessed the accident, and he was thanking god that I was in front of him or else he would have be in the accident. I guess this is the only time I was glad I had a cop behind me. I was not asked one question by the police about what happened. The cop that was behind me was very shaken up also. This had to have been the scariest thing I have ever been in. You just have no control and it happens so quick. I just thank god that I wasn't seriously hurt and that no one (so far) in the other car died.
    It just pisses me off that some fucking asshole fucking around on a public road could affect me so much. His bad decision fucks me over with nothing to drive until I can pickup a rental, incoveinencing me, my family and friends, and now I might not be able to have as nice of a vehicle due me not being able to have a nice down payment. JUST THINK BEFORE YOU FUCK AROUND ON PUBLIC ROADS, if something happens it doesn't only affect you but it affect a lot of people.
    For all the Chevy and fullsized truck haters, Chevy can build a safe truck. I was lucky not to have a scratch on me. They were saying if I was in a smaller vehicle I would have been dead or seriously hurt. I need to decide if I want to get the Silverado SS, 1500hd, 2500, 1500z71, or an Avalanche.
    Man I loved that truck, anyone that knows me knows I took care of it and got pissed off at even the slightest scratch. I was very anal with that truck. Oh well shit happens.

    Cliff notes
    some fuck lost control at a highrate of speed
    he slide into my truck, totaling it, and fucking up him and his friends
    Now we have pissedoffjeef.

    let me be the first to say... HOLY SHIT man.

    I'm extremely glad you were ok and I hope everyone in the other car turns out to be ok and turn out to be wiser for the wear.

    This is exactly why I'm done with street racing and other retarded unnecessary crap on public roads.

    Glad your ok, :) sorry about your truck, :angry: and yes...trucks can be good and bad...I'm from a family raised in trucks in NM...where we actually use them for truck...but I hate the glorified SUV/Truck people in the big cities that are afraid to even put a load of something in them...or consider a speedbump off-roading. :ph34r:


    Good luck...and hope the insurance will cover everything. :huh:

    I'm also really glad that you are okay. Sorry about your truck Jeef.

    I also agree with Blanco that I hate on the trucks and SUV's that are driven like sportscars. There should be lowered posted speedlimits on the highways for them. I even feel that on a multi lane highway, they shouldn't even be allowed in the leftmost passing lane (actually cruise control shouldn't be used in that lane also). When these trucks speed, there is just so much more momentum created. Saw an H2 going 95 mph last summer in CT on I-84 and I'm STILL pissed that there were no cops around to nail his ass as he wove around cars and a school bus on the road. There are oo many soccer moms that can't drive or park buying SUV's and even the guys driving these large vehicles are not even using turn signals.



    <----- Still won't buy a truck or SUV for daily driving. I'm not going to live in fear on the roads and buy a gas guzzler. And if we are all in large vehicles on the road, then the protective advantage you are currently feeling in your truck would be lost.... :ph34r: Haha and what about the elderly shrunken people driving in big American boat-sized sedans? I find them scary too.

    Glad to hear your truck stood up to the challenge of protecting you.

    Hopefully that nice leather interior you had installed will increase the value of your truck to help you out a bit with a down payment on a new truck. Kinda not a bad time to be looking either, I'd look for a leftover '04 model as you can probably snag a good deal on one of those.

    Must have been some of those wacky Iraqi drifters! But seriously though, sorry you had to go through it.

    Here is the list of damage. This is a 2004 with 15k on it that was in very good condition. It needs a paint job, new passengers side doors, new bed, complete front end, the frame is bent, the frame split up front, a lot fo the engine compartment was damaged, the headlights are fucked, i think a rim is bent, the tries are damged, the air bag went off, the leaf springs are broken, the axle snapped off of the leaf springs, and the driveshaft is fucked. It was worse than I expected. My mom and I were saying I was lucky I didn't get hurt worse. I will have pics up in a few days.
    It was a ford escort or contor that hit me. It was hard to tell from the trunk of his car that was left in the back of my truck.

    No gap insurance. I have enough equity in the truck to not have to worry about it.
    Now I have to decide what kind of car or truck I want to get.

    I'm sorry this luck has been bestowed upon you.

    I'm glad you're still with us, and hopefully everything turns out for the better.

    Wow. I'm glad you're ok, and that nobody was killed. I've been T-boned while standing still from someone doing 60+, so I know how you feel.

    Wow Jeef. Glad to hear that you are okay. Just remember, its just a material item that people take for granted. Your life is much more invaluable than a piece of metal...no matter how much you care about it.

    I am glad I am ok. It is just a bitch dealing with Enterprise to get my rental car. Those fuckers keep saying they will call me back but I am still without a car. From what I told the adjuster today he thinks they will total it. The appraiser will be looking at it later this week. Hopefully I will be all set, and it won't be a long drawn out battle.
    Noah, if I get a reasonable value for the truck, I will be looking into the SS. Hopefully I can find a new SS. I think the only dealer in CT that has one is Harte Chevy and I absolutely refuse to buy anything from them. I will probably end up buying the Sierra Sport Package.

    If you want, I can get you a deal on an SS down here in Norwich. I have a buddy that works at Don Mallon Chevrolet. If they dont have one there, they'll get you one. :)

    I have the GMS discount so I get the best deal on Chevys. Is the 05 SS out yet? I haven't seen or heard much about it.
