How is it that the parents of the kid aren't liable for this?

it should be, had my wife talked to the mom. my wife just grabbed her food and went home, she had already had a long day with my daughter at the hospital getting some tests, they were both very tired and cranky.
had i been there, it would have been different, but its water under the bridge.

dropped the truck off yesterday at the body shop, they figured they would get to it on monday, maybe have it done by next friday, probably monday tho, all depends on how soon they get the parts they need.
ended up renting a little SLE canyon crew cab. not a bad little truck, but its no sierra.

Im in the same situation right now, I was driving home from pt two days ago and Im in the fast lane on the interstate and traffic comes to a sudden stop, I had to stop pretty quickly, as I stop I look in my rearview mirror and see a ton of smoke and I get nailed in the rear end which causes me to hit a Chevy 2500 diesel in front of me. Turns out some girl ran into the back of a dodge at about 65mph and caused the pileup, there were five cars involved. But heres the damage that got caused to my truck, mainly from hitting the heavy duty hitch on the back of the 2500, the 2500 wasnt even phased.

As bad as it is at least it's only paint and sheet metal. Unfortunately to many parents allow their kids to run in streets and parking lots then automatically blame the driver when something happens.
I was driving through my neighborhood in my work truck (Peterbuilt, long frame tandem axle, w/30' box) not long ago when a lady and her 3 little kids popped open the street side doors and jumped out of their Suburban into the street right in front of me, the lady gave me a nasty look and yelled something I didnt catch, she basically pissed me off, about half a block down a police officer was watching a school crossing so I stopped and complained to him about the driver, he asked me if I was willing to follow up and go to court if it ever got that far so I said yea, he went to the ladies house and issued her 1 ticket for opening her vehicle door into traffic and 3 tickets for endangerment to a child. Normally I wouldnt waste the time it took to follow through but these little brats are always in the street and if you honk at them they flip you the bird even when the parents are outside with them, which isnt often, hopefully this will teach the parents to keep their kids out of the street. I'd hate to see them have to learn this lesson because one of the little brats got run over.

It seems to me as our cities and towns gets more crowded ... these are happening more and more. Makes me want to move to the country.
