    Wow, hope everyone is ok! Vehicle collisions are no fun! How bad is the damage?

    Yeah, accidents are no fun at all. I've had a couple of pretty big ones and you'll be shaken for a while...just get back into the drivers seat and keep on moving forward.

    after i drove a 93 yota into a tree, id wake up in the middle of the night thinking i was in the truck. I guess i hit my head on the ceiling harder than i thought. It was terrible i can only imagine what PTSD would be like.

    Vehicles are replaceable and repairable, people aren’t.

    Glad to hear you are alright.
