    Default third accident in my truck yesterday.

    I've had my truck for under two years and ive been in three "accidents" with it, ive never been in that many accidents with my other vehicles total...ok on to what happened. i was making a U-turn at an intersection that gave me the green arrow and a kid ran the red light and hit the front passenger corner of my truck, bounced off of me like i was a brick wall skidded across the right lane, shoulder, and down into the ditch and almost into the parking lot that was there. the kid was going pretty fast and had 3 other occupants in the vehicle with him. i was furious right away and thankfully my buddies house was right there and he came right out to calm me down and get on his radio to call the accident in (he's a volunteer fire fighter) which made it so the police responded quicker. No one was hurt which was good, but their car was pretty bad, and hopefully the driver learned to pay more attention when driving. Two of the passengers got out of the car right away and took off to the gas station that was about half a block away. when i left those to kids were still in the back of the squad car. I bet they learned that you do not leave the scene of an accident lol. my truck will need a new bumper and and a passenger wheel, it is still drivable, just ver frustrating...

    Hey Sgt....
    That sucks dude! "hit the front passenger corner of my truck, bounced off of me like i was a brick wall " What condition is your truck in?? Any real damage to the front end? Well, maybe bad things happen in three's and now you will be accident free for a long time... Did you suffer whiplash or any sore muscles? Hope your okay..

    from the way the truck is handleing it doesnt seem like anything other than the bumper and wheel got damaged....i feel fine my truck didnt move much..the sound of the car hitting my truck i honestly thought and IED went off for a spilt second until i realized i had been hit. the vehicle is still drivable. i took a bit of the car with me, between the rim and the rubber of the tire its being removed tomorrow, the tire is holding air so im not to worried about it, but i dont want to pull it out myself just incase its holding in the air.

    Glad that your doing okay. Well, I figured that the guys car got a alot more damage, if he went through the red light at full speed, and hit your beast of a Silverado..I am glad that no-one got hurt. Keep us posted if there is any damage to the vehicle.

    Sarge that does suck, glad to hear you are okay. But man I would have been furious also, people just dont pay attention when driving. Hopefully you can get everything fixed and then cross your fingers and hope there won't be a 4th accident

    I must say I'm sorry for your misfortune. It very good that nobody was hurt or worse. We all love our trucks, but it really comes down to the fact that they are just a truck. It's a material think that can be fixed. That's why we all carry insurance. What can't be replaced is a life. I'm glad you made it through it so you can continue to be a active member with us here on GMTC!!!!!
