Please bare with me, I'm using my iPad for this, thanks guys!
So here's the story,
I was driving down a little country road, honestly not much bigger than my truck. I was going around what we call a "blind corner" which is practically a turn in the road with overgrown trees which disables the ability to see the other side so you have no idea what's coming.. Anyways I was going around the corner and this idiot in a Tundra comes flying around the corner at 50 (I was probably going 5-10) and forced me to swerve to the right since that was the only way to go or I could have just went head to head and totaled my truck.
So since I went to the right I found a nice ditch that had about a 3 foot drop off and my truck was exactly centered... My entire passenger side was under water and with the weight of the truck heavier on that side it slowly sunk into the moist ground. Sadly the dude in the tundra saw me fly into the ditch and then took off so that was no help.. I didn't have service where I was which was practically middle of freakin nowhere lol.. Then I remembered that OnStar has that satellite phone that I never used the minutes on from when I bought it so I made a call to family told them to get the tractors and head on over.. After careful pulling I finally got her free from the muddy ruins and back on the road.
Also during that whole time as it was sinking both tires on the driver side came about 5 inches off the ground so technically my truck was on its side, thanks to the mud though no damage just minor scratches from the rocks that rubbed around.

Rear view (10-15 minutes after initial incident)
Side view (30-45 minutes after impact)
After it was fished out
Took 4 hours out of my day to hand wash
Even scrubbed the undercarriage down, cleaned out the engine compartment, and hand waxed her!
Just a cute picture of my dog that was on my iPad! Show her some love!! (:

Not a fun thing to have happen, but all's well that ends well.

Glad to hear that there was no major damage. When I used to take my 95 mudding I would put an oscillating sprinkler under her for a day. sometime two! It always washed all the mud off the under carriage very well.

Glad the truck and you are ok. I hate people like that. Won't help anyone in need especially if they caused it...no one has manners nowadays. It was probably some teenager too...
