    So today, I'm driving to work. I'm stopped at a light and suddenly...SLAM. A guy in a Mustang just creams the back of my truck. We (meaning I) move off the road so traffic can continue, but he can't move his car. I'm furrious of course, because I'm worried that there is some major damage...but he hit the receiver hitch. When I moved my truck, it pulled his bumper off lol. So after the sudden on-set of anger I realize that I just have a small scratch on the plastic of my bumper, where his is currently attached. He was trying to blame me and the officer called him an idiot for driving the way he was in the, I'm in my work uniform (Paramedic) so the officer let me go pretty quick.

    Just thought it was nice to mention that my receiver hitch destroyed a Ford. Hahahaha. So, I've decided to change the name of my truck to Betto: The Ford Destroyer.

    That's the way it is here, too...but people are still dumb enough to try and blame it on the person they hit.

    serves the idiot right.

    glad your truck is ok. my truck has one of those bully hitch steps on it for that very reason, if i get rear ended, they will hit that first.

    Despite there not being a lot of obvious damage, you may want to send the truck off to the body shop to make sure nothing got shifted. A small rear-end collision can shift the frame, especially since it was a direct hit to the hitch. I'm glad everyone was ok.

    lmao thats hilarious, but I'n glad to hear there was no major damage or injuries. My previous truck was a lifted S-10 which had duals coming out the back with the tips sticking out a little past the bumper and they had a 45 degree slant on them. Someone rear ended me and the tips actually punctured their hood. Guess they really werent paying attention because their car went under my truck kinda far. Luckily they werent hurt either.

    X2 what [MENTION=14098]Crawdaddy[/MENTION] said, just to be sure. Glad to hear no one was hurt and the only casualty was the 'stang and probably the driver's pride. I'm going to get a hitch also!
