my ram has been rammed

i was involved in a head on collison on monday. two lane road with concrete barriers. when a large beverage company truck grabbed my right front quarter panel and hit me head on. that truck was over 15 k pounds vs the 5100 pnds of the hemi. that cab inside is what saved my life. i have been in a hospital for 5days. major trauma to my left arm it shattered. blew my elbow out it was somewhere in the cab. still have a long road ahead and still not out of the wood yet for my arm. i will not tell anyone what company hit me because of the outcome this will become. i will have more pictures this week when i go out to see the truck on monday.



i am proud i was in a ram it saved my life by far. i will be in a 4 th gen soon very soon

Holy Smokes! That is a nasty one!

Very sorry to see this, and hear about your injuries. I can only hope all goes well for you with healing, settling this with the offending party, and getting the new truck of your choice!

Was your K9 in the truck also?

2007 1500 SLT 4x4. 2-dr, short bed; 4.7l; 3.55 w/LSD.
SC 87 tune; 4" pvc intake; Magnaflow Y-pipe and muffler; Scangauge... oh, and new speakers!
-- More to come...

Wow! Im sorry to hear about that but glad you are alive. Like i always say, your truck can be replaced your life can not. Sorry to hear about your arm also again just glad you are "ok" amd breathing. Dont take less then you deserve and it will all work out in the end. And yes was your dog in the truck? And is he/she ok?

Man, take it easy. Do not settle until you are back to 100%. Get a lawyer now. Let them deal with the insurance as you need rest, and do not need the stress right now.

I hate to see any of our trucks torn-up but I love how they have saved the lives of a number of members, including me! The truck can be replaced; lives cannot. Please keep us posted how you're doing, OK?

Take it easy. Glad you are ok. Don't post too much on here and get a lawyer for sure. Glad you were not in a 'hybrid'... cause the outcome wouldn't be the same.

X2! Let us know how you're doing from time-to-time but remember this is an open public forum. It's happen in the past that someone you wouldn't think would be online was reading and watch without posting.
