Well this definitely is the worst post I've had to make on this board. Going home from work last night a drunk driver ran a red light and T-Boned me in the driver's side. She never even took her foot off the gas, even after she hit me, tried to keep driving, but luckily a highway patrolman saw the whole thing and took off after her (Even though her car wasn't going to make it much further). All-in-all I'd say my truck took it like a champ and kept me safe inside. My left side is bruised up from my shoulder to my foot from hitting the door, but nothing broken and was able to climb out of the truck on my own power (Passenger side obviously).

Things that are obviously damaged:
Driverside front quarter-panel, both doors, the entire bed is destroyed, even twisted and contorted the passenger side, pierced gas tank, my instrument cluster wasn't working right when I drove it off the scene, and the frame looks bent up underneath the back of the cab and bed.

The guy that towed it in, I talked to him today (he also runs a body shop) and he said there's a good chance they will total loss it, but we'll see.

Here's some pics, cell phone pics only for now, my camera was at work, damage doesn't really show as bad as it looks in person:

Damn that sucks big time. Glad your ok. I'm always on the lookout driving home from work at midnight. The whole side is damaged and the frame is bent. Sorry to say, but I bet it's a total loss.

P.S. What color is your interior. If the front seats survived I could find a use for them. I'm sure your insurance wont allow it though.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Airflow - The Bakflip's 3rd panel has a crack going through it.

Ratram- I'm not sure, but I think the driver's seat's power part might have been damaged, I couldn't get it to move back when I tried to move the truck off the road. Color is grey though.

Magnum - Happened about 10 miles away from my house, in Greenwood, SC

i dont see how there is frame damage, the wheels are not bent and the body does not seem to be crushed in far enough to hit the frame. allthough stranger things have happened. but because the cab bed doors fender, and a bunch of trim pannels need to be replaced call it a total loss. im just gad you did not suffer any broken bones. i would go in for an mri or ct though and have your neck looked at a hard hit like that tossed you arround good im sure.

Right where the bed and cab meet, if you look at the frame it looks a little warped, and in the 3rd pic, I was trying to get a picture of the rear tire not in line with the front tire, but it's hard to tell since the front tires were turned.

Either way, I really hope it can be fixed. I know she'll never be the same, but she's still my baby.....

BUT, if she is totaled, there's a 4th Gen calling my name right now.....

:loud: Nothing I hate more than a drunk driver. Too many good people leave us too early due to someone else's lack of responsibility and disregard for others safety.
I am glad to see that you are ok though but sorry to see that perty truck all beat up. Hope all turns out good.
