So, I am pulling on to 97 southbound (Baltimore,MD) after work yesterday (Tuesday) and guess what happens? Some girl changed lanes into a Fuel truck spinning her into me. I ended up crossing 4 freeway lanes, hit the center divider, bounced off and ended up back in the middle of the freeway......

Well, truck will be a loss! Both airbags blew, tranny split apart from the engine, front is smushed, doors won't open, back is all busted up... and I blew out one of my brand new Bridgestone Revo's

Worst part is, I was moving to Cali on Thursday and was going to drive all my stuff out with the Dodge.... :VHOT:

BUT!! I did walk away from it. I had a headache (airbag dust and hit my head on the window sill/door) and a burnt wrist from the airbag. That's it!!! :rck:

Goin over this morning to take pics and I will post them as soon as I get back.

I bet $100.00 on that one too.
There outta be a special class for female drivers.
Sorry if its a bit chauvinistic...but most of my near misses or evasive manuevers were becuase of women on cells phones.

BTW.....glad ya walked away from that one.
Good thing you didnt do the rolly-polly.

She was involved in an accident behind me. I only heard some squealing tires, looked back to see her sliding towards me at which time I floored it. I was trying to get out of her way (or atleast not get smacked in the driver side door) but it didn't happen.

No idea what happened behind me so who knows. I do know that she asked for my cell to call her office (company car) so I doubt she had a phone. Poor girl was a mess. Feeling bad for her but I really miss my Ram :(

Wow, this forum sure took a swing :D

Anyways, parting out will be up to the insurance company and the price of a buy back.

Cali people, I am moving to the So. Cal region. Chino Hills and Highland area to be exact. Have family in both areas so I will be staying with both for a while. Working in Irvine so I will also have a lovely commute.

What is the Ram situation in Cali like anyways? Would love to get another one 99-01 (or an 04 with a Hemi :D ) but I have been a Jeep YJ fan (owned 3 of them) for some time....... Gotta love the Ram community though!!!!

Thank God you are all-right. You can always get another truck, and just think, you already have a good knowledge of what mods you want to do, and how to do them. Good luck with your future indeavors.
God bless you,
