My dad started off to work in his 2007 dodge ram 1500 and hits a patch of ice on a steep hill by the time he reaches the bottom of this steep hill he has picked up enough speed that The speedometer read 35 when he hit the tree. heres the damage that resulted.






so far the insurance adjuster estimated the damage at 5,650 however the insurance adjuster stated that he may have missed several parts so the body shop has been instructed to call him with anything that he missed so he can give them the price.

Glad he's ok, most airbags won't deploy unless you are going over a certain speed, usually over 35.

Looks ugly but I'm sure totally fixable. I did worse than that on my '02 twice :bawl:

What grill did he have? When he gets it fixed he can probably have his choice of oem grills.

I had some chick turn left in front of me on a solid green when I was doing about 40. I must have been at about 35 on impact but my airbags did not deploy. I'm glad they didn't there was no need for them, the Ram protected me well. If they had the cost of them probably would have totalled the truck.
