While both me and the Chevy braking and signaling to make a LEFT turn into the trail, the guy in the mazda decided it was a great time to pass us on the left hand side. So we starting making a left turn and WAMMO the mazda bounced off us like a trampalene and off into the bushes he went.
the out come was a totaled Mazda. my truck needs a new front quarter panel new grill, bumper and a leaf spring mount. luckily the guy is insured so it shouldnt take long for all the repairs. So lets see the poweragon has detroyed a yellow toyota, a grey toyota,
and now a grey Mazda. gotta love old steal.
we drove the powerwagon home. oh and ******* scraped my front new wheel (american racing baja)

Damn dude that sucks! They are strong trucks. Can't beat steel for reliability.

Hope the repairs go well and quickly.

Yeah the guys insurence is payin for everything so who knows how long that is gonna take. Im also seriouly considering new 4inch customn springs from deaver or somethin from skyjacker. I also want to put all new body spacers and all that upgrade stuff. only problem is getting the xtra cash together.
but yeah you gotta love old steal. the first accident left a small dent in the front fender (from a drunk driver)(his truck totaled)
the second accident was a moron who forgot where the brake peddle was. and he put a tiny scuff in my rear bumper. he hit where the main brace is at. (his truck totaled)
and then there was the moron who didnt know how to drive. he actually did a little damage to my truck though. but his truck totaled.

I just finally got my insurance check from an accident (not involving my truck and not my fault). They take forever to send you a check cause they look for anyway to get out of paying you the $$$

Did you want to rip that guy a new rear when he hit you? Or was he real appologetic?

No he felt like crap cause he knew it was his fault. The cool part is that he was a cab driver so he gives me free cab rides now. That accident was in September and I just got the check this month so that should tell you how fast insurance companies work.

The guys got out of the truck and were not mad. one of them actually apoligized to me for ruining our day. they were pretty cool about it. also the chp, took about 45 mins to get there. glad to know you can count on 911 when you need it.

You would think being a cab driver that he would know how to drive..or not.

I know it! But he said he just wasnt paying attention cause it was late at night with barely any traffic. So before I got pissed I realized that I've had a few close calls for not paying attention, everyone is human.

Theres no damage pictures but it shows where the Mazda ended up. Also you can see the drivers side of the bumper stick straight out. he lucky those trees where there to stop him cause he was doin easily 40 to 50mph
