Power Wagon Down

Post by thedriver21 » Tue Jul 30, 2019 11:20 pm

Well, Dorothy 3 is down for the count. On the 14th I was on my way to work when a driver in a corolla went through a red light while I was going through the intersection. Tried to evade but was too little too late. T-Boned the corolla, hopping over the front end, spinning (almost flipped) and coming to a halt. Was going about 45 mph give or take when I hit the car. I was very lucky with only a bruised hand and foot. Driver went to the hospital but I assume he was ok as they were walking and talking.
Truck was totaled with $33,000 worth of damage. (That was with used parts)

Damn, that stinks. Good to hear all are okay. One of my biggest fears when driving around Las Vegas/California are people running red lights. I see it way to often.

Might want to pick a good dashcam for the next truck. From your signature it seems you are on track for a 2019 PW...

Sad times. I think about that shit all the time driving here in Phoenix.

How much for the black grill? 8-)

Lucky for the car driver you hit up front. I doubt if he'd have walked away in a door hit.

Glad you're OK.
