Idiotic driver of a huge-ass dump truck
coming in the opposite direction
decided to turn left at an intersection directly
in front of me ......
I had just enough time to react and slam on the brakes
and turn away from a full head-on collision....
was probably going about 45mph (speed limit is 50 in that area)
and he was turning at 20mph or so.

Lots of witnesses,
he was at fault,
received a citation (woop-de-doo).

My first ever ride in an ambulance
to the trauma center,
then 4 hours of neck brace, cat scans, x-rays,
and general poking and prodding.

Plus they cut my favorite summer shirt off of me.

Was stuck in the truck about 1/2 hour.

Glad your ok

I know how you feel. :cry: :evil: My lil truck finally died this spring, and I havent been able to buy a new one on my lowly civil servant paycheck.

been trying for a long time to find something...anything to replace it. Thank God my mom has let me borrow her car or I couldnt get to work. She needs it back and I still cant find anything.

hope it works out for you

Surfpirate, I'm so sorry about your truck but in the total scope of things your well being is the important thing. There is another Hangten out there or maybe even a Hangeleven.

You are going feel worse tomorrow. [smilie=asa.gif]

(((SP))) What a scary thing to have happen to you. Being stuck in the truck - YIKES.

My only trip in an ambulance, I told the attendant that I felt like I was riding in the Schwans truck.

I hope you are feeling better soon. However the pain may get worse before it gets better. It seems like it really sets in around day 2 or 3.

So glad it wasn't worse. From the looks of your truck, I would have assumed you'd still be in the hospital tonight :o

So glad you are still with us.

Glad you're well enough to post about it, and didn't have passengers. Sorry you experienced it, and lost your truck. I hope you only feel better, and not worse.

Whoa... :o :o

I'm SO glad you're okay, mostly. Hopefully you'll heal up quickly.

And I'm sorry about your truck. :(

Yeah, I would have figured you'd be in the hospital tonight. Glad your trusty HANGTEN took the brunt and kept you safe...

SP, so very sorry about the accident, but glad you are semi-OK. Looks like it could have been really bad.

Sending good thoughts and PHINPOWER your way.

OMFG SP!!!!!!! Glad you are going to be ok, SP! I am so sorry that you had to wait in the trunk for 30 minutes before they could get you out. Sorry for the loss of your truck. Good thing your truck was pretty big or it could have been a lot worse.

OUCH!!! I do pray you recover quickly. You are soooo lucky that you didn't have more injuries then you have. They sound bad enough.

Take it easy and listen to the Dr's.
