I was Pi$$ed /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif It was the first time I've had the truck out in like 3 Months. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif after they took the kid to the hospital to treat his cuts they took his dumb ass to jail . Sorry P.O.S. didn't have any insurance the car wasn't registered to him and he didn't have a licsense .... so it looks like I'm screwed as to gettin' my trucked fixed /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Dude....that sucks big time. Glad you and your girl are ok. I've been bitten by the idiots who drive around uninsured, and had only limited success getting any kind of money out of them. Good luck!!

    Re: Accident

    That totally sucks and I know that when your junk is bent it's hard to see "the bright side".....but:

    Nobody in your truck got hurt, and it sounds like the damage is pretty "localized" and repairable.

    It's always a good idea to remember that you are still ALIVE and ABLE to complain about the accident....had you been an a lesser vehicle, things might have been more tragic. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Re: Accident

    I'm not one to jump on the bandwagon for more lawsuits, but I think you should sue the little turd. If he's under 18, then mommy and daddy. He needs to pay for the damage he caused. Lawyers can be expensive, but in a case like this, I think they would take it for free until it was settled. Seems pretty obvious you'd win. I say it's a worth it. Otherwise the little twirp might get away with it.... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Re: Accident

    to me, this is unbelieveable
    the insurance thing

    do you not get in trouble for not having insurance?
    If you dont have insurance, and you hit me, you pay nothing? Why not go to jail for not havign insurance and operating a vehicle? No liscense? Did he not have one at all, or not have it with him. The latter is dumb, but not having one at all should = jail time.

    Racing itself should carry an added penalty, then the fact he was doing 30+ the speed limit...reckless, thats jail time isnt it, or a huge fine.

    If i was incharge of this stuff id make the dude get out and punch himself in the sack until i fixed my truck

    Re: Accident

    yep, I'd sue that little punk. Seriously.

    He HAS to pay the settlement. He may only pay a little a month, but he HAS to pay it. THe a-hole that ran me off the road in '91 had to pay me off within on year according to the judge.
