    Sat night, i was hit head on by a drunk driver.

    I was heading to a friends, and right at midnight i pulled up to a stoplight, on a one way road, and theres headlights infront of me. I analize the situation and figure he just didnt know he was going the wrong way. I notice his front end go down like he hit the brakes, so maybe he saw me. Then his nose rises like he just floored it, thats when i cut my wheel and tried to gun my 95 chevy silverado out of the way. He plowed into my drivers front hard. The whole time i could see him in my headlights, with a dazed and confused look, and that never changed even after he hit me. I grabbed my phone, undid my seat belt, and slammed my body into the door to open it. I get out, notice my gas tank door is open from the impact, the mini van behind me people are getting out to check on us. I call 911, jump onto the 95 crown victoria's hood and as im talking to 911 im checking on the guy that hit me. He has 2 passengers in the back seat. All 3 are clearing drunk as hell. I tell 911, make sure they are ok, and give 911 the description of both our vehicles. Police and medics show up. The guy gets out, and the passengers get out. I noticed the passengers on the side of teh road, then i looked up again and they were gone. The driver stuck around, and when a cop asked if anyone else was in the car, he said "everyone is fine" and continued to repeat that. I told them there were 2 other people. They take him off and question him, im waiting for my mom to get there, and im analizing what the hell just happened. My drivers wheel is hanging on by half a balljoint, with both control arms bent.

    My witness keeps checking up on me makin sure im alright. I was very shakin up and in shock. But felt fine. Knew id be sore in the morning. The witness's gave me their info and my mom arrived very shakin up also. I hear the guy that hit me tell the cops that he "was going east and turned here and he was in my way." Dumbass, you came at me headon, you didnt turn into me and obviously i was in your way cause you WERE GOING THE WRONG WAY!!

    They do a feild test on him and arrest him. HE WAS .166 alcohol level, double the legal limit!

    He also has no insurance.

    Monday my back began and is still killing me. Ive been to the doctors, been given some pain meds and muscle relaxant, but nothing has helped.

    No word from my insurance company about my truck, but im voting on it being totaled.

    I know your sore and slightly hurt, but I am glad to see you are "ok" in general. Things could have been alot worse. Someone was looking out for you that night for sure.

    Sheetmetal can be fixed, things can be replaced, but a person cannot..

    Sucks that the other driver has no insurance. I just can't believe some people sometimes..

    Don't let the other guy get off scot free. Make sure he ends up in court, not just for driving drunk and the wrong way but also for wrecking your truck.
    Even if he doesn't have insurance, he can pay restitution however long the judge tells him to pay it. At least with the rest., you will still get some money from him even though it will be over a period of time. Its better than no money and him getting away with it.

    That blows. Glad to see your o.k., take his ass to court. My brother got court ordered restitution from a punk that stole his Camaro in high school. $20/month and then one day BAM $1500 in the mail.

    You are alright, and that is the important thing. Now call a lawyer. Sue the F***er. Get a judgment and record it. Make sure that anything he ever has is encumbered. The court system cannot possibly make his life misreable enough - bring it to him like a drunk behind the wheel.

    I believe Jishory's comment has to do with the vehicular homicide his friend was a victim of at the hands of an illegal immigrant...


    Which probably doesn't remotely apply to this.

    Thanks alot guys! Right now my backs doin alright, still hurts to stand and sometimes sit. I just bare with it. My pain meds dont do anything. The past 2 nights i havent slept for some reason.

    I still got some lawyers to call, but the one i talked to said im SOL cause he doesnt have insurance. He wouldnt explain to me why. I know that theres gotta be a way for me to sue him for going the wrong way, double the legal limit of intoxication, no insurance, totaling my truck, and putting me through pain i shouldnt be going through. Anyone got some help in setting me in the right direction?

    Oh, and it was a 37yo white male, computer programer out of Carrolton.

    if its a 37 yr old white man and a computer programer. he should have money to pay for insurance! unless he has a bad record from the past and cant get a cheap insurance or no insurance at all.. he have his drivers license? maybe it was suspended. thats the things u need to find out. and he could be behind bars for it. but he deserve it.
