    Holy crap.. what did you hit with it?
    I've never seen a Blazer sustain that much damage..
    Look's like you need that exoskeleton as seen on that car someone posted in the non-forum's..

    What hit you? It looks like the force of impact/seed was enough to let her car creep up your front frame horn and into your fender panel. She was speeding but then what was your rate of speed? It doesnt look like a full head on but the speed can still be added together. Well at least 3/4 of your speed can be added to her total speed..

    [Sarcastically] ..yes it must have been hard for her to notice a HUGE K5 stopped right there in the road.....especially since it was painted BRIGHT RED!!!!! [Sarcasm Off]

    I'm sorry, but if anything that truck shoulda looked like the worlds biggest STOP SIGN.....I can't believe she couldn't have seen you, even if it was just in her peripheral vision.

    Sorry about your truck dude!.... At least tell us that she was well-insured?

    Too bad about the wreck. But at least there was one honest person at the scene and is sticking up for you.
    I hate it when its ok to lie for someone if they go to the same church as you. Must be some kind of fine print or loophole in the 10 comandments.
    Try to find some other witnesses who will stick up for you.
    Get a lawyer Fight it in court. Put her witness on the stand. Maby when they put their hand on the bible and promise to tell the truth they will rember what the Good Book stands for. and what it is about to be a Christian.
    And finally, WIN and sue the pants off her and use the money buy a new Blazer.
    I would paint it a different color though. Red attracts wrecks

    Right on! I'm glad someone did the right thing and came forward. See there are good people out there. By the photos you showed there's no way she could have been going straight and you turning left and hit you that way. Any idiot (well not any if you count that cop) can see it's impossible... unless she was going the wrong way on that street.... and if she was then she's at fault for doing that. My insurance is now $2080 for one year thanks to that lady lying in my wreck and the idiot cop. I will be doing all these upgrades so I can park it and ride my bike and take the bus to work. I can't afford insurance, gas and the up keep.... [​IMG] Least you are lucky and it sounds like you will be winning! [​IMG]

    How can I miss you if you won't go away? [​IMG]

    Sorry to see it... You might be surprised at the damage that can occur at lower speeds, though. The government and insurance crash tests only happen at 40mph, and they total the vehicles... Not to say she wasn't speeding, but just be careful walking into court saying look at this, no way this was only 40 mph.
    Good thing another witness came out!! See if anybody else from that accident scene saw it too. Your witness ought to have the names of the other people in thier crash, see if you can get them and get in touch with these people.

    That really sucks, though. I poured tons of cash into my Mopar years ago, only to have it completely pulverized by a tipsy girl that didn't notice the red light I was sitting at (or my car)...

    Good luck! I hope you at least come out with some return on your K5!

    Well if anything....thank God you are alive. Imagine if you were in a Geo or a small tin can car.

    Real four wheelers don't need tools to remove body panels, paint, tail lights..etc.
    P.S. Ask me why it is called "BODY SNATCHER"
