Not the way to start the vacation

After 31/2 hours of driving to get 20 miles from the destination, this is what happens when an S-10 pick-up runs a stop sign and gets t-boned by a 1 ton truck. No injuries, just the pride and our baby.

Sorry to see that, glad no one was hurt. I probably would be in jail for shoving the idiot in the S-10 head thru his windshield.

Wasn't able to continue. Collision took out all the equipment between the fiberglass and the front of the motor and the drivers side tire/wheel. There are a number of things I would have liked to have done to the idiot in the S-10. Sitting there watching it all happen was hard to do. All I could do was say, OH S@@T.

That truly sucks and I am sorry to see this happen. It is very frustrating to witness idiots driving automobiles yet we all see it too often. Good luck with the repairs.

Holy Guacamole !?!?!

That truly does suck... so sorry you're having to deal with it..

This is the reason I'm glad we invested in a dashboard camera.. I'm sure fault is not in question.. but having a video would remove all doubt it was the idiots fault and confirm your side of the story..

Best of luck getting all the parts and pieces put back together !!!
