I'm real sorry to hear that man.

On a positive note, that CAN be fixed, quite easily, no matter what your insurance company says. Whether or not they'll pay for it, is another question.

I played chicken with a tree in my old '00. Here it was after the wreck..





And here it is now after I was dumb and sold it, with new sheet metal. Sorry for the quality, the kid that owns it now doesn't have a good enough camera.

Wow. Did the insurance company want to write it off? And I guess it drove OK after being fixed or else you would be glad you sold it.

Were you hurt bad? Seat belt on? What happened? It looks like it wasn't rolled but driven into whatever did in the windshield. Accident damage after the incident sometimes looks puzzling, when the vehicle(s) are still where it happened..as to wondering how did that happen.

PIP (Personal Injury Protection) only on that truck. I could have fixed it myself, but I was dumb and sold it.

The tree caught the tie rod and broke it, hence the wheel being in the position it was. I don't know what else broke, because I was too distraught to look it over. I do know that the gap between the bed was 2" or so wider on one side than the other, but I'm not sure if that was because of frame damage, or the way the truck was sitting. I talked to the kid a time or two, and he said it's running great. It's the worst feeling in the world knowing someone else is driving your truck.

Well I was really busy all day long helping my friends out with some things so I missed getting to the tow yard before they closed so I really couldn't get any good pictures. I didn't want to hop the fence and piss anyone off, but I did get a pic of the BMW and found out it was a 335i so the oldest it can be is a 2007. Stupid kids with daddy's money with their i6 twin turbos. Well some good news free rental car and it looks like I am going to be able to rent a Jeep Wrangler, I am getting 40 dollars a day for for a rental until the claim is finished.

So no dispute or anything. Daddy (or/and Mommy) must be pissed!!! Still sucks for you of course but at least they are owing up and your truck will be fixed quickly. Nice Beemer...(was)..too bad for the parents too.

They really can't dispute anything the police report covers me pretty well. The rental car is covered by my insurance although they probably try and get that reimbursed from his insurance later. Since its a weekend my claim was filed but nothing happens till Monday.

Funny how this thread becomes about you in a matter of seconds isn't it... Not nothing even related to the op's original questions or nothing just pictures of you and your misfortune... no one cares loser you were probably doing something you shouldn't have.... hey look now I'm you! Self centered prick...go find a new forum.

On a side note I did want to reply to this thread. My insurance company totaled a 88 Mazda 626 that went to the junk yard, and the guys there fixed it, broke tie rod was the only damage besides needing a turn signal. The car had 277k miles on it, and was going strong still.

If the company does total it out, I'd be a little pissed. The truck is defiantly fixable. Especially after seeing the ranger that hit the tree be repaired.

Count your blessings, you were very lucky to not get killed, another 24" and you TBoned and at the speed you say he was moving, TBoned = you DEAD! Ford Rangers have one of the worst side / door protection rating of any vehicle.

Glad to hear your ok. Some days we just don't get to vote, we are going to be a victim no matter what, one day a windshield the next a bug.

Well their carfax is fubar now (airbag deployment). I'd say the only damage I'd worry about on your truck is if the force on the control arms was enough to tweak the frame. I would think insurance will fix it if the frame's OK. (it'll be less than the BMW's repairs by a wide margin!)

BTW, glad you weren't hurt.

Also, that many airbags in cars these days…they're turning into the cars in Demolition Man
