Default Was in a bad wreck today, the Ranger is totalled

At 8:15am this morning, A man in a 80's Mazda RX7 crossed the center line and hit me doing about 50 mph head on. I did everything I could to avoid him. It bent the frame severly on my truck. The truck held up well, The RX7 not so much. I have some back and seatbelt strap pain. My ranger is totalled so I am looking to replace it with a 02-03 FX4 LII or any year FX4 level 2.

The man in the car is in serious condition. please pray for him. He was NOT wearing his seatbelt. I was of course.

Heres the pics.

Glad you're OK - hope your back and shoulder pain subside, though you're probably in for some real soreness.

Hope the other driver heals.

Sorry about your truck - I liked it.

Really hate to see that, I have seen this all too often I fear for the other driver. Atleast he doesn't know what happened, I feel for his family and hope you are okay. I know the next couple weeks are gonna be a pian for you I hope it works out for you with getting a new truck. . . It was definately a looker. . .
