Default Ranger RIP

Well,
Today my little gray, four wheeled baby was killed in an accident. An elderly man and his wife decided to accelerate from a stop for some reason and go straight through a red light right into the side of my truck, as I was going through a definite green, sending me and my passenger inside onto the sidewalk, through a fire hydrant, an old man, a steel guard rail and plunged down a 5 foot drop into a parking lot below. Bent frame, gouges everywhere, air bags deployed, front clip demolished. Cops say it's a write-off. The news also said it was my fault and didn't even mention that I was HIT!! They just said I hit an old man. I'd just like everyone to be carefull as they're crossing intersections these days, as the drivers today are armed and dangerous, with beige shoes and blue -blockers, and a decaying ability to drive an automobile.
Rest in peace my baby, you were loved.

February 2011 - September 2012
To soon gone

Very sorry for your loss, and ironically, you're vehicle was my sibling since I have an 08' XLT ext. cab 4*2 in Dark Shadow Gray. I hope that everything works out insurance wise for you.

How was the old man?

Drivers today are completely clueless. If I had a dollar for every time someone tried to kill me with a car, I'd be a very rich man.

sorry bout the truck. and the news story (salt on a wound)

same happened to me (i was crossing an intersection with right-of-way/green light, and i got smashed in on the passenger bedside & a little on the read cab corner. I was lucky. if the timing were different, it's could have caved in the passenger door and killed my girlfriend. (she wasn't in the truck, but i can't help but think about it).

The old man is OK in the hospital, all others fine. I'll post a couple of pics. Thanks to all for the kind words. I hope you get more than a year and a half with your favourite truck. Treat every drive like it's your last. The pics don't do it justice, I can't show you all the bad ones.
