Default Got hit by a drunk driver

I went to go pick my fiance up at her friends house last night around 7 and I got hit by a drunk driver. She came across the center line and almost hit me head on.

Luckily she must have swerved away at last second because she did not hit me head on she hit the drivers side pretty hard though. I will get better pictures later but this was all done by a Ford Taurus , no idea how fast she was going I was going about 30. Spent most of the night in the hospital because the air bag did not deploy and even though I had my seatbelt on I must have hit the steering wheel or something because I cracked a rib.

Smashed up my truck that I bought when I was 16.

I'm glad you're alive. That sucks to hear about the truck, but think about how screwed she is for a long time to come. That would almost be enough satisfaction for me to forget about the truck.

Taurus' need to be banned from the road! Those fuckers seem to be taking everyone out. I know how it feels. My friends truck got smashed by a Taurus when we were going to get some food. We were lucky though, no one got hurt.

Glad you're alive. Don't work yourself too hard with that cracked rib.

glad to ear you're OK. A cracked rib is noting compared to what could have been.

there are plenty more trucks out there, and all are repairable.

Glad your ok, I followed a drunk home last night from work. Called it into 911, officer that responded was a friend of mine. Talked to him today, he pulled the guy over 3 houses down from where he lived. He blew a .23. He had been all over the road when i got behind him. He got to spend the night on the county!!

Get scans done to both of your necks and backs. My parents got hit nearly head on by a tauras while driving my old explorer and my moms neck got messed up pretty bad, and only at 40mph.

Glad ya made it out alright.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone.

Forgot to mention she had no liscense , no insurance and no registration. She had no way to prove who she was or if she owned the car.

It destroyed her car so there was no getting away. I was mad but there was nothing I could even think to say to her and of course she got out perfectly fine and sat there and smoked until the cops got there.
