Default Drunk Driver

Well on the 20th of July, my wife and I were wakened by an extremely loud crash outside our house at 3:15am. Talk about scared out of our minds. We looked out our two story window to find two men had crashed into my pickup truck sitting in my driveway. You see, I live at a "T" junction in the road where two blacktops meet. If you continue across the blacktop from where the "T" is made it forms a "+" in the road (but my driveway is gravel. Well, two early twenties gentlemen decided they wanted to get drunk and drive themselves home. They obviously missed the stop sign at the junction, came up into my driveway and smashed my truck. My truck was facing south and after the collision it was facing directly east. Oh, what was it done by? A chevy impala.... yeah, you tell ME how fast they were going.... Now, my wife and I are dealing with this kid's insurance and turns out he has the minimum coverage.... does it cover all the damage? NOPE. I have no respect for idiots who do crap like this. On, and by the way, my yard is rutted up BIG TIME from where he was gunning in and trying to get away before the law got there.

...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!

Hope you get it covered without costing you $$$
I think they would be sustaining some injuries before the Law showed up if it were my truck
on the lighter side that Chevy took it a lot better then your Ford "sorry"

That sucks big-time..... Tator, if you haven't called yet I would call an attorney and ask them some questions, most attorneys will consult for free, that should be the first question. If the guys who did this were drinking at a bar/restaurant/etc.. ,,, There's an Act called the "Dramshop Act" that holds (in many cases) drinking establishments partly responsible in similar cases. At the very least it is worth looking into to possibly help recover from the damages done. Good Luck

Tator, that is nasty! I would take them to court to get a long term wage garnishment of their wages, if they have a job, or ever in the future. I hope you can get full recovery for your losses. Life throws us so many curve balls that it's a wonder any of us keep our sanity. Good luck!!

Oooooooo, that sucks. Hopefully as they were trying to spin out and rush off you released the air in their tires with small amounts of directly-applied high velocity lead.
