Default Lucky to be alive

Please forgive spelling as I am medicated.*

Yesterday on the way home I was side swiped by a " black, 4 door, 4x4, dual wheel, gmc/chevy ". The truck looked new and it had a motorcycle in the bed. This truck came around a curve skidding into my lane striking me in the drivers door. The impact was insane, when I came too people were trying to free me from the car. The other driver never stopped. The fire and police told me if it was not for the roll cage I would be dead.

Sorry to hear this. Glad to see, for the most part, you're OK.

Just happened to my neighbor last week. Rear ended and the guy took off.

Hopefully they get to SOB.

Yes but like you said, "Lucky to be alive". A new car can be built. Take care of yourself.

Glad you're alright. Hopefully they gave you some solid meds The driver of the other car most likely was impaired, it's amazing how often **** like this happens. I really hate people.

Yes that is me feeding the fire ants. The police figured he hit me doing between 55-60mph, and it rung my bell pretty good.
