Default Dumb azz not paying attention destroyed my truck

I knew I should have finished that rear bumper project.

This dumb azz (putting things mildly) ran into the rear of my truck today while my wife was driving to work.

Wifey says she was doing 70 w/ traffic and watched this dumb twat come flying at over 100mph and never slowed down, plowed into the back of my truck.

The bumper is mangled, the receiver hitch looks like a pretzle and everything is shoved into the differential. Not just the little stuff like a tailgate and bumper either, my King shocks are bent, exhaust is bent, frame ends are bent.

From first glance it looks like just a bumper, but it's near totaled according to my buddy who works at one of these high end body shops.

My wife, who just had fusion surgery on c5/6 3 months ago is very sore and likely has muscular damage. Though is doing OK...considering.

Geico (who I already hated with a passion) called when we were in the hospital and wanted wifey to make a recorded statement. I refused.

Now they won't respond to multiple messages and there is only one person in the whole company who can issue a rental. We finally paid for the rental out of pocket after screwing around for 2 hours waiting on this horrid person to call back.


I'm pissed as you can well imagine. My wife is messed up, my truck is trashed and I'm just about shaking with rage at Geico's incompetence.

Vehicle's can be replaced. The important thing is making sure your wife is ok.

Dam... so sorry to hear about your wife's pain and possible new injuries , I truly hope it's just soreness and she will not have an major issues.

Sounds like truck might be totaled out, not sure if that's good or bad as I'm pretty sure I remember you thinking of selling it.
Either way I hope it's as stress free as possible which seems like it will be a challenge. Maybe a lawyer is a good call if (sounds like a big fat yes) the person who hit her is completely at fault.
Best of luck ..

Hope your wife is doing ok man. Your insurance rep needs to be sure you are being taking care of thats their job, to sell you the insurance and make sure that it works for you. Not gonna lie if someone hit her going down the highway like that you may need to look for a little more than just reimbursed for what your truck was worth and medical bills. I understand that accidents happen but stupidity needs to pay up

Hope your wife comes out of this ok. Good luck with Geico, they canceled me due to aftermarket add-ons. They made me list them to make sure they were covered then canceled me 3 years later, and that was without any claims.

Already thinking: total the truck. Take all my goodies, total the truck.
