Sad day...

Well after five months of working on my jeep to get it road worthy, I got to drive it for four days. Some dumb dumb tried to drive underneath me when I was going 50mph. Lucky I didn't roll.

Underneath you?!?! I'm assuming everyone is ok? How bad is your Jeep? Did the "dumb dumb" have insurance?

Sorry to hear that, I hope everyone is okay and that you can get your rig back on the road soon. It looks like you got hit pretty hard. Keep us updated.

It was one of these things.

Everyone is ok just a little sore ha ha. Real surprising there was no body damage before the rear wheel because he hit my front tire. we went down and looked at it and the tub looks a little tweaked.


Luckily I was not at fault so his company will be covering the repairs or if they total it. The thing that bugs me second most, after not being able to drive the jeep, is the fact he jumped out and started yelling at me like I forced him to turn in front of me. He was a real jerk.

I'm a little confused on how you guys hit, like the jeep doesn't look damaged other than the axle, is the other side damaged?

Exactly, he hit my front tire, didn't touch under my door and then I drove over his hood with the rear tire. The last part didn't go over too well, as you can see.

Probably started yelling at you because he knew, not only did he screw up, it also might affect his job. And he was probably running late and he probably runs late a lot and has been warned, and in any of the never vehicles they have a black box that records the last so many seconds before an air bag deploys giving speed, amount of time braking and other things.

No man, I didn't. He actually was able to drive away. It busted out his grill, messed up his front bumper and dented his hood pretty bad though.

Yeah my brother an I were talking and we figured that's why he was so pissy. Funny, I accidentally called my brother and the guy yelling at me is recorded on his voicemail. His air bags didn't deploy but he almost turned in front of the car in front of me too and she came back as a witness.

Sweet!

Your pic is pretty cool too. I could get used to running over peoples vehicles, as long as it doesn't involve damage to my own.
