Totaled the truck, in the hospital

Yep, wrecked the truck. We're in the hospital right now. Dad has broken ribs and various other bumps and bruises. Doctors think there may be a bleed in his brain. So they're observing him for a couple days. I messed up my ribs, shoulder, elbow and knee. Also might have bleeding in my bowel. A big rig turned right from thee center lane, right in from of me as I was in the right lane. We hit him doing 45 then slid head on into a light pole. I did my best to make sure my side took the hit and not my dad's, the truck driver never even asked if we were okay. He jumped out of the truck and started trying to lay blame on me. I'll post some pics that my sister took at the scene.

Thank God you were in a heavy truck or it probably would have been way worse for both of you! I sure hope your dad will be okay and I'm glad you didn't get hurt any worse than you did.

Sorry for the bad luck. Hope you and your dad get to feeling better soon. I know how he feels I broke some ribs about 3 months ago and I still hurt from time to time.
