My 6.4...wrecked

Well as it seems to be happening a lot lately. My 6.4 got rear-ended tonight I was at a stop about to make a left turn, the guy behind me looked down for his phone and hit me doing ab 60mph. She took a pretty hard hit, jammed the bed up into and dented the cab. You can see how the rear end turned out, and how the chevy he was driving turned out. Cant believe we walked away with just a couple bruises and some cuts. All his airbags deployed and his doors wouldnt open and his dash came about two feet into his cab..but here is the pics..glad i was driving the ford in the situation.check out the trailer hitch. the only other problems were the back of my seat broke and is all the way back and my driver door doesnt sit flush anymore..

That is one reason I always always always keep my draw bar in the receiver.

My wife blew a right rear tire on our 2003 F250 back in mid 2004 doing 75mph. She ended up doing three 360's across three lanes of traffic and slammed into a concrete bridge abutment rear end first. The draw bar and hitch box took the brunt of the force. The box ended up being an "S" shape, the rear quarters buckled, and the fiberglass topper exploded into a million pieces. My wife was okay except for a sore neck and she was severly spooked.

Then in 2005 same truck ( was repairable), I was stuck in a traffic jam in Detroit. Idiot behind me not paying attention. Rams into me at about 10mph. Hitch ball gets stuck in his radiator. I pulled away and brought part of the radiator with me. I pulled over and he kept on going. Oh well. No damage to me except a scraped ball..


Glad you were okay.. Sucks for the truck.

A farmer I know adapted a round bale spear to the rear of his F350, so he could use that to move bales.

He didn't have much trouble with tailgaters.
