Roadkill

Well I was on my way to work this morning around 5 o'clock and the damnest thing happened.
A hog ran out in front of me while I was coasting to a stop!
Physical damage: license plate bracket popped off of Bumber. Just popped it back on.
Internal damage:upper radiator hose started leaking. I suspect the.jolt from running over the hog caused it to start leaking.
Took this to my local mechanic and told him that I needed the upper radiator hose replaced, coolant flushed, fleetrite elc, and a coolant filter.
Since the hose that was on there is the older hose then I'm guessing the others are too. Should I just go ahead and get all the hoses replaced?

Glad you didn't get too much damage. Looks like she's nursing some young - Hope they figure out Momma's not coming home.

Somehow I missed them. Ran a few down on the side of road but decided I needed to get to work.
