The worst has happened!!!

Well guys the worst happened lastnight, i was on a back road on my way home when a car came around the corner and they were completly in my lane, i swerved to miss it but i made slight contact with my left side of my bumper which made me lose control and strike the guard rail. I'm not sue of the extent of the damage but i know i need a bumper, left front fender side step, and lower intercooler line. When i got out there was fluid leaking out of the wheel well, are the brakes and power steering connected because i lost both, also the lower tube on the intercooler cut broken off and that was all leaking out. The scariest part of it all was i had a chain in the back from towing out that other truck and when i struck the gaurd rail it flew up and went through the back window and slammed into the back of my seat. And thats still not even the best part the POS i hit stopped for a second and then took off!!!

Wow, it IS a good thing you're ok!. That was a lot of things that could of gotten a LOT WORSE. A couple more inches to center and it would of been more like a head on. Lucky that chain didn't connect with your head too! Someone's watching out for you.

Glad you're ok man! I know it sucks, but it would have been a lot worse if you were hurt. That's why we all have to buy insurance and your truck will be fixed. The idiot that ran off deserves a good beating! Hope you got a good look at the car and hopefully for his sake, the cops find him before you do.
