Hurt my truck

So Yesterday after PT in the morning I got into my truck and started to leave the parking lot. I am sitting at the stop sign to pull out and leave. I look to the left and this little rice burner (figures) is all over the brakes to turn in to where I am. This guy had tires sqealing he was going so fast. Anyway I know that he isnt going to make it and is going to slam into the drivers side door of my truck. As a reaction I crank the wheel to the right and floor it to get out of his way since its just a huge lawn on the right side of the drive. In my panic I forgot that the fire department had just installed a new fire hydrant right next to the curb. When I went to the right I ran into the fire hydrent. At least my nerf bar kept it out of the cab sheet metal but it caved in all the rocker panal from the front of the bed to the tire. As bad as truck is I F%^&ed up the hydrant. My tire climbed right over it knocking it to about 45%. I didnt stick around long one I wanted to find the guy in the car and go Chuck Norris on him (never found him) and two I didnt want to pay for a new fire hydrant. Sorry no pics, all I had was my camara phone and I dont know how to get pics off it and on the computer. The damage looks a lot like poor Rodslingers truck though.
Sorry to right so much, just venting:rant: :censord: :blowup:

This guy was going way to fast and had no idea how to drive his "Buzz Box", and the worst part is I know he saw what I did and he just ran. It probaly saved his life though!:bonk:

Man that sucks. You can send pics off your phone like sending a pix message. Instead of a phone number, send the pix message to your email. You can get them that way.

My dad did the same thing and got his 88 gasser stuck up on a new fire hydrant and had to get a tow truck to get him off of it.
