A buddy's truck got killed last night

A friend of mine was heading East on 2nd St. here in Bloomington when a lady in a Toyota RAV4 pulled out in front of him. Don't have pics of the Toyota my friends truck tore the front end off of it. Everyone is okay. I think the Dodge is totaled. The fron diff. knocked a hole in the oil pan, leaking tranny fluid, drivers side lower control arm destroyed, front axle slid back, frame bent and cab is tweaked on the frame. Here a some pics.







Hard to see in the pic above, but this is the lower control arm.

He's going to look at all of them. Definetely going with a crew cab. I think he'll end up with a D-Max.
