Long story short my buddy bought this truck on Thursday wrecked it on Saturday. I was following him on the interstate running about 75-80 in the rain and out of nowhere the rear of the truck picked up and it got sideways. I braked and managed to get in the median without loosing it and he hit the gaurdrail went airborne and flipped a few times then landed on its side. Got over to him and he was crawling out few bruises and scratches but I cant say the same for the truck

The day he brought it home


After I got him out waitin on the cops

Speed limit was 70 we were doing around 75 which was a little fast for the wet conditions. Cop wrote it up as he hydroplaned. Very few parts are worth saving on it the motor and tranny seem to be ok, some of the interior is ok, and the fog lights other than that its gone. I would love the motor and trans but probably not going to happen

:werd: speedlimit is 70... so its wet conditions and your going to run 5 over? at 55 you lose contact with the road which is considered hydroplaning. I learned that in science/math class:haha:

anyway that sucks about the truck poor NBS :( and glad to hear your buddy is okay.

i learned my lesson about driving fast in the rain when me and my buddy got stuck in traffic outside of nashville. he hit the gas at about 20 mph and the car just broke loose and the speedometer hit 90. it was in a civic lol

I wrecked my BMW on the autobahn doing 140 (240km). I was lucky to walk out alive. not a scratch or bruise. I couldnt find the hood or 2 tires after the wreck. I got a huge ticket. Same thing, wet conditions and driving too fast. I learned my lesson since then.
