I just got in a horrible accident about 5 hours ago

Long story short....I got T-boned by land barge sized Buick Electra 225 and pushed into a 1-ton Dump truck. Both doors wouldn't open. The driver side glass rolled back(thank GOD I had tinting to hold all the little bits of glass) and smacked my head. I had to climb out through the passenger window. The whole driver side of the truck is trashed, and the front left wheel had about 45 degrees negative camber Passenger front corner is busted in, the hood is creased.

There is a very good chance that the truck is totaled. But I'm not sure since its a lease


Good news is....I'm unhurt. A CT scan and about 8 Xrays say I'm fine. Who said these trucks have sh*tty crash ratings! The guys in the Dump Truck thought for sure I was a gonner....nope, I'm still alive!


I dunno whats going to happen with the truck. Maybe I'll be in the market for another S10...this time with a 4.3 and ZQ8!!!!!! hopefully I can salvage what I can off the 99.

If it was a 1st gen it wouldnt have done anything but knock some rust off and maybe a little dent :D

Seriously now I am glad you didnt get hurt. That is a shame if it gets totaled but at least you are fine and thats what matters.
