Just had a SUV/Truck accident and the F250 won but it's going to be in the shop for awhile. I am hoping somebody in the Lakeland area has a truck with equalizer hitch big enough to tow a 9000# trailer to the contest on Friday and back Saturday night or Sunday.
Carolyn and I are both OK. Got a few sore spots now from seat belt tension. Was doing 45 and she came out of a driveway, across 4 lanes in front of me trying to get into the left turn lane. I stopped in about 40 feet from point of impact. She did a couple of 360's in front of me, went thru 2 left turn lanes and jumped the median and landed in the left lane of northbound traffic. Fortunately nobody was coming north right then or they would probably be dead. Right corner of front end of the F250 has a lot of body damage but it doesn't look like frame damage (fingers crossed). Wasn't drivable due to fender being pushed back against the tire and no way to pry it out. F250 is made out of solid material. Back of rental SUV not so lucky. Not much left from the driver side back door to the end of the vehicle. Hope she bought the extra insurance.
So without getting into more details this year has started off with 2 major bad events for us. I sure hope it's not a sign of things to come. And like I said earlier we're both OK and that's the main thing.
