Default truck saved my life

Hey everyone I was in as serious head on collision Wednesday night. I can tell you my truck saved my life. A minivan crossed into my lane on highway 7. I broke my right tibia and fibia had a rod put in my legg. I was hit at a very high speed all air bags deployed. I figure my truck is a write off. I just got out of hospital yesterday. All be off work for a whie. Im definately getting another ram truck. Tough truck did its job. The woman fell asleep at the whee.and is being charged. She also survived how i dont know. Take care

Wow! Glad to hear you're ok! I've been in a similar situation and I know how hard it is to recover, but I wish you the best!

Wow your story scares the hell out of me. You never know what's around the next corner. So glad the Ram did its job and kept you alive. Take care.

Wow. Glad to hear you are o.k.! You can always get a new truck, but not a new life. The RAM saved you.

Glad you're ok-ish. Give it a week and you'll see how much pain you'll be in. I just bought another new-to-me ram to replace one that kept me and my fiancee safe, so I understand your feelings on the matter.

+1 on you being OK. Did you check out the posting on the crash test of the Ram?

Glad you are ok.
Your accident was where along Hwy7?

She was ok because she was not tense....go figure.
But a new ram is on the bright side here
