Unhappy 8 days old and now this...

Was driving with my girl on Saturday and was trying to make a U-Turn when I hear the crunch and the back of my truck lifts and scoots.

This is the before:



I got hit by a police officer, of all things.

I have the AMP Power Boards installed (which are incredible) and they held up VERY well.

Taking her to the body shop tomorrow. Does this look like they will have to replace the entire cab?











Thanks,

Sonic

On duty officer. He was very cool during the whole incident. His supervisor on the other hand made sure that I was cited for an Illegal Left Turn to make sure I was at fault.

The intersection does not have a "No Left Turn" sign, and the officer that hit me was making the same turn. Photos will be taken to court and this one is getting dismissed.

How did he hit you if you were both turning left? He was behind you and hit you on the driver's side?

Did you drive farther out in to the intersection and then whip it back around while he thought you were going to continue on to the side street?

Should be his fault, and their insurance should be fixing it, not yours.

That is repairable. My 2007 got nailed by an exploding brake drum off a rock hauler with similar damage. Other than the skid marks in my pants it was like new without replacing the cab.

He was following me WAY TO CLOSE and cut to the curb inside while I was turning. It took out his passenger front light, hood and quarter panel.

The nice thing is that the involved officer made sure that I knew that his video was running and it's public record. Having my insurance company pull the video.
