About 4 weeks ago now I wrecked my beloved truck. It happened on a Friday evening when me and a friend were going to hang out with some of our other friends. As we turned off on our friends road he started speeding up in his old little toyota pickup, not looking to make him look bad I just followed at a distance. About quarter mile down the road he passed a bunch of deer way down in the ditch, and startled them with the sounds of a weedeater. So after he passed they ran out of the ditch and I plowed a doe at 55mph. At first I was startled that I actually hit a deer because you never think it's going to happen to you. Well it happen and I slowed down and stoped in the middle of the road and then pulled off to the side. My friend and his gf didn't even know I hit a deer and were still driving down the road when I called him to come back. When he got back he saw me staring at my truck in dismay. My friend, being as good a friend as he is called the cops and stayed on hold with my insurance for me as I was really upset and was getting extremely poed with my insurance company. 35 minutes later 2 cops came and did a report and guided traffic while we waited for a tow truck. After 3 hours of tow truck shenanigans we got the truck back to my house and I forked over 195 bucks. Called insurance company and finished the claim that weekend and luckily got a rental car, being that I'm only 18. That Tuesday our adjuster came out and looked at it, gave me my 195 back, and told us that it would be like 3500 bucks to get it fixed and arranged the body shop to pick it up and what not. By Friday I was at the body shop signing papers to get it fixed. It was all going as I hoped so far and luckily the adjuster said I could get my billet and clears back on instead of stocks cause it would be cheaper than brand new oem. A week later the body shop called and said they raised the estimate to 7 grand. Now the truck has been at Miracle Dodge in Gallatin, TN for the past week now cause they can't get it running. My insurance company is probably wishing they totaled it cause my guess is the bill is about 10 grand now and it is still at Miracle not running 4 weeks later.
