So last night me, my hubby, two children, brothers and my mother were all driving down the street last night to go out and eat, and this red truck hit the curb and spun out of control and SLAMMED INTO my van!!!!!!!!!! This ignorant 19 year old was driving DRUNK and had STOLEN the truck!!!!!!!! Thankfully my family all walked away from the wreck but my car was completely totaled!!! and now I am stuck without a car until the insurance takes over which could take up to a year. I am one big emotional wreck right now because I cannot afford a car again. I did all I could do for my family to get the car we had. As far as the person who did it he is in custody at this time.

  • Oh. My. Gawd!!!! Thankfully y'all are ok.

    Call and/or look for your closest Volunteers of America. They don't advertise it much, but they DO have vehicles for sale. Maybe goodwill too.

  • I am so glad everyone is safe! Sue the SOB in small cl;aims for as much as your state allows and use that as a down payment for a vehicle. Good Luck!

  • Why is the insurance going to take a year, sorry but that doesn't sound right. Did you full cover in your insurance or just liability? I'm glad to everyone is ok

  • I only have liability on my vehicle, but they said since the other person was drunk and had stolen the truck that is should not matter.
