so im now in genesys hospital in grand blanc. last night around5pm i was driving down owen road at a steady 50mph. this is a two lane road and the oncoming traffic was busy. a line of cars. there are subdivision entrances all over the side of the roads. so it wasnt to surprising when a black impala shot across my lane trying to get to the subdivision on my right. for a breif second i thought is was going to hit head on. but i ended up plowing right into the right passenger side of the impala. the truck somewhow ended up two wheeling it and for a second it thought i was landing on the roof but i ended on all four wheels thank god. the engine sounded really bad and there was smoke so i shut it off and tried to get out of the truck but as soon as i put pressure on my right leg i felt the worst pain of my whole life. I ended up falling out of the truck right into the lane of traffic crying and cursing. but two very nice people stopped traffic for me. they said i was lucky to be alive. because i had my foot slammed on the brakes the fracturing femur prevented me from shooting throught the window. the guy driving the impala is fine and he said he was sorry. god bless him

they had to reallign my femur right on the road hurt so bad i thought i was going to puke. im in the hospital now and after the most painful night of my life ive got a metal rod in my femur. havent heard anything about my truck but i hope they total it. it will never drive well again. apparantly there wwas 3 feet of intrusion but i didnt see i couldnt move. im going to have to quit this semester of college and wont be able to work for a while.

if anyone knows of any dakotas preferably an rt near michigan lemme know. i already misss evelyn . RIP

People always in a hurry. this is what i hate. sorry to hear about your broken bone but could be a lot worse. remember its just a truck no matter how much we love them. can be replaced. hope you do a speedy recovery and make sure this guy pays for everything.

Almost the same thing happened to me a couple of years ago. So, I know how you feel. I was in a head-on doing about 50 mph also... jammed my foot on the brake .... busted my ankle .... totalled the car. Doctor said that if it hadn't been for doing lots of deadlifting that I would have completely lost my ankle.

The bad thing was that fighting his and my insurance companies and the crooked hospital was worse than the broken ankle. So be warned, once the hospital billing department finds out that you were in an Auto accident and that large sums of insurance money may be involved, they get very very greedy (here in Arizona the law allows the hospital to get away with it, too).

Have a speedy recovery and good luck!!!!!

hospitals suck. Awake at 6 in the morning when you should be good and doped up and sleeping.
