DH was in an accident!!!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
He is o.k. BUT, he totaled his Chevy S-10 He hit a patch of water and tried to keep from loosing control.But, it did no good.He was in a section of construction with the concrete barriers.He hit them so hard,he knocked 2 of them sideways.He smashed in the front end of the truck,broke the passengers side wheel off.The fan is in the radiator,side mirror is off.
We only have liability insurance on it.So,we're not gonna get any help with getting it fixed. Now,we are going to be down to only my van.So, no more work for me.
I am just sooooooooooo thankful he was the ONLY one involved in the accident and he is ALIVE!!! He had my Dad and his Dad,and God looking out for him.
They towed his truck to the tow yard.I will get pics of it tomm. and post them.

Sorry to hear about the accident! But I'm glad your DH is ok! It sounds like it was a pretty bad wreck. Sorry about the truck though.

I am soo sorry about all of this. I just cought up to your thread. I am glad to hear that God and his angels were keeping your hubby safe...thank goodness he is ok. I know loosing a vehicle can cause stress and a monitary strain...but thankfully that is all you lost and your hubby is safe and sound. I'm soo glad he is ok. My thoughts and prayers are with you all tonight.

I am so glad he is okay! sorry about his truck, though..

Wow, I'm glad he is okay. Maybe he can check at work...some jobs will give you an advance on your pay, and take it out a little with each paycheck over the next months to pay it back. Then you could get an older (dare I say beater) car, so at least you could keep your job!

We have a large church near us that has a car ministry...they help people in dire circumstances such as yours. Maybe there is something similar by you?!?

I'm so glad that he is ok... As the others have said - trucks can be replaced.

How is DH feeling today after the accident???
I hope he is okay-I echo the others saying while its going to be hard that you are down to one vehicle-it can be replaced-he can't.

GOOD GRIEF!!! I just read what I wrote last night and am sooooooooooo upset!!!I meant to post he wrecked his truck BUT he was o.k.!!! Not he was o.k. but wrecked the truck.
Yes, it is only metal and he is the most important thing to me other than my kids.Without him and the kids,I am nothing and want nothing.
He is o.k. today also.I went with him to see the truck and took pics.I think the tow truck company saw us coming though.It was $195.00 for them to tow the truck. It is totaled!!! Ther eis no driving it or fixing it at all.We sold it to Shawn's brother for parts.He broke the main frame of the truck and shoved the cab over in the back amoung other things.Here are some pics of the truck.Again,I'm just thanking God,my Dad and his Dad that he is o.k. We will get another truck as soon as we can.My Mom told me we can borrow the money from the savings account.

OWWWIIIIEEEE.

I'm just glad your husband is ok. We all know that you put your hubby first. But after you figure he's ok, then it is hard not to be upset over the car. I'm glad you're going to get help with another truck.

If you look at the one pic of the left front of the truck,you'll see the wheel is straight.Now, look at the right side front wheel................it's turned.He broke the tierod (sp) and a few other things there.
The Axle is broken and the frame is bent.So, it is what the insurance calls totalled. The cab on the truck is crooked also.So, we know there is major damage there also.
My Mom wouldn't let me down and let us go without a vehicle with 4 kids.
BUT, we're gonna try getting one on our own.You know,kind of the pride thing.
