Unhappy Just got hit on my way home

Well that was unnecessary. A guy driving a construction cube van just plowed into the driver side of my beautiful new truck, and he didn't stop when he hit. He just kept coming. The entire driver side is smashed - both doors and the side of the box. Well over $10,000 of damage.

The guy babbled something about a kid on the side of the road, but there was no kid, he just wasn't paying attention. The cop didn't buy it either - he got charged, but that's cold comfort. My poor truck! At least neither of us was hurt, but I'm not a happy camper right now.

Thanks for letting me vent.

It always a new vehicle. I'm sorry, but glad you weren't hurt and you didn't have the dogs.

That is a darn shame but at least you weren't injured , a vehicle can always be replaced.
