Brought Back to Life (Pic Heavy)

A little history. 5 months ago I was pulling out of a parking lot on a semi blind curve and got halfway across the road before I got T-boned by this car with 3 young girls in it. They were going at least 60+ mph before i got hit. She hit her brakes 30ft from my truck and pushed my front end another 8ft down the road. She said she never saw my truck and that i never had my headlights on. This is not true as i have automatic headlights and the towing company wrote 3 statements stating as soon as my truck was turned on, that my lights automatically came on. Insurance has still not issued a ruling on the at fault so no judging until the final verdict and honestly if i am at fault I will completely understand.

Accident pic:
My truck was further across the road before i got hit. The trans got knocked into neutral and the truck rolled back against her car.

Being repaired:

Finally home:

Only thing left is to put the pin-stripe back on the driver side. (Ford sent the wrong one). I had more before pics but my phone crashed and i lost them.

Damage: Near 15K in damage (Truck still valued at 30K). Front Fender, Both driver side doors, A pillar, B Pillar, Floor, Dash, 4 new tires, New Steering pump and pitman arm (Sheared off), Factory Rim, Body Moldings, etc.

After 5 months away I am happy to have it back. I have put 500 miles on it and it rides better than before. Some say it will never be the same but this thing definitely has no issues.

Sorry for the long Post

Wow. That is crazy, and I'd be upset that fault hasn't been determined yet. Considering that the lady claims you're lights were off and she was speeding, I would be led to believe that she was at fault. My philosophy is, "Why would she have a need to lie otherwise"? Glad that there weren't any injuries. Last, since she hit you, so I would think that she was at fault for taking the turn too fast and not anticipating traffic. I hope it gets straightened out soon for peace of mind at least. Good luck.
