Ouch. I'm guessing the snow made it too slick and you spun out?

Also, why'd you have to get it towed? doesn't seem like structural damage, although it's hard to tell from those pics.

so far the bills at $12'000 all external body damage i couldn't the driver side fender got lodged back so i couldn't open my door. lost both headlights and rear passenger tail light that's why it had to be towed all that and she still drives, i was doing about 70 on the 401 some hyundai cut me off and i spun out crossed 3 lanes smashed the center concrete barrier once truck spun around backwards and hit the barrier again. and the air bags didnt go so i'm happy about that but it is an 09 so i'm sad.

Ah.. yeah. I didn't even think about the taillights being smashed. Makes sense to tow it. That totally blows. Did the Hyundai driver get caught or anything? Not to wish harm to them, but hopefully when they cut you off, they clipped you and stopped. Otherwise, if they didn't hit you, they probably just continued driving.

Don't worry about the truck... it can be fixed/replaced.

I bet it was crazy....I always see those kinds of marks where it looks like someone skid into the barrier then bounced off and rolled back into it...Awesome that you were ok, hope you had full coverage.

401 is a nasty highway in the winter especially when you get these morons who think they own the bloody highway. Glad your alright, sucks about the truck though man.

Your VERY lucky for being ok. Especially for being a higher rate of speed. To bad to see the truck like that. Good luck with everything.

so far they say it'll be up and running within about a week or so, the thing still drives which is good, my only concern now is that the frame may be bent and if thats the case they will right it off, i'm also trying to fight them on the tool box cause it got warped and actually ripped right off the backrack, luckily insurance is paying for all of it, unfortunatly this is my second accident in 2 years and i had a damn speeding ticket for doing 10 over so no one wants to insuare me anymore. well i think one company said they would but my insurance went up to $700 a month.

On a side note. You should say the sport grille is broken and take it off, and ship it to me and I'll pay $ for it. lol

damn dude that sucks. insurance here is BS. it may be a write off though, my buddies 09 had about the same damage done to it, i don't even think it was that much to fix and they wrote it off...

Hopefully all gets sorted out though! and glad you're ok

ya they'll probably right it off if that happens i'll probably grab an f150 next i love the ranger but its only good for sporting around, it ain't big enough for my job. maybe done the road i'll grab another one. or who knows maybe they'll just offer me another one flat out.

yeah! they write it off.
they repair it ,, and they sell at a higher price .

more than likely your box is a write off, that in itself is aboot 5 to 6 grand there ( with-out paint )

good that your okay, but still sucks ( when you live in t.o ,, you better be prepared to pay through the nose for insurance,, that is 1 reason why i moved from that area .

l ike those rims though,, best ranger rims i have seen thus far

i can`t wait to mount my turbine`s with 31`s

Judging by this post, it sounds like the asshat who cut you off didn't stop and no one saw their plates.

Sorry to hear about the news. $700 a month is outrageous!!!!!
