Man, that sucks. That's why you never, EVER pass in a curve... Good luck with insurance... It's going to be your liability. Sorry to see that though, I liked your truck :(

Glad no one got seriously hurt.
Hopefully you learned a lesson from this, and luckily not at the expense someone else's life.

Dude, I honestly don't think I've come this close to bursting into tears over anyone elses truck being totalled. I freakin loved your truck, yet never got to see it in person

Glad you guys were fine except minor injuries.

The truck will be missed.

Mods... request to have a pic put on the front page of just that one for a couple days...

That sucks bro, I'm wondering if they slowed down on purpose just to giveyou a quick scare, some people do that when you pass them to mess with you. Anyways good to hear you and your gf are okay and the people in the cobalt are okay, and sorry about your truck man. At least it can be replaced, people can't.

NOW GO BUY A NEW RANGER On another note those wheels and tires look salvagable....

Again glad your both okay.
