Sad Sad Sad day for me......totaled Ranger....and its not even mine anymore :(

As I was driving to work this morning I came upon an accident that involved a few vehicles. It was at a highway merge and black ice was out. Seen a truck sitting on TOP of a guard rail. Instantly recognized it as my old 06' Ranger. I knew the owner traveled that way for work.

I messaged her husband and he confirmed it. Though I was sad about Ranger, the way it sat, I knew it was bad, and asked if she was ok, miracously she made it with only a few scratches and bruises. The ranger done it's job.

I just had posted the other day a pic of it the husband had posted and all was wel, she just had hit 100,000 miles only averaging 8k miles over the past two years.

Not long before I had to sell due to having a baby..

I had put the following wheels and tires on it as winter wheels 2 months before selling. This is the pic the husband posted to Facebook a few days ago

Wow, that sucks, but at least she will be alright. That cab looks worse than my 2003 that I rolled, but due to the fact I walked away from it ok was a deciding factor in buying another Ranger.
