Unhappy Just released from Hospital ... hit by reckless driver

Title pretty much sums it up

Details: Iím stopped in a line of traffic at a red light. Iím last car in the left lane. There is also a line on cars in right lane.

Woman comes up and apparently didnít see any of us, or the signal? Fortunately she was not driving too fast. My trailer hitch and rear bumper did a nice job destroying her grill and bumper. Apparently my vehicle failed to get out of her way?

Anyway I turned down the ambulance ride. Called my insurance company and also informed my wife. Let both know my lower back was sore. Truck still driveable so I cancelled my plans and headed for the clinic for a quick check up. Pain was increasing and spread to my neck and also my right arm.

Clinic turned me away, called up to the urgent care center and told me to go there. Lots of xrays later I finally get to leave with muscle relaxers, pain pills and am told it will hurt worse tomorrow.

Glad you are OK, Mel. As for that pickup truck, damn dude, that thing has been hit now more times then the daily double. May be time to send it on its way.

I know. I actually walked around it looking to see if there were targets painted on it.

Happy to report I am up and about today.

I feel 'banged up' with lots of little aches and pains all about my body but no single point of pain that I can point to as being a big problem. That is probably good news.

Overall I think I will survive.

Planning to head over to the workshop and put some touring windshields onto the motorcycles. I was told not to do any lifting or operate machinery, but I think I can handle a TORX head wrench to install a couple pieces of plastic.

I do NOT believe she was texting.

She is an older woman, she did not know how to use her smartphone to snap a photo of my insurance card. I had to teach her. If she can't take a photo then I'd bet she was not texting and driving.

Might have been distracted by 10 other things in her vehicle, she seemed to use it as her office/kitchen/vehicle...

If her car was a mess, she's probably one of those sorts who has no sense of anything.
Disorderly surroundings, disorderly mind/focus.

My guess too.

She must have been distracted by something but I doubt it was texting. I think she started to slow down but then ...

She was very nice, very apologetic, admitted fault, etc.

I'm just glad it was not at a higher speed.
