Last Tuesday as we were leaving Moab we were T-boned by a gal running a red light.
As you can see it took awhile to get shut down, ended up about a third of the way on the river bridge.
She absolutely came out of know where. Claimed her brakes failed, LOL!
Just missed truck fuel tank. Impact pushed tool box and fender skirt into the passenger side dual.
Also got the rear tail light panel.
We were able (with some help of our Jeeping friends) to remove fender skirt (with cordless grinder cutoff wheel), pry the front toolbox open with large pry bar then use cordless impact to remove toolbox, remove damaged tail light panel and temporary hang lights.
Got into the trailer too, ruining (1) trailer tire on impact. Also damage to trailer.
Pretty sure trailer has more damage than is showing. Pic of middle tire opposite side of impact after a 1000 miles.
All tires now have funny (not ha ha) wearing.
How she ended up. She was unhurt and refused medical treatment.
Cop had to chase down the wrecker and retrieve her stuffed teddy bear!
Any first hand advise advise with in dealing with a situation similar would be appreciated.
I did get an Information Exchange Document from the cop that worked the accident. He did inform me that the vehicle listed in as #1, is at fault party and she was listed first.
I let my insurance agent (American Family) know ASAP. I sent them a copy of the Information Exchange Document, they reached out to the others insurance company. Within an hour or so I had a reply from my insurance with a claim # and adjusters name/number from her insurance company. Was told they needed to contact their client to verify and an adjuster would be contacting me.
I have yet to hear back.
I plan to contact Moab PD and get a copy of the accident report before I call her adjuster.
