So I finally ditched the 6.0 Diesel for a Brand new 2014 F350 King Ranch CC w/3.73. And with less than 2000 miles on it I get rear ended on the highway..... I live in Fairbanks Alaska so in the winter we drive on a thin layer of ice. Everyone around here usually drives slower and brakes earlier because of the harsh conditions up here. I work in the Medical field and got called in one night to the ER and after leaving there was a turned over vehicle on the highway on the way home. By the time i approached the scene the troopers were already there, but i was the first vehicle in the slow lane. Worried about the possibility of being rear ended i pulled over on what little of a shoulder that was available due to snow and turned on my hazards. I sat there for about ten minutes till I heard the screech of tires and WHHHAAAAAMMM . Some lady smashes into me. As I get out of my truck to check the damage the Trooper who watched the whole incident nodded his head and said "I guess she didnt see your hazards, Or the other billion flashing lights!". Drives me nuts to think I did almost everything not to get rear ended and yet it still happened. Well there goes my rant for the day!!
sounds like a sweet truck,, sometimes you just got to chalk it up to freakin bad luck. woman driver in bad weather,, say no more..bet she was texting or talking on phone. hopefully you don't have too much damage and can be back on road soon..Hang in there!!
that's my biggest fear, my 08 was to the point where I wouldn't worry about a little damge like that, though it didn't have a scratch on it. now wife drove that one off the levee and I got a brand new king ranch I worry aboust shopping carts hittning it much less some idiot.
I had something similar happen only it was a beat up old 76' f150 flatbed work truck . I had stopped on Painted Post Drive in T.O to look at a job for pricing , got out of the truck and was walking around the back of it when I saw about 200 ft up the road an old lady in a big land yacht sedan came flying around the corner towards me, she hit the curb lost controll and slammed into the left hand side of the back of the truck just a millisecond where i had been walking before. It happened so fast I didn't have time to do anything. I hadn't even cleared past the back of the truck. Apparently she was late for her hair appointment….. Missed me by inches. She was fine. The truck was a write off.
