Unhappy It was fun while it lasted..

I know I'm a Ford newbie as I've only had my F-150 since mid December.. But today this happened to it.. I'm 99% sure it's totaled. I can guarantee that the entire driveline is majorly screwed up. The engine runs but the trans sounds horrible -- grinding and whatnot. Ouch!! I was probably doing about 40-45 at the time, this street has a 50MPH rating. The guy that hit me was doing 90+ and was drinking. He ran off after the accident according to people that saw him. None of my airbags deployed for whatever reason. I guess I won't need that transmission recall now..

I guess I'll see what the insurance company does with it.. For now I've got another vehicle (not a Ford) but hopefully I will have another F-150 sometime..


The tow truck driver told me that he had NEVER seen a truck bed folded up like this before. He sees this stuff daily...

I have seen them fix much, much worse. They can/will fix that.

It would be interesting to see what it looks like when the bed is removed. Straighten the frame, new bed/tailgate and paint?

I did did this twice with a Nissan 100 hundred years ago.

Are you 100% sure it’s tranny issues? A hit like that could snap an axle or mess up the pumpkin and gears.

ps23Rick I hope you're feeling OK. I got rear ended while sitting at a stop light by a car going approximately 30 miles an hour. This was back in 2004 and I was only 18, so my body seemed to absorb the impact much better than I know it would now. Please, have everything checked out and report any, I mean ANY, abnormality of feeling in your body. It may take a few days for any soreness and issues to creep up. Rear impacts suck.

That said, like you mentioned, let the insurance do their thing. I hope LEO were/are able to track down the person who plowed into the back of you. Good luck.
