Re: Prayers and Thoughts;Zookers in accident

Brently just left my house a few minutes ago. He is ok...but I told him he oughta' go get checked anyway...he took two good hits today(the wreck...and a 20mph backwards into a tree hit with me earlier!! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]). He said he was going to.
They had already dropped of Brent's Sammy at my Nephew Adam's house(left mine there too!!). Tommy drove me home, and they were on their way out to Brent's house when it happened. He said they spun at least 4 times after they were hit!!!! I will leave the rest of the detail for one(or both) of them to tell. Brent is going to try to get some pics of the truck tomorrow.
I will have the trail ride pics cleaned up and posted tomorrow...but here is one of Tommy's baby, for us to remember it by [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
This was taken today, on a rough rock climb we call "Pumpkin Eater"

Re: Prayers and Thoughts;Zookers in accident

ok ...heres the scoop kids ...i was giving brent a ride home tonight and was coming up to a curve in the road i saw a set of lights coming right straight for us ...i saw the way the other trucks front tires were folding under ...i heard the screach of the tires,i knew we where going to get hit ...so i turned the wheel away from the on coming truck and gassed it .

instead of the truck hitting head on or t boning us it hit my rear tire and threw us into a spin.after we quit spining i got out ...my rear drivers tire was next to my front drivers tire .the axle snapped clean and was facing away from the truck.

i almost cried...i started cussing the driver,and felt a great urge to kick the sh*t out of him.brent told me to chill and that brought me to my sences.

brent had smacked his head , and busted his knee pretty well.i think he hurt his back aswell.

i had glass in my hand from the wind sheild and rear veiw mirror,wrenched my back,and my knee. but we were still alive,i was very thankful.

under closer inspectoin of my sammy
well heres the damage:
1 snapped rear axle.
1 wasted rim and tire .
4 destroyed lift springs
most of the u-bolt holding the axles to the springs were ripped to peices.
1 wasted rear bumper (thanks to the wrecker :-) )
1 broken driver side spindle (where the drag link hooks up)
both driveshafts pulled out sence the springs ,u-bolts, and spring hangers tore loose.
1 wasted cb antena
a couple torn u-bolt plates
rear fender damage.

and that is what i have so far...i didn't have the chance investagate futher.

i will rebuild her !!!!!!

oh here's the kicker ...i just got back from my honey moon,i drove 1000's of miles with out a problem in a rental car .and drove less than 30 at home to have my zuk totaled.

oh well it just another excuse to upgrade :-) !!!!!

brent i hope you are alright .i thank god i am alright .

parents out there please remind you kids to be careful on the roads. the kid that hit us was doing an easy 60 miles an hour on a dark, curvey. country road.
i am sure he dosn't even know that the insurance will never pay me what it would take to get my zuk back the way it was . i am sure he dosn't know i have no way to get to work any more.oh well i will quit crying.

Re: Prayers and Thoughts;Zookers in accident

After the day I've had this is not what I wanted to hear.
I was very happy to see that my brother zukers are still alive and well.

Please dont' do this to me again, guys.. I've had enough loss for one day.

Love you all.
