Accident with tv and trailer

Well unfortunately our great 2 week vacation in disney came to a end and we were coming home today on 95 in Virgina and someone decided to change lanes and nail my truck and trailer.My wife saw it happen but there was nothing I could do to stop it,luckily.my wife and 5 yr old were fine.As far as the truck goes,passenger side bed is destroyed, the trailer actually did most of the damage to her car as she knocked me sideways.However the front cap corner is shattered and it spider cracked the entire side of front cap and the metal fascia at the bottom is gouged and bent.Overall the trailer will need a new front cap and fascia replaced. The driver was under the influence of some thing and the police let us go and gave her tests as I just wanted to get the hell out of there.I'm just glad I was able to control my truck as it threw me into another lane and thankfully I didn't get hit on that side or trailer rear ended.I will try to post pictures of trailer tomorrow

Those type are the worst. You just were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thanks God no one was injured and pray that her insurance is a good one.

Things can be fixed!

Thank goodness everyone is ok. Hopefully, if she has insurance it will take care of your damage. Too many times, people are driving with no insurance. That's one reason I make sure I carry under insured and non insured coverage.

Glad to hear you and the family are ok. I was rear-ended by an uninsured drunk driver last summer. It was a pain, but that is why we carry insurance.
