First off, I'm perfectly alright.
I was curious to see who else was ever hit by a drunk driver?
I was stopped at a red light on Sunday at 10p, next thing I know, I heard a loud bang and was moving forward. Once I realized I was just rear ended I made sure I was alright. I then got out of my car and see what kind of damage there was. My back end of my 2011 Fiesta was destroyed. I then saw the driver of a lifted F-250 pull over on the side of the road.
At that exact moment, a cop was driving in the opposite lane, pulled over and asked me what happened. At that moment, the F-250 started to drive away. I then informed the cop that the truck hit me and is now driving away. The cop then chased him about a mile down the road and pulled him over. Turns out he was drunk as hell.
Turns out that the guy did about $9,000 worth of damage and is going to take 28 days to fix.
While one of my friends was driving me past where I got hit, I looked and there were no tire marks. The estimated speed of the truck was 40 mph. Since I was driving a stick shift, my clutch was in, as soon as he hit me I simply rolled forward. I can't even imagine what the damage would be like if I was on the brakes when I was hit.
Anyways, anyone else ever hit but a drunk driver?
