    Went to visit my folks for dinner this evening and on the way home someone in the oncoming lane got sideways in the snow and took me out. Dark, snowing, it happened so fast I never even got to hit the brakes. Full airbag deployment, I’m fine. Drivers of the other two vehicles left in ambulances.

    So bummed. If anyone has advice on dealing with the at-fault driver’s insurance, I’m all ears. I feel a good fcking coming. And not the good kind. I don’t know my payoff and won’t know until Thursday, but I’m positive it’s more than kbb. Of course no GAP insurance on my end either. Oh well.

    Holy shit! Hope everyone is ok!

    I can’t offer any advice as all my accidents have been with at fault drivers without insurance.

    The police told me they won’t have the report done until tomorrow, I really hope she has insurance. I’m sure that was a nightmare.

    Did the curtain airbags deploy? Kinda hard to tell in the pic.

    If they did I’d venture to say that’s a total. The front end damage is significant to boot but considering what mine went through last year I would hazard to say it’s fixable. Of course YMMV.

    Depending who your insurance company is, start the claim with yours and let them go after the other drive on your behalf.

    Thanks everyone. Curtains deployed. Everything deployed except for passengers dash bag. I have geico, they said file the claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance and they would help if I needed them to. Hopefully I can get the report today and start the process.ED835EB2-5846-40D8-9F0C-A00DD00AF080.jpg92FD0229-0CB0-405F-AD33-D15A95D0860E.jpg

    So glad you are safe! I'm sure this is not what you wanted to deal with over the holidays but thankfully, you walked away from an awful experience.

    Hope your insurance covers everything1

    Glad you are fine, health and family first. You were well being protected in a higher frame truck with working safety features.

    Sorry man, glad you are ok. 4Runner hold their value quite well, so you may not be upside down in the loan. Look around Craigslist and see what they are selling for in your area. Remember that everything is a negotiation. Good luck and merry Christmas.

    so the 4runner did the job protecting you ... that is most important .. good you owned this beast no one in you runner got hurt. runner is totaled .. I have seen other 4 runners just hit a small tree in a parking lot pedal confusion totaled..

    what your next step maybe is , having to sue the driver that lost control .. the insurance company will not pay out the full cost of your 4runner blue book value ..cost of rental vehicle and other costs.also stall for payment .. and offer low amounts send you peanut checks etc.. if your not happy with the response and the amount perhaps you can file a lawsuit . most times insurance company will not want to go down that road very bad for insurance company..

    good luck .

    First and foremost, thank God you are safe and without serious injury. With that said, this could possibly be an opportunity to upgrade!
