03 sport trac XLT
I lent my trac to my sister this week so she could pick up some lumber for a deck she's building and while she was peeking out to make a left turn, a Prius came whizzing by and my trac took some damage. Not much, most of it will buff out, and I will need to repaint my bumper black (I needed to touch it up after 5 years anyway) and probably tighten down a tab that got loose. I was surprised that the paint wasn't even scraped off where the Prius made contact with it.

Here's my bumper after the collision, my trac didn't even crack paint:

Can't say the same about the Prius:

Not sure how it's going for ya as far as who's at fault and insurance. But that Toyota has been in an accident before, notice the front bumper is a different color.
Anyways glad to see everyone is ok, and the Ford won :D

Wow that's amazing how little damage you got from it. Glad it wasn't more serious.

Everyone was okay so that's why I kid, it was technically my sisters fault, but I called my insurance and they said that since I wasn't driving my rates/premiums wouldn't go up and that it would just be a blemish on my sisters driving record, so its all good. I agree about that fender, I was thinking the same thing. I just can't believe how little damage my truck took when you see how much damage that prius took.

As an antedote, a Dodge Ram 1500 turned left in front of my '04 Ranger and I t-boned him. Had to tow the Ram off, I drove away.
