Pictures: Yesterday morning I left the park to head into Grants for some shopping and odds and ends, about 5 miles from the park I passed a state highway truck going in the opposite direction and a large piece of metal flew off of it and hit my truck. Took a long time for the police to get there to file a report.
So then I spend the rest of the day making reports and working with the state highway department filing claims, getting estimates and such.
It will take the highway department 4 to 6 weeks to process the claim. I need my truck so I went to the bank, got the money to fix it and set up an appointment for next Monday at the body shop. The cost estimate was $2500.00 and time to fix the truck estimate is 5 days.
I was both lucky and unlucky. I was lucky that I was not a second or two later to the spot where the piece of metal hit me because it would have come through the windshield and badly hurt or kill me, weee, close one!!! Unlucky in that I was passing by the state truck when the metal piece came off.



Here is the piece that hit my truck.
