The word isn't good so far. To my dismay the insurance company totalled the truck so my dad and I went and cleaned it out and said goodbye yesterday. I was really upset because I honestly wasn't expecting it but upon another viewing there was more body damage then we though although the engine and transmission and such were fine and it was probably fixable. The insurance company is investigating our trailer coverage and we should know more on that by the end of the week but the trailer itself has not been evaluated yet so I don't know if it's scrap, fixable-but-currently-unsafe, or ugly-but-driveable. At least they are saying they'll pay for the towing on the trailer so I can put that $400 towards my parents' $500 insurance deductible by way of apology.Annabellarose said:How are the two of you doing? Any word on your truck, your trailer? I hope everything is well and I hope that the damage and the dollars were not too bad.
I have to admit that I'm okay driving as long as I go on autopilot. If I start thinking about it I get twitchy and sometimes when I'm lying there in bed I run through the first moments of the accident then all of a sudden my gut is reliving that awful whipping sensation and I get shaky. Guess it's hitting me more than I thought!TrailersOutWest/MinisOutWest said:I personally was in an incident on ice and I was shook up pretty bad like you. That was 7 yrs ago and even still today, I have flash backs in certains situations. But hang in there, it takes a lot of time to get thru it. But please go out and kiss your trailer, it saved your life, your horses life and the people driving around you too.
If the poor trailer isn't salvageable I may have to look into a cargo trailer, safe or not. I can't remotely afford a new horse trailer on my own and can't ask my parents to pay for it when they don't even have horses anymore. It's that or stay home forever.
I'll keep you all up to date. Thanks for all the good wishes, please know I read every word.
