    Took a hard fall Wednesday . Took lots of screws and metal plates to fix the 2 broken bones I’m my arm.

    Ouch! Man, that’s no fun. Sorry to hear Ron. I suppose you’ll keep busy doing one armed tasks for a while. When should the cast be coming off?

    Man, that’s a bitch. I feel you.
    I’ve been there almost 2 years ago. Screw and pins in my wrist. Nothing broken. Just one ligament caught between 2 wrist bones because of the fall.
    3 months cast.
    Still not recovered 100%.

    Oh boy, that is nasty. Sorry you had the misfortune. Not the way to start your retirement and having a cast on with all this hot weather. Yuck! Heal well and heal fast Ron.

    Thanks everyone. Some lady crashed her car into my truck and was just going to leave. She didn’t know I was in it! I jumped out of the truck to stop her but fell on my face. Another guy was in his truck and came to my rescue . Stopped the lady and called a ambulance. Cops couldn’t charge her because it was on private property. Doctor said 6-8 weeks to heal.

    Wow that’s too bad she ran into your truck. Hopefully your truck isn’t damaged to bad.

    So she tried to do a hit n run?

    Hope you are feeling better. Did her insurance pay for the damages and your medical bills?

    Here’s to healing up fast. Crazy that people will try to just leave when something like that happens.

    I can’t believe it. You just can’t seem to catch a break , no pun intended
    I hope you heal quickly , get some rest and feel better soon Bud.
    I can’t believe she was going to drive away , definitely didn’t want to be seen 🤔

    I don’t get that. I know that on private property like malls and such, you can blow thru stop signs and such as they are not officially real stop signs that fall under the highways act. But when there’s an accident, shouldn’t that be different?

    Have you thought about talking to a lawyer about this Ron?

    You can still file a police report even if an accident happened on a private property. Sometimes the police will refuse to come out if it’s a minor thing and they are short staffed for emergency response. You can still go to the station and file one there.

    With the police report the insurance companies can go to work on their “blame assignment” process LOL. But it’s hard to believe the police won’t come out if it involves a hit n run and severe bodily injuries. I mean some police will come out for a mailbox post got tilted five degrees.

    That’s awful! I can’t believe they can’t charge her just because it’s private property!

    The lights of humanity dimmed that much more just reading your story.

    One of my neighbors backed into the brand new cab chassis with not even 30 miles on it that I’ve been designing a new modified combo body for. At least she was decent enough to leave a note, as well as her insurance information.

    What the lady who hit your truck tried to get away with, and the injury you suffered having to chase after her, is inexcusable, and a sign of the times.
