    Im glad shes ok! Cars and trucks are made to smash all up and take the brunt of the accident, we had a small fender bender and crushed the entire front end! They take the impact and are so much safer. I am glad that noone was hurt!

    Oh.. my.... Lord..... horrid!

    I know how odd/scary it was to see the pics of my car after it was totalled, and I didn't have a darned scratch. My mom just cried and cried when she saw the car in the impound lot.

    For your daughter:

    Thanks Dave, she is still pretty shaken up and very sore. I'm so glad the truck took the brunt of the hit, but after seeing the truck, I terrified. That is a really big, heavy duty truck. I can't believe the damage.

    SO glad your daughter wasn't seriously hurt....or anyone else either! I'm not sure if your daughter saw or spoke to someone (professional, support group etc etc) after the first accident but it might be an idea. It might also be worth looking into a defensive driving class(es) as well.....and I'm in no way saying that anything she did was wrong.....but taking a class like that (when she's ready) might help make her feel more secure while driving.....more prepared. Heck, I plan on finding a place to take some myself once I get some extra cash (I'm an extremely nervous, almost overly cautious driver).

    As far as the pain and soreness......over the counter muscle relaxers can sometimes be WONDERFUL! lol I was hit by a car once....as a pedestrian.....and didn't think things were too too bad...until the next morning....when every inch of my body throbbed. The hospital recommended Tylenol which didn't do a thing so I stuck to Advil and Robax muscle relaxers (not at the same time if I remember correctly, lol). They helped take the edge off from my body being soooo tense. The Polysporin (sp?) with Pain Relief is fantastic for mild cuts, scrapes, and burns too.......of which I had quite a few (cuts and scrapes). Whatever they use in it has a nice mild numbing effect.

    Again....I'm so happy to hear things weren't worse. Sending warm wishes and hugs to your family! (and please excuse my endless ramblings....I was just trying to think of things that might be of some help.....or things that I found helpful after I'd been hit)

    Her guardian angel is working overtime!! Thank goodness she has no serious injuries!

    On the bright side, the things that scare the bejeebers out of most people like public speaking, spiders, learning to swim.... all those will be no problem for her! She'll be fearless when it comes to stuff like that.

    I can just see her being nervous before going up to give her speech as high school valedictorian. Smiling, you'd lean over and say, "Remember what happened years ago? Well, this is a LOT less scary!!"

    Wow, so glad she was able to walk away. Hopefully she will recover quickly and not be afraid to "get back on the horse" as they say.

    I was tearing up reading the story. I'm so glad she's ok.

    Thank you all. I've finally stopped shaking after viewing the truck. Now, to deal with the aftermath. Nikki is terrified, she won't even get in my car today. I called her work because she is so sore to tell them she wouldn't be in this week due to the accident, then I wanted to take her to see our family Dr. She refuses to get in the car. I am going to give her another day, then see how she is. It was over 6 months last time she was in that bad accident before she would get in a vehicle, now I'm not sure what will happen. She really needs to see the Dr, but won't because I cannot get her there. I will keep you all posted. Thank you all for your care and concern. It means a lot to me.
