Everyone is OK. Trailer saved us by taking the hit. Only my wife had a cut on her arm.
How did this accident happen?
Yes, glad there were no injures (other than minor cuts). How did this accident happen? This is why we need insurance, to help,cover any loss in situations like this.cheers
Horrifying. I got rear-ended a long time ago and now I turn on my 4way flashers whenever I’m at the back of a sudden slowdown on the freeway. I don’t know if it does any good but it makes me feel like I’m doing something to get the attention of people coming up from behind. I still brace myself when I see someone coming up fast. Take care.
Kentsb - I'm in Phoenix. I'd be happy to get your belongings and store them at my place if that would help.
Not home yet. Accident happened in AZ. Car towed to a small town in AZ. with no car or truck rental availability. We went on to Gallup NM but there are no cars or trucks available to rent until Monday. Unless someone cancels or turns in a vehicle early. Have to get to Santa Fe 195 miles away. Our belongings are 100 miles in the opposite direction.
I have dear friends in Silver City, NM who would gladly put you up and assist in any way they can.
Kent, sounds like the semi was totally at fault, be sure to include your trailer contents, full cost of replacing the trailer (it will need to be a 2022, as all 2021 builds have been allocated), and any cost associated with the accident and added expenses incurred as a result of the accident, added to the claim.Hope you and your wife are doing OK in the wake of this awful event.cheers
