passenger side mirror angle down in reverse would have solved that

 

I like how he made contact with the hydrant but instead of stopping just powered through it

 

The problem is after considerable contact, vehicle angle, Wheel position etc.etc. you get stuck and going forward or continuing in the direction of initial travel is the only way out.

 

Lets you myself for example because I have been in a car that got stuck on it's passenger side on concrete pillar in parking garage. In that situation he had to rock back and forth until the hole side was ruined almost nose to tail to free it up! The Beer didn't help but.............

Looks like someone not used to driving a long vehicle and didn't swing wide while turning into the space.

That's exactly what happen

When pulling into a parking lot a person should be moving slowly and have the left foot close to the brake. Once you feel any bump or curb you should be able to stop. That's a lot of damage for a parking lot.

Wait I, shouldn't park on curbs or slam my hitch into things? I've been doing it wrong all these years :-(

All Terrain is your truck Summit White or White Diamond Tricoat its tough to tell from pictures. Just pick a great body shop and make sure they match the color and don't leave sanding scratches. Talk with the manager beforehand and let them know you are anal about the truck and expect a top notch repair. Follow OJ's advice and get dumb A little brother to pay insurance deductible and hookers/strippers/escorts plus the booze.

Thanks bro! Color is summit white and I have been looking around at shops! Some just want you to leave the truck and they will "hook you up"

All right at least the paint won't be so difficult to match versus the WDT. No way don't just leave it until you have read them your terms. Make sure they know you aren't approving aftermarket parts "Taiwan" either. Friend has a 14 Highlander that even going thru Toyota dealer they put on Taiwanese front fascia and it popped off at least 4 times. After several return trips adjuster finally told him to use another shop and they used Toyota fascia. Lo and behold the fascia has stayed put since. You already pay enough insurance as it is so make sure they do it right.

I took a 2500HD straight into a f150 on the side and all airbags went off nothing left of the front end? And somehow it was not totaled and fixed like brand new......

Maybe the park assist nanny is a good thing........

 

A buddy recently caved in his own rear passenger door CCLB 3500 - on his own mail box - with the wife outside directing - so your bro should not feel too bad........... They replaced the whole door - summit white - can't tell it ever happened.......

 

:dunno:

Door aren't very strong except for where the crossbars are. A few months ago I was backing out of a blind spot, couldn't see squat behind me except for sun, said screw if what are the odds and backed right into a GMC Sonoma. I wasn't going more than 3-5mph and stopped as soon as i heard the impact, but I got him right with the corner of my bumper just below the crossbar and his door crumpled like an aluminum can. Barely put a scratch on my bumper. Rear sensors never beeped until I hit him cause of the angle.

Wow......how the hell does something like that happen?

 

Re: the SUV perched on the rock:

 

Q. Why do you suppose that rock just happens to be sitting there in the first place?

 

A. To prevent idiot drivers from harming his friend the bush!

 

Rock = 1

Idiot Driver = 0

Your brother must feel pretty bad about this accident. I had a similar encounter with my last truck but just damaged the running board. The other difference is that I stopped once contact was made. I suspect your brother panicked or was going pretty fast! It will be a story you can both laugh about in the future!

At least nobody was hurt and there is no major or frame damage

When I first learned to drive, our instructor stated you always look around your vehicle before you move/take off. He pounded it into your young heads. Fast forward 18 years later I am never in any hurry to leave anywhere and I still give my truck a look around... seriously even in my own driveway. Those pesky feral cats can make a mess when you splat them.

 

As far as family goes, I have a "No you cant drive my new truck, drive my old beater truck", 1997 chevy 1500 manual everything... they stopped asking to drive either vehicle btw... works out nice.

 

we are all human, shit happens. good luck with the repairs.

If he had the music on, it's possible he didn't hear it. And he would have felt it, but it looks like the car could have been blocking his view of the hydrant in the first place. It's likely that he felt what he thought was the curb so he gave it more gas. I do this all the time (running over curbs to make my truck straight in the lot) which is probably not the best, but I would rather take a curb slow than have my doors nicked up or be "that guy" that doesn't park straight.
