    The vehicle was totaled. $35,000 in damages. Due to damaged nodes.

    Thanks for following up. No surprises here. Learned about what nodes are today. Learn something new every day!

    @Daniel in SD definitely called it on the subframe damage.

    A little late to the game. Wow, I woulda said repairable. But I’m glad you’re ok

    Yep. No injuries nor was there any damage to the interior or any of the glass. I ended up getting a new one within 3 days as they ruled the truck was at fault right away.
