Less than a week later, some drunk asshole sped down a residential street, hit a door dash delivery driver's car, and lost control into the Bronco...

The suspension is destroyed at 4 corners, the car started leaking, and it likely has frame and drivetrain damage.

Probably totaled, but we'll see what insurance does. Curious to hear your guys' perspectives. Not sure I can handle waiting another 2 years to get it replaced :(

Did they only hit the tire?
They hit a car before ours, then lost control and hit the front tire area effectively at a 45 degree angle vs. a sideswipe. Pretty f'd up underneath throughout, wouldn't be surprised if there was frame damage based on how fast he was going and the fact that the impact dragged the 5,000lb bronco about 15 feet down the street.

This is terrible. Very curious to hear what happens with insurance.

you said your car is totaled?

OP it looks like a shopping cart hit your car
Hey man I hope not, but the suspension is destroyed at 4 corners, the car started leaking, and it likely has frame and drivetrain damage. The whole point of the Bronco is its drivetrain and suspension right? Must have been a pretty fast shopping cart! I'll keep this thread updated.

Doesn't look too severe to me. If they write it off, buy it back and rebuild it.
We'll definitely have options, I'll keep this thread posted on all the details. Whether it's repair details and length, replacement, or buy-back and build.

Definitely not a shopping cart accident. Take a second look…the vehicle frame is clearly twisted …
So Sorry for the OP. At least you weren’t in the vehicle and are okay.
That guy's just being a tool, he has no idea what he's talking about. I know the body doesn't look bad, but it took a hit from a car going fast enough to pull it 15 feet down the street...

Yeah, I hate when shopping carts shatter my suspension and slam my truck on top of the tire.

Wtf man, people suck. This is why I always park my cars in my garage or in my driveway and park as far away from everyone I can find behind islands for protection. It looks pretty bad, but the frame will be the key here. Everything broken can be replaced, you’ll just have to see if it bent the frame. Sorry this happened to you and after this wait? Ugh.
