On my way to Monticello this morning about 9:30 when a dodge charger going too fast slammed into the back of my ranger boat. It knocked my motor completely off and nearly drove my boat into my pickup. Praise God no one was hurt.Pretty sure the Charger was totaled, as is my motor and most likely my boat. I was on I30 in Greenville. Apparently she was going too fast and lost control on the wet road. Please be careful out there.

Man that sucks glad yall are ok those toys can be replaced, that is what always worries me is someone running in the back of my boat rather then hit my truck.

Sorry to hear it. Glad you're ok.

On the bright side....if you've been eyeing a boat upgrade, nows your chance to go for it.

My old 361v Ranger got taken out a couple years ago going to Monticello. Same senerio. Slowed down coming into town and got rear ended. Folded my receiver hitch under my truck. Boat slid down the freeway without trailer. Motor ripped off. Other truck totaled. Took three wreckers for the other truck, my boat and my trailer......Glad y'all were OK. Hope insurance is fair with you.

mad i guarantee you she was on her cell phone texting somebody. very sorry for the loss of your boat. i'd have a real "you're not my real family fit" and make her insurance company ante up for a new boat.

Just glad nobody was hurt......people just do not pay attention nowadays. I get a kick outta people always trying to pass me because they perceive me being slow due to towing a boat. That's when I try and blow past 'em and then slow down. Go enjoy a new boat...hope ins pays off well..

I was rear ended a year ago last weekend on my way to Lake Athens on I20 in Duncanville! Totaled my boat motor and trailer but no one was hurt!

I came out great with my insurance and was able to upgrade my boat!

Good luck with the insurance and don't take the first offers!

Sorry for being so naive on this, shouldn't the one at faults insurance cover both your truck damage and boat damage? Or are they just shafting you on "what its worth."

I think she was going way too fast on a very wet road and lost control on a curve. I was in the right lane and she was in the left. I am an insurance agent for a well known company. I'm well insured on my policy but not so sure about hers. Everything will be fine. I had a high school fisherman and friend with me just glad they weren't hurt as well as the young lady driving the Charger. God is Good.

Thank God everyone is ok. It scares me driving thru Dallas with my boat. I hate highway 30. My 28 year old stepson was going too fast and lost control and hit a brick mail box today. Lots of damage to the car and the mailbox but no injuries. I really hope it is a wake up call to slow down and pay attention.

Jeez. I'm sorry for your loss of the boat but definitely thank God that nobody was hurt. That would have made a bad situation much worse.

Same thing happened to me on I-55 north out of Memphis. my outboard was getting drug behind my boat! the cables that connected to battery held on!

I'd recommend getting your truck in to a collision center, to make sure you frame isn't bent, or other damages haven't happened. My frame was slightly bent, the bumper was bent in, and the hitch was all jammed. up.

Good luck, and like others said, be patient with the insurance companies, and get what you deserve, don't settle for less than what you believe you deserve.
