Parking Safety?

We stopped at a store in town
and walked maybe 20 feet from the truck
when we heard something odd behind us.
Someone in a van drove into the back bumper of our truck.
We were a little surprised, but everyone was okay.
A little old lady with a cane got out a surveyed the damage.
We started out a little terse but it got worked out.
She just had a moment. We all have them.
We visited a bit and she left it at..
"It's why we paid for the great insurance for all those years."
I have to go with it was pretty minor but it could have been worse.
Hope she has an understanding husband... It was his van.

Looks minor but we have to replace a few parts
and get some electronics checked.
Nothing is cheap any more...
The bent hitch step took the brunt of it.
That's why it's there.

OOPS. At least the lady stopped. Here in Rossmoor most drive away, though with cameras more are getting caught. Love the angle of the shot, sorry about your truck. Electronics, backup camera, and the integrity of any towing parts hopefully are ok. v

I have a massive hitch on my truck.. my bruised knees will attest. Glad no one was hurt. V

Not the best way to meet new friends, but it's good everything got worked out.

That is close contact of a not-wanted kind. Good that you could both sort it out, but sheesh! And nothing is cheap when it comes to car repairs anymore (remember when you could change the front or rear light bulbs yourself, but now it is a major and pricey job). V

Luckily you could solve it immediately!
