We are going to be ok. The other driver was cited for failure to yield, dui, aand scarily, no proof of insurance. His card expired last month and he insisted he had insurance. He had his agents business card in his wallet so I am going to call and verify today. We are in Grand Island, Nebraska. About an hour from my brother and a myriad of uncles and cousins.

I will need a front clip. I will try to get a picture of the damage today.

I'm glad no one was seriously hurt.  We've come really close to hitting cows several times.  So much so that we try to never travel that stretch in the dark anymore.

You've also reminded me I need to get new proof of insurance cards.  I misplaced mine somewhere.

Rick,

I am so sorry that this happened to you folks! I am glad you two were not seriously injured and hope that your wife is recovering and not in too much pain. That is a scary thing and it must have been a somewhat helpless feeling as you tried to stop but had no time. You probably couldn't have been safer than you were - from gaining injury - in your Mighty Crown!

Best of luck and glad the idiot wasn't killed.

Kevin

Rick -

Thanks for the follow-up info.  Glad to hear you and your wife are going to be ok.

I've sent a message to a fellow busnut who's bought/sold Crowns for years, hopefully he can help with the front clip.

Will keep you posted. . .

Glad you people were not more seriously injured! Also glad your bus is rebuildable.

I cannot believe the DUI was not arrested and placed in jail where he belongs.

Rick,

Our heart go out to you and your wife.  Please keep us all up to date and let us know what we can do to help.  Maybe some of us could get together for a "bus raising".

Our prayers go out to you & your family.

RJ, he found me a 71 in California, that I very well may be buying and driving to where ever my bus ends up for repairs to pick parts off of until my bus is resurrected.  Then I will get anything else I deem valuable, and scrap the rest.  Thank you for your help.

Great!  Who knows, the '71 may end up being a better platform than your '66!

Keep us posted. . .
