Parked at work this morning, came out a little later and couldn't figure out why the Chevy looked so weird, walked over towards it and finally figured out it was smushed against the F150 parked beside it. Come to find out a semi had went over the curb, slammed the left front fender by the front tire, pushed the van OVER the cement "stop your vehicle here" thingy, pushed the front of the van four or five feet into the pickup parked beside me..........and then left. The owner of the pickups supervisor heard about what happened, went and looked at the semis parked by their building for pickups and found one with damage to the bumper and green paint from my van on his red paint. So the person who did it finally admitted it and came over to where we were looking at the vehicles waiting for the MPs to show up for the report. Damage, the semi had a messed up bumper and some metal damage to the area around his headlight, the F150, driver's door messed up, fender messed up and mirror destroyed, Chevy van that was the center of this sandwich.....dent on the passenger side front fender from the pickups mirror, cracks on passenger side flare, mangled area on driver's side flare where semi plowed into it and trim ring around tire damaged. Other than that, some smudging on the paint, not even the side marker light on the passenger side that was buried in the side of the F150 was damaged, holly crap, I think the Chevy won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sad to hear that, and glad, that the Van survived.

And remember, nearly nowhere the Van is save.

I saw some pictures in the Eriba Touring Club forum, where a Eriba was heavily damaged parking in the garage.
A bad driver rammed into the garage-door and pushed the parked trailer forward. So, major damage to the tail-end, the front-end, warped sides and damaged interiour.

Bummer man, it totally sucks when your stuff gets wrecked by no fault of your own. I sure hope that he has good insurance that will take care of fixing the damage.
