The police may not get them but Karma will!!!!

As we were driving towards memphis, tn today on hwy78 a car pulled out from a road on our left side and pulled out right in front of us without stopping, slowing or even trying to get out of the way! Josh did an excelled job of trying to get out of the way but they crashed into us as if on purpose!! It's not like you can miss us!!! After the crash they got out in front of us and took off. Josh tried to go after them but in a vehicle like ours we lack the power. Luckily there were lots of witnesses and a nice couple followed us to the side of the road and had gotten the drivers license number. About 30 minutes or more later the police finally showed up. Apparently Memphis has one of the highest crime rates in the country and things like this happen all the time. They said that there was nothing that they could do and to have our insurance handle the rest. As you can see from the pictures damage to the trek was minimal but you should see the other guy!!! They had a small honda like vehicle and the whole passenger side was a wreck. I never would wish bodily harm on anyone but I hope their vehicle is even worse than it looked. We ended up having a buldge in one of the rear tires from running over a grate on the road and we are currently having that tire replaced. Besides a little damage to the trek and our nerves we're ok and just a day behind schedule. Thank goodness for insurance!!!
