MOC member's had accident

Ma & Pa Wilson (Pam & Max) had an accident with their Monty. They were 30 miles from Mission TX where they were going.
Someone came accross the center line and in order to keep from getting hit head on, they took the side of the road. Their Monty fell on it's side and turned the pickup on it's side too. She said it is a disaster. The man that caused the accident admitted fault and got a ticket. They are staying in a park model for now. She said the side of the Monty with TV fridge,microwave,stove and TV were on the side that it was laying on. Said everything is scattered all over the Monty. The pickup has extensive damage to the bed.
But one great thing, they both didn't get a scratch!!

I am so glad they weren't hurt. Material items can be replaced, people can't. We had someone pull out in front of us once in a small car on a highway. We were doing 60 and towing and they wouldn't go. They just poked along. Bernie hit the air horns and they ran off the road. Either that or we were going to run over them. Godspeed.

I don't know Ozz if they need help or not. I think they are doing OK. Staying in a park model until they get back on the road. I guess they were going to be in Mission TX for the winter. I know they will be very busy getting everything taken care of. Believe their truck will be in the shop first.

Good to hear they weren't hurt. It will be interesting to track what the insurance companies do and how long it takes them to get it done!

We know Max and Pam, and consider them among our friends. We stay at the same park in Mission as they do, although we are not there now.

Max tells us that they are OK for now, but the truck is in the shop for extensive repairs (an 07 Dodge). They are still waiting to hear what the insurance company is going to do about the Montana (an 06 3295RK). I can't imagine how you can roll a Montana , (on any other RV for that matter) without totaling it. We are hoping that the insurance company won't mess them around, but it would be good to know what experience anyone else has had with this sort of thing.

Like everyone else, we are in awe that they escaped personal injury, but I can only imagine that they must be pretty shaken by the experience.

We all hate to read posts like this, but praise God they were not hurt. The truck and Montana can be replaced. Our thoughts and prayers will be with Pam & Max as they go through this tramatic incident. Hang in there guys. Sounds like an excuse to get a new unit!!!

Glad to hear that they are OK and that the driver of the other vehicle stopped and owned up to his part of the accident. Prayers are with them that they don't suffer any ailments futher on down the line from this accident. It took me six months to start having back and neck pain from an accident with a DUI driver.

Our prayers are with them, with thanks for their well being. Material things are replaceable. Having totaled two motorcycles this year, I thank the Lord I'm still here. Thank you Lord for Ma and Pa still being with us.

I hope their insurance is what mine is SUPPOSED to be. Full replacement cost if necessary on Hanna. the truck has it's own insurance.

WOW, I am sure glad they are ok. It is one of those nightmares we all think about when you see those crazy drivers out there. They are fortunate the other driver was still there. We will keep them in our prayers as they go through this ordeal.

Those sorts of accidents can happen to any of us at any time. It sure is horrifying to think that their misfortune could have been ours.

We are so glad they are not hurt.
