The driver of the truck from my post earlier this week is making out pretty well. After the incident, his truck looked like this:

The truck that was damaged was a 2004 Silverado. A local dealership has announced that they are giving him a brand new 2022 Silverado as a replacement.

That isn’t all. As is the new trend, there is a GoFundMe page that has collected more than $12,000 towards his supposed medical bills. Since the article claims that he didn’t go to the hospital, I am not sure what bills those are.

Not bad. You lose a truck worth $6,000, but are lucky enough that a video of the incident goes viral, so you get a new $35,000 truck and $12,000 in cash.

Government Motors? No thanks, I’ll pass.
Fiatbux are shrinking in value by the hour as well but at least diversity is our readiness.
Scam or be scammed in Chiquitastan.

$12,000 for his injuries? In the first video I saw (some Austin, TX TV station) they said he just had some scrapes on his forearm and refused EMT care at the accident.

Where can you get a 2022 truck for $35,000?

I can definitely needing some physical therapy after being bounced around like that.

But if it wasn’t serious enough to go to the hospital (e.g. nothing torn, dislocated, etc.), $12k seems a tad on the pricey side.

“….so you get a new $35,000 truck and $12,000 in cash.”

Which he will now be required to pay federal (and state) income tax on, and his personal property tax (if his county/state has one) will go up. And, given the electronics and cheapened components in the 2022 he’ll quickly wish he had the 2004 back.

If he’s smart he’ll trade the 2022 back for some mechanical repair work on the 2004 and keep driving it.

Odds are he is an illegal alien. Good that he survived to become a Chevy is Tough ad, but still illegal alien is still illegal.
