I am still at a loss. I bet Frank is a mess. I hope we can get all the facts soon.

Default Talked with Frank yesterday

Frank asked me to post what had actually happend. On a narrow portion of Lorton Road a red dually towing a trailer (not boat)crossed the double yellow line as Frank was towing home Sunday night. Franks trailer went off the road into the ditch. His Hustler came off the trailer and rolled over once quickly and came to a rest. The hatch, and yes his nice airbrushed girls have seen much better days. His flame arrestors were smashed, but the engines are in tact. Frank has pulled both of the engines to better evaluate the stringers/engine mounts. The Imco SCs and props were also damaged. Frank assured me that although, probably not painted, he will be riding again this season. He stated that there is some major fiberglass work that needs to be done, but nothing that is structural. I can only hope his insurance adjuster/company takes care of him with this as I can attest to how many hours he put into just the paint; not alone the engines/drives for his Hustler.

If anybody was in the area or may know who owns the red dually please PM me.

Thanks,
