I hit a pole with my friends truck. He let me borrow it and it has been over a month and he hasn't told me what he wants to do.

His insurance covers it but he has a 1000 deductible. Am I forced to pay the 1000?

You caused the damage didn't you? Is it right for your friend to pay for your accident?

Paying the $1,000 seems like it would be the right thing to do for your friend.

I agree with both of my colleagues. Pay your friend the $1000.00 and keep the friendship. However, if he knew you were not able to drive or you were inebriated or impaired, then I would not give him a dime. Best of luck.
