Bill is plumb wrong.

A tower usually is considered a structure and most home owner policies cover
their replacement cost.  They are not treated as automobiles which, of
course, do depreciate.

I urge you to obtain a legal opinion and also bring to your lawyer's
attention that the driver/owner of the vehicle might be liable.  Unless you
were the driver, this point needs checking.  
Good luck
