Hit by an 18wheeler

I was hit by an 18 wheeler last night on I 65north. I'm pretty sure my GT is totaled but my daughter walked away for this. New Boss 302 coming soon.

He said he lost his brakes. He hit me in the back, turned my car into him, I hit the wall bounced back into him and back into the wall again

I going to see my lawyer tomorrow. He said he lost brakes but if anybody loses their brakes, the normal thing to do is lay down on your horn

That's why I never hang around those guys, you never know if they might fall asleep or something like this happens. I always speed passed them

Literally my worst fear of highway driving right here, glad you walked away from this one. Nobody understands why i never ride next to a Semi. Well, that is exactly why. Sounds like a terrifying crash you went through.

Wow, glad everyone's OK, could have been so much worse. His story sounds suspect. A buddy of mine got squeezed into a guard rail and his was fixable, but yours is probably totaled and youre probably better off if it is. More pics would help.

Yeah, I let any cars in front of me in my lane pass semis first before I hustle on by.

He's full of ****. You can never "lose your brakes" in an 18 wheeler. I drive one for a living and it's part of my job to know every part and function of the air brake system.

Air brakes use air to stay released. If you lose air pressure the brakes will lock up. He's an idiot and should not be behind the wheel of such a truck.

No problem. I hope it helps. Lets hope the truck driver told the police that he lost his brakes because then it'll be in the police report and that'll make your lawyers job really easy.

It still chaps my *** knowing how people can be so stupid and careless, putting other people's lives at risk. I take my job very seriously, that bum shouldn't even have a commercial license.
