I want everyone on this forum to know what happened to me yesterday so it won't happen to you!!

I was sitting still at a red light, looking straight ahead when, BAM, a full sized truck hit me from behind, no brakes or skid marks. (Impact at about 50).

I was in shock. The driver got out of the truck and asked if I was OK. I looked at him and said, "give me a minute to clear my head". He said "let's move to the right so traffic can clear" and I agreed.

As I moved my truck, he ran away...Never to be seen again.

I am asking myself how this happened. Here it is, In a state of shock, you are unaware of your surroundings. Your body is trying to acess the damage on itsself, not look at the offender.

Now my insurance has to pay.

If you are ever in a wreck and can get a tag number, do it first, then call the cops.


I am OK except for my back killing me.
The Syclone has $5,100 worth of damage.
