I guess this fits here...

On sunday I was driving home from my girl's parents' farm in PA on 78, and passed one of the works wrecks I have seen in a long time... A nissan Z tried to pass a big rig coming off an entrance ramp, needless to say he ran out of room and ended up pinned against the truck's rear axle..reminded me of the scene in 2 fast 2 furious...(minus the getting completely run over part) not sure if it was fatal, but from what I saw I can't imagine the driver walked away... Either way I feel bad for the truck driver


this is the body style of the Z (it was white)

18 wheelers are no joke. I have over a million miles in one. Yes there are some stupid truck drivers but they are nothing to mess with. If he is tailgating just move over and let him go. You are going to do nothing but piss him off and put your life in danger.

At 65 mph from reaction time of .5 sec time it takes the brakes to start breaking .5 sec and then 300 + feet to stop you looking at amost 400 feet from when you put your brakes on for him to stop. AND THAT DOESNT MATTER IF HE IS PUSHING YOU ARE NOT.

Here's one that happened a few years ago in Montreal. The car (Mazda 3) was sandwiched under an 18 wheeler after being hit from behind by another big rig. Unbelievably the driver came out of it with a cut to his head. I saw it on the news as they took out the driver; I couldn't believe he was still alive.

The large wheel to the left of the image is part of the front cab of the first rig while the upper right shows the trailer of the second rig.

Back in '93 I got into a decent motorcycle wreck, enough to put me in the hospital for a week while they pinned my shattered arm back together. They put me in a long-term ward that made my injury look like a scratch; these guys were in there for a l-o-n-g time.

The guy in the bed next to me had been in a car that was run over my an 18-wheeler, just like the car in your picture. He broke both arms and both legs in multiple places; they used staples instead of stitches and the scars looked like zippers running the entire length of his arms and legs. He told he remembered being given last rites by a priest before the emergency services could cut him out.

Scary stuff....:no:
