Just got home from the body shop where I hope my truck will be repaired properly.I was driving home tonight on the Hwy when a car shot out from in front of the transport I was passing smashing into my right front wheel/fender sending me into a fish tale at 110k,I gained control and pulled over to the right shoulder. Tow Truck,Body Shop Rental Car blah blah blah. As it turns out the transport was attempting to change lanes and did not see the car to his right and smacked his rear left quarter panel spinning him sideways right in front of himself. Just as this happened I was passing the truck on the other side and directly in the cars line of travel. The car was a total wright off and my truck has somewhere around 5 grand in damage. The truck driver tried to say the accident all happened on his right and started with me and the car.The driver of the other car was in the ambulance last I seen him. The cop said to the truck driver why is there gold paint on the front right of your bumper? The truck driver says,do not know it is not my truck. I got home with no injuries and thanking god I drive a F250 superduty crew cab and I was not in my vette,could have been much worse.

That's a pretty crazy story. It's good to hear you're alright! PLPD is such a foreign concept here in Saskatchewan. I can't imagine not having full coverage!

I never have been without full coverage! I have been paying full pop for so long I thought it was a waste of $,it seems it will now be a mature investment. Thanks!

I am not really that kind of guy,and everybody facks up from time to time,and if I could BS my way out of something like that I would try! He is prolly going to loose his job. Sorta feel sorry for him it is a very competitive profession with all the immigrants getting gum ball machine licences from their uncles and cousins. Thanks!

That sucks to hear about your truck, but it's good to hear that everyone made it out without getting too hurt (assuming the guy in the car was alright). If I was that truck driver, I wouldn't lie about it and I would feel terrible that I could have killed a couple people, but that's just me.
