My kids and I were headed home from running some errands a few weeks back. Not too far from our house, we’re all of a sudden rear-ended.
Not something you expect when you’re doing 60 on a state highway, for sure. I move to pull over, when we’re hit AGAIN. At that point, I don’t know what the heck is going. Is this road rage, somebody trying to run us off the road to rob us? Needless to say, your mind runs a mile a minute in something like that.
I floor it; about that time, I hear the engine roaring of the guy who hit us as he pulls to pass us. Looking ahead, I see a semi coming the opposite direction and I realize he’s not going to get over in time. I put us into the ditch as the two trucks collide, come out into a field and coast to a stop in someone’s front yard.
Body shops around here are backed up for weeks, so it was a while before I even got an inspection or an estimate. I was pretty shook at the time of the accident, needless to say, but even more so when the body shop guy showed me the crumple zones and commented that it would have been much worse if not for my trailer hitch.
I’ve used that hitch for hauling bikes but the vast majority of the time it just holds my Cards emblem.
