    Well i knew this load was weird because everything was running so smooth... i was waiting for the catch.. And today i found it...

    Some idiot plowed right into the back of me on the 215 to i15 truck bypass split in cali... right where u merge from the truck bypass back onto the main i15 southbound... right lane ends so i changed to the left lane , was running in left lane a good 30 seconds or so and getting ready to merge back into the freeway... check my right mirror to make sure nobody is gonna run up my right side like they always do out here... lone behold i see this red pickup bearing down on me... he hit me so hard it ricocheted him across 5 lanes of traffic and into the center median up against the guard rail of the northbound lanes....

    I pulled over immediatly and called 911 thinking there was no way he just survived that, and as i was talking to the operator , the guy gets out and is walking around like nothing even happened... not a scratch on him.... ####ed up my tire and bumper and mudflap real bad... he is lucky he hit me on the tire and didnt center up my trailer , wouldve ended up going right under trailer.. Had to be going atleast 70 or 80 maybe faster and i was only doing about 45 to 50 mph.... Of course expired insurance and expired registration .....

    Was only 30mins from delivery as well..not to mention i just got these tires a couple weeks ago. Brand ####ing new.... hope yall having a better day then me.

    With the traffic so much lighter these days, people just gotta drive that much faster!

    Im pretty sure he never touched the breaks . Think he either fell asleep or on the phone or on drugs or something like that

    Bad bad. How much is your deductible? Don't forget to check trailer axles alignment.

    Just remember. A person in shock may appear normal until the shock wears off. Hopefully they made their truck inopearable and the police will check him out.
