    And the car driver will probably find some ambulance chasing lawyer who will sue the truck driver and win even though they most likely did nothing wrong

    Now did the truck over run them in a turn or did the car think the could do a fact and furious from the movie?

    Looks like the truck hit something or something hit the truck on it's left side, and the force of that impact moved the truck to the right, onto the car.

    My guess is it's not the car's fault. But without knowing the cause of the damage to the left side of the truck, I can't say it's the truck driver's fault either.

    Or did the car run up under the trailer, forcing the truck to the left hitting the overpass pilings, causing the left side damage???

    I was just telling my GF today. I’m in central PA today and every billboard was for an attorney. Even the double stacked ones both had attorneys on them. Two lane road and still attorney billboards. Over 20 in a small area I covered. Felt like I was in Indiana or Illinois seeing The Hammer every 3 miles LOL

    There even going after the trucks now. When a car runs into the rear of the truck. Its the trucks fault because they were in the way. Sad Lawyers will go after anything.
