$%%^$^ UPS truck
So I was sitting on this red light this morning on the way to Richmond at 8:30 on Route 301 south bound in my Infiniti G35. I just crossed the Potomac into Virginia. Light turned green, slowly pulled out, and all in a sudden a UPS 18 wheeler decided to pull out of the Sheeze gas station. Not only did he pulled out in the last minute, he took over the entire two lanes. I was doing about 30 and heading straight into the container. I knew my car would not clear the bottom of the container and unless I wanted to make my G into a convertible, I better stomped on the brakes with two feet. The brakes worked as designed, but not the arsehole's Mustang behind me. I stopped in the lick of time just feet before I had my head chopped off, but the Mustang plowed into me. I never knew what hit me and all I saw was smoke and the smell of rubber. The Mustang had to be traveling faster than 30 when he slammed into me.
I was in the left lane. I could not get into the right becase a SUV was there and the driver had the wheels all locked up too. I could not go any further to the left or I would have a head-on. I was so screwed.
To top it off, the fvcking truck driver took one look and left the scene. I called 911 immediately and when the trooper showed up, the first thing I said was to radio in and had another cruiser go after the UPS truck.
They caught him about 6 miles down the road.
30 minutes later I drove by and pulled up to the truck. Got out and looked at the fat motherfvcker. The trooper advised me not to go near him to avoid a confrontation. So I waited till the trooper got back into his car, right before I drove off, I told the fat fvck I will make sure he will never drive a commercial vehicle for the rest of his miserable life. While I stopped, I look a bunch of pix of the truck and contacted UPS World HQ in Atlanta. Filed a complaint and told them to wait to hear from my lawyer for their employees negligence.
I feel OK right now, but wish I had rolled out of the car and laid on the ground as soon as I came to a stop. I would have been retired this morning and let the insurance money come rolling in. Oh well, hind sight is 20/20. But wait........haven't I heard there is always a delayed reaction to spine and nerve damages???? Wow, all is not lost yet.
So I know a few of you guys been in accidents before. How much an accident depreciates my car?
This is my first accident EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!
