Everyone was ok. Crossing highway and did not see the other car. Frame is bent, battery ruptured, radiator leaking bad. Had to use the "jaws of life" on the other car. Police and fireman said that if I had been going any faster, I would of flipped my truck.

I see you only have a September join date, when did you get the truck?

Wow, I didn't notice the angle of the driver's side fender at first... That's really fucked.

I'm hoping the other car didn't have it's lights on....it's quite the epidemic people not knowing when they really should have their lights on given the weather or road conditions. I damn near t-boned/side swipped a lady years ago who was speeding on a blind corner, without lights on her black car, and it was the time of day when it was dark and raining heavily. Not at night, it was nearly dusk. It was deemed not my fault she went up and over the curb and sidewalk and into a ditch.

And if not, this is why you don't inch onto a roadway until it's perfectly clear.

Giving benefit of the doubt here....shit happens though. And thank God everyone was okay.

I can't remember what state it is, but one of the southern states has signs that read, "Wipers on, lights on". A good idea in any state.

CA doesn't need that. People put their wipers on full speed when it's just a must. And only drive 25 mph on the freeway
