Default Ranting, Blowing Off Steam

So tonite im on my way to work, on some kinda crappy back roads where there is still someice, go around a sharp corner n the damn car is in my lane. They try to react but i can see their front wheels locked n stll sliding straight towards me. Im goinglike 45 n with being lifted i was going to just destroy them hitting head on. Luckily I stayed calm n it was either hit them head on or hit the ditch. I luckily stayed calm n was able to skid sideways off the road barely between a concrete mailbox n a huge tree n go flying up into the persons yard sideways n take out a small tree. Then acourse the person didnt stop or come make sure I was ok. I was able to finally get out in 4wd n the truck only suffered a dent under the driver door n a cracked driver side mirror. but really wtf they couldnt stop!!!! thank god i didnt panic n stayed calm n was able to pull some GT5 shit n drift sideways barely between those 2 things ormy truck woulda been destroyed. Also I take it that im going to have to replace the whole mirror, cant just replace the glass? n if anyone has or sees a 06+ black mirror let me know.

Dang dude. Sounds like some nice driving, glad things were not a lot worse.

I can't believe they did not stop, lol.

thanks man and yeah luckily my instincts taking over were good instincts lol. and I am not shocked at all, think about it most people that would accidently run someone off the road like that is not going to stop. Especially I think I saw em slow down a tad and when they saw me drift left n then hard right between the big tree n mailbox n slide up in the yard they were like oh thankfully hes fine. Now im getting out of here. Id like to think if I would have wrecked bad that they would have stopped but who knows with people nowadays. Im not really mad about the dent, just my mirror lol.

ill try I work tomorrow at both jobs, Sears from 3pm to 11pm then UPS from 12am to 5am so idk if I will get to it tomorrow. Like I said im not really mad about the dent, with my truck being white its hard to see but im pissed about the cracked mirror, it aint easy finding that side view mirror for cheap.
