apparently there have been a lot of car accident recently...

I don't know how i get myself into these situations so frequently (could be because I'm on the road in hick-town USA most of my days), but anyway... here's the story.

I was out of the paint store on delivery today in the work truck, on the interstate headed west to drop off 120 gallons of traffic paint. I was following an electic company truck, with an oil company truck (flatbed pickup) next to me, and a green geo in the oil truck's lane about 40 yards behind us. We were passing an animal shelter, and two dogs were loose, and ran accross the highway right in from of the electric company truck, who slammed on his brakes and stopped. Both I and the oil company truck stopped... the green geo didn't. He hit the back of the oil company truck at just the perfect angle i'm guessing, because he flipped about 10 or 12 feet into the air, and landed upside down on the flatbed of the truck... right next to my window. The whole thing was like slow motion... hollywood style. The guy in the geo was OK i guess, we sat there waiting for the emergency crews to arrive ( the truck in front of me broke something and couldn't move either, and obviously the oil truck and geo combination weren't going anywhere). He was just a little banged up and in shock because of what had just happened. He had to have hit the back of that truck at about 70mph... he's lucky... if he had hit at much any other angle, it would have cut his car in half and taken his head off!

rofl

the guy in the Geo must not have been paying attention 'cuz he was 40yrds back & you're not gonna tell me that an oil truck can stop faster than a geo. maybe it wasn't his time to go.

Crazy, oh well at least the car is all ready to be hauled away! Maybe he can get a discount since he loaded it himself.
