So I am driving up I-25 in Denver around a blind curve, and there is a work truck stopped in the middle of an open lane, on the wrong side of the cones. I hit my brakes and started to slide left to get out of the way of any tailgaters, and BAM I get hit by a pickup truck doing probably doing 25 MPH over the speed limit. My car left skid marks 25 feet long from being pushed by the collision.
The scumbag in the pickup drove off, but fortunately there was a witness who called the police. Hopefully he will be spending lots of time at Penn State (or some combination of those words) with the other criminals. I assume he was drunk or stoned and didn’t want anyone to find out. Did he really think he was going to get away with it?
My $2000 Craigslist 1998 Isuzu Rodeo suffered amazingly little damage, and I was able to drive home after deflating the spare tire which was jammed behind the drive shaft. The pickup truck left lots of parts on the road, and a little mousy 18 year old girl was “driving” the work vehicle parked in the middle of the Interstate on the wrong side of the orange cones.
Two weeks ago, one of my windows was shattered on I-25 in Denver when someone threw a rock from the side of the road.
