Yesterday I was in the process of picking up a container at a construction site. I had pulled in and parked and was inspecting the container before loading when a woman came by and ran into the truck. Now I'm parked right next to the building under construction with lights and 4 ways on as you can see in this pic.


The woman was on her way to the Mc Donald's up ahead and hit the corner of the trailer doing this to her car.

First words out of her mouth were "you totaled my car "! She got really mad when I told her she would have a hard time making that stick since I was parked on private property, in a construction area, and not even in my truck when she hit me. She got so mad then she just drove off. Lol . To be fair lots of folks use the motel driveway as a shortcut to the Mc Donald's and she wasn't the only one to go through there. I figure she was on the phone and never saw the truck. The container I was after is in the last pic where she is parked beside me.

How fast was she going to be able to do that much dammage? Looks like should have stoped car due to lack of power before it could do that long a strip.

My company has been designing/building communication lines for nearly 40 years. I can tell you with a great degree of authority that the drives are getting worse and there is no shortage of bad drivers. Some of it is distractions, some if it is ignorance, but a lot of it is arrogance, it's all about me and you can't tell me what to do. And when all 3 are in one package.............WOW!

Wow. She didnít scratch your trailer did she? A friend of mine bought a new Ford Crew Cab pickup several years back. He parked it out in a field he was running a combine in cutting corn. Got to the end and didnít see his new black pickup sitting there in the dark and ran the head all the way down one side. It looked just like this gals car. He was so mad he never fixed it. I think the truck was a week old at that time.

Friend of mine works at the AAA service center. One of his friends owns a construction company. He bought a new "company" truck. Big Ford 250 or 350. Club cab with extended bed. King ranch package with leather. Four wheel drive. Also ordered with a Diesel. 93 thousand dollar truck. First or second week he puts a nice big running scratch down the side of it. Hey it's a company truck !

Hey Jon, was wondering if you had your dash cam going at the time. If it was, did it even record a slight ripple?

Something similar happened when I was still in school. My (then) older sister was driving a mid-80's Buick Regal that Mom and Dad had given her. She came to visit and had parked next to their new car. When she left, the most horrendous noise! Yes, she rearranged the entire driver side of their car with her front bumper! Needless to say she didn't visit again for quite a long time. *lol*

That's not true. part of adjusting a vehicle like that is what a salvage yard will pay for it. When I worked as an adjuster if damages plus a yard bid added up to 80% of the value we totaled it regardless of age. I totaled a that year model Toyota pickup with about 2,000 miles on it like that. Engine and drive train were perfect. How many cars you seen totaled just because of hail damage?

I did that to a car with my trailer about 1997.I have a tilt trailer,we called it a poor mans Landoll.It just tilts,the neck folds up but the wheels don't slide.Because of that the axles are positioned a long ways from the rear of the trailer.Big overhang.I took a left off a narrow secondary highway,and somebody tried to pass me on the right.At a certain point that overhang swings out quick,and I took out his hood,fender,windshield and post,mirror,door,and folded over his steering wheel.If I hadn't happened to catch it in the mirror I wouldn't even known it happened.I never felt a thing.It was almost in front or the police station,and one even saw it happen.They seemed to know who I was and asked me if that was my phone number on the door.They asked if there was any damage to my trailer,I said no,they told me to go home and if they needed anything from me they would contact me.That was the end of it for me,I had to ask some locals at the store in town how it came out.It was all on him,he was known as a bad driver in town.

I would consider that more along the lines of entitlement, denial, irresponsibility, immaturity, playing the blame game, any number of excuses designed to get herself out of trouble and even turn her own stupidity and ineptness to her favor.

Sadly with the help of a TV lawyer, and the willingness of the insurance company to just write a check instead of challenge her claim, she will probably come out on top.

Many drivers today just don't seem to be attentive enough like they should, care like they should or know when it's time to turn in their license when too old and their driving skills are not like they were. I constantly see people weaving over the lines, like the other day, a very heavy set woman shoe horned in a small car, trying to drink a supersized coffee type drink in a clear cup while fooling with a smart phone at the same time, driving 10-15 MPH less than the posted speed limit. All you have to do is drive a short distance anywhere at any time to encounter this, it is everywhere, all the time.

I take it she was driving in the same direction as the way the truck is parked, and when passing, she misjudged very poorly, like if she was blind or something. She must have been going pretty fast to cause that kind of damage. The thing about her making that statement, people are downright just rotten, crazy and very irresponsible.

We just got rid of a driver who cost the company $15K as best I can estimate and in his time here. He almost killed a woman when he cut her off while making a turn into a job site. the law did not ticket him, and the witness was our ironworker who saw it happen said it was without any doubt 100% his fault. It totaled the car and she would have been decapitated had it been on her side. I have the photos of the car and what it did to our truck.

The thing that I think is about as bad as ďdistracted driving ď(texting etc) is when someone is driving with a dog on their lap or standing up in front of the driver. I am talking about a dog big enough you can see it in the car, not just a lap dog/ ankle biter.

Not in my state. Private property does not count. There are no motor vehehicle accidents on private property here, We would make a "miscellaneous" report to document the story, time, date, location, people and vehicles involved, as a courtesy for the insurance companies involved.

I have always wondered what it would look like if that corner edge got hit by a car! Now I know! Every time I see a flat bed tow truck I think to myself, damn, that corner edge looks like it could slice a car open like a can opener.....

Funny how truck drivers can drive an 8 foot wide truck down a 9 foot wide lane in the city and keep it between the lines, and a car can t avoid driving into the side of a truck.....it s like the truck driver has two eyes and the car driver only has one eye!

Blurting out "YOU TOTALED MY CAR" was intended to influence any bystanders that did not actually witness the act of the car hitting the trailer. They just see the wrecked car, and heard what she said. Instant "witness" in her favor.

You should have yelled "YOU HIT MY TRAILER" before she had a chance to get her door completely open.
