WOW, sorry for your loss, pain and suffering. Where did the collision occur in relation to the truck? At the rear of the prime mover or rear of trailer? It is amazing that our little cars can fair so well against the largest on the road. I truely wish you well.
That is why I hate most truck drivers....they EXPECT us to avoid them. They pull out in front of us and cut us off on the interstate at the last moment becasue they CAN and becasue they are bigger. I know there are many great truck drivers and have ridden with a few, but too many are elitest drivers with no care for others because they are at work.
I do not want this to turn into a bashing thread either (either against me or truckers). I only stated this because the OP stated it. None of us would blantantly hit a semi becasue he was wrong, we all know to expect it and defensively prepare for their actions.
