I was driving to BWI to pick up my fiance from the airport. This was when I had my Honda civic.
So, I'm cruising along in the middle lane on the freeway in Bethesda, when I see this truck tire SKIP the center divider, and start bouncing towards me ! I was doing 65-70, that thing was closing fast.
It looked BIG, and it was bouncing. My life flashed before my eyes. I had NO time to shift my foot from the gas to the brake pedal. The only thing I could do was try to estimate when it was going to bounce and try to avoid it.
I swerved left and it BARELY clipped my front right corner of my car. The engine kept going, it bounced off and God knows what happened behind me. I didn't even look. Destroyed my headlight, bent the fender, etc. That car was never the same afterwards. Anyway, I filed a police report, nothing ever came of it.
Insurance didnt do jack about it, all I had was liability. Anyway, to this day if somebody bitches about being pulled over by a cop because of loose stuff in the back of a truck, I just laugh at them and give them an earful. A $2 buck strap can save somebody's life.
Just be blad you are ok.

If it was trash plywood then it get's a little harder.
Good to hear your OK. Had the same thing happen with a 10 foot john boat.
Scary. Big adrenalin rush. Ended up in the median going around 70 in my RS, came out sideways, when the car caught the pavement, went passed the boat backwards looking at oncoming cars. Made me re-think the breathing thing. Life in fragile.
In most states your insurance automatically has you pay for uninsured motorist coverage. Try to file under that type and the deductable is much lower. In Va it's 100.00 IIRC.

Agreed! So it costs someone $2 for the strap and maybe 2 min of there time to tie something down. It could save someone’s life. But these days everyone seems to be cheap bastards that are in a big hurry these days.
gravelRX good idea with the lumber yards, but there are just way to many in Reno. 3 home depots, 2 lows and countless smaller places. And it's been over 2 months since the happening.
Bullet proof glass seems like a good idea to me. Wonder how much that would cost me? Hehe

I know, been doing insurance is this wonderful state for over 15 years..
anyways.. don't take any crap!!!. File the claim, and if they mess with you, just tell them the next call is to the commissioner of insurance, the attorney generals office, or any other related governmental oversight.
Uninsured motorists is a tricky coverage. Because it would be your insurance company paying for it, they could try to find a way to weasel out of it.. they don't want their profits affected, and look for the loopholes that were purposedly built into alot of the policy forms, thanks to the recent federal government administration.
anyways.. good luck!!!!.. you should be able to claim for it.. take pictures, get the hard copy of the police report, and keep us posted to where it goes!!
