Our newer car got sideswiped today as Julie was driving us around Springfield. I was sleeping in the passenger seat.
I woke up as a big pickup truck pulling a classic car on a trailer merged into our lane, right into us. Julie hit the breaks and edged towards the shoulder as much as possible, but, being on an overpass, there wasn’t really anywhere to go.
The trailer hit us and continued on. I called the police, we pulled over and they met up with us. They reportedly pulled the truck over 40 miles up the interstate.
When we got a chance to look at the car, there doesn’t appear to be a lot of damage, but I’m not an expert on the subject. We’ll have to take it to a body shop to get an estimate. Maybe just the trailer’s tire actually hit us (thanks to Julie’s defensive driving), because it looks like a layer of rubber is coating the paint.
