What The Truck!

Hey guys, so I apparently a truck just hit me on the freeway, its a trailer truck. I was on the slow lane, driving about 55-60mph on the freeway in California. And this trailer truck was trying to merge and make a right for some reason, I even honk at him as he decided to merge and he still crashed into me... I'm not sure if I was in his blind spot but I'm not at fault right?

Re: What The Truck!

I'm assuming he hit the side of your car? You'll probably be ok with fault

Yeah, he hit me. But, how am I at fault? That doesn't make sense...

Re: What The Truck!

That's so irritating! Sorry this happened to you. 

Fault can be a tricky one. Hopefully it will work in your favor. And hopefully the guy who hit you had insurance LOL. I've been backed-into twice, and apparently nobody has insurance in Colorado....

Nope, even before he was going to merge I could see his lights flashing and I honk and somehow he just kept going and decided to hit me then drove off even faster 😂 and yeah I did got his plates. I already filed a police report and called my insurance.

Re: What The Truck!

I meant, what kind of damage and where? The extent of damage. Like is it still drivable?
