Truck vs. Car, Round 2 (or, “yes, my truck is invincible”)

June 24th, 2009

Last night was going moderately well. I got home to find out that my press pass for San Diego Comic-Con went through, and it was time to head over to another Super Tuesday Party at Janet’s place down in Redwood City.

I was driving through town, stopped at a red light. The light turned green, but a couple people in front of me had to make a left turn, and I was stuck stopped behind them.

It took me a second to figure out why my truck got shoved forward and what caused that big crunching sound.

“Oh, I got rear-ended”

I went for my glove box, got my insurance and registration info out. A couple guys who were walkign by at the time told the other driver to turn his car off, he was leaking radiator fluid.

I started to wonder just how bad it was gonna be.

When I got out of the cab, I couldn’t see the damage to the back of my truck, but as I walked back there, I saw the damage to the other driver’s car:

The other car had a bit of damage

Pretty mashed up.

I had resigned myself to having a jacked up rear end, and having to get some body work.

I got to the back of my truck, and saw…

Nothing. No damage. Hardly even a tiny scratch to the bumper.

My truck hardly had a scratch on the bumper

It was at this moment that I realised that my truck truly is invincible.

I also now see that there is another truck across the street in the photo, quietly watching, as if in solidarity with my truck. We salute you, brother.

This is the second accident this truck has been in where at first it appeared the damage was gonna be bad, and then… nothing. In both cases, the other cars couldn’t exactly say the same, and neither was my fault.

One occurrence is random chance. Two occurrences is a pattern, and my truck is showing a pattern of invincibility vs. cars.

[I may have to post up the story of the first time my truck encountered car and won, it was from before I started this blog]

Over all, I was surprised and relieved to see I didn’t have any damage.

Most of all, I am proud of my truck.
