    My son and his family were hit by a Big Rig on Christimas Eve about 2:30pm on CA HWY 58 in Barstow. Their red Dodge Durango was run off the rode – down the center embankment and rolled 3 times! No one was seriously hurt – miraculously – (Christmas miracle?). The truck was identified as white, with a WalMart Logo. There was a police report done on the scene. What can we do to find this truck? My son only has liability insurance as his car was old and paid for.

    Most truck drivers are responsible and hard-working individuals that I do see take care when they are on the road, but then again, I am in a van, and a little bit easier to see…the one time I had trouble it was a woman and she was on some kinda sick power trip…cut us off several times in the left lane, wouldn’t let us pass, and actually every time we tried to pass is when she cut us off, and the proceeded to make effort to drive next to us neck and neck. We pulled over to call police, get her plate, company name on the truck etc…she pulled over too! She was all of 5 ft tall, my height and didn’t get out of the truck but she was ranting and raving thru her window the whole time…I was ready to take her on an get my NY on! lol! But she never got out of the truck..so I didn’t either..At first it felt like we were in some kind of “truck killer horror movie!” Maybe she took too much no-doze…

    truck drivers are losers who couldnt find a real job, and think they own the road,and know that if they get into an accident or cause one,to keep going so they dont get fired or fail there drug test! and most of them are forigners without insurance! ,,creepy shady people drive trucks period! by the way if u people realize u hit a vehicle, do you reely report it? obviously not ! no respect ever again for truck drivers,, ever

    happened to a friend of mine. the truck took off her mirror and sideswiped her car. Luckily the car behind him got his license number and they called the police. The cops got him before he got back on the highway. Of course he denied it, but had the paint on his truck and a witness to prove it.
