My name is craig and i survived this accident on 7-24-2004 in rhode island on route 10 when i was traveling at the posted speed limit of 50 mph in the high speed lane.
There was a car in the high speed land broken down and in the entire lane, this is a 4 lane highway so i signeled to go to the next lane over and passed the broken down car and glanced over to see that it was a woman with kids so i looked in my side mirror to see if the car behind me had missed it or hit it and when i looked up there was a flat bed tow truck backing up across the 2 high speed lanes about 3-4 car lengths ahead of me .
It had a car on the flat bed so i did not see his overhead emergency lights. there were cars in the other 2 lanes so i had no where to go but into him at 50 mph and him doing about 10 mph in reverse. i hit my brakes and tried to swerve to the left to avoid him but i had no time so i just closed my eyes and thought "this is gonna hurt".
The last thing i remember seeing is my hood buckling up and then everything went black. When i came to my head was outside the drivers window and the driver of the flat bed tow truck was slapping me in the face saying "hey buddy you just hit my truck" well i will not go into detail of what i said back to him but it was not nice.
He then proceded to tell me that he would tow my destroyed truck back to his shop and give me one just like it for free if i didnt fill out a police report and we would call it even .the fire , police and rescue came and a different flatbed came and towed my truck. well needless to say he was cited on the scene for backing where prohibited and come to find out after getting all information from different people that the drivers insurance was canceled on 7-7-2004.
I was in the hospital one day and the did 18 xrays on different parts of my body and a cat scan on my head .only injury was a knee injury and and extremely sore shoulder. final note from me is that "SEATBELTS SAVE LIVES " buckle up america we love you all .
