I'm sorry ma'am, but your tire warranty doesn't cover

Is this guy blind, or what?

It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    Its real life fellas

     That was on AOL news. I think it took place in England. Apparently the truck driver claimed he did not realise the car was pinned to his bumper.....Yikes.

     People on the highway finally got him stopped. The lady in the car thought she was going to die....Ah yeah. It never did say how far she had been pushed down the highway. I can't believe that little car did not roll over, and under the front of the semi.

    Close to home

    This actually happened to my mother in law on the Troy highway just south of Montgomery Ala. She was running on cruise control and there was a truck in the left lane and as he pulled back into the right lane her car caught his bumper and turned it sideways in front of him. He could'nt see the car because it was blocked by the radiator, and was giving it more power because of the drag. Finally the right front tire stripped off of the rim and the tire flew off to the left and he saw it and locked it down. She then spun off into the median and came to a stop. No injuries, except to the car. She is one lucky individual.
