Default FC Wreck, on I78

Saw a White FC pinned under the trailer of an eighteenwheeler just after the Schnecksville/Trexlertown ramp onto interstate 78 while I was on my way over to a buddys house earlier today. The car looked totaled, hope the driver was alright. It was a nice looking FC to. Anyone else see this?

Holy shit!

Glad you're ok Kyle! Anyone who walks away from a tussle with a semi is lucky as shit.

Sounds like you have a bit more work than an oil change for next year's DGRR...

Its amazing how well our old cars hold up in accidents but luck plays a huge part of it. I was rear ended a few years ago by a semi and was able to walk away with only a bump on my head to show for it.

When I read the original post, my gut told me it was you Kyle... sucks man, but I'm glad you're ok. That car gave you 4 years of nothing but reliability and oil changes and now's a good time to swap it all over to a new shell like you wanted to.

was going way to fast on the on ramp to 78...had my best friend Justin in the car..the entire car started sliding to the left....threw it in neutral hit the brakes...the brakes started locking up and the back end started kicking out let off the brakes by that time i knew there was no saving it so let go of the wheel... feet off the pedals...knew i was hitting the truck turned my head and hoped for the best...i remember the sound of the crash...my head getting smashed by the door frame and roof as the side of the truck went across the roof...then i remember looking thru the window out the other side of the truck and everything was dead quite which was only a few seconds but seem like forever...then reality set in and i remember the sound of the truck tires as they were locking up and the smoke pouring in the car....with in a minute we both were out of the car...i had to crawl thru the passenger side.
its the only time in my life that i really thought i was going to die...i cant explain how it felt as it happened it all happened so quick
i knew i destroyed my tires and brakes at DGRR...and i still preceded to act up in the car...i almost killed my self and my best friend for my stupidity..and could have also endangered more lives in other vehicles...a car is a car...im so grateful that we both walked away with only scratches.
