That's a tuff break, Joseph. Did the person who hit you stick around? Did the police have to get involved? Were you able to drive it to Pittston for repairs? Did you need a tow?

Did this happen while you were parked at a truck stop?

Shoot, I was run into three times in 14 months at truck stops. It seems to happen more often.

Was it a Volvo?

You laugh, Ancient One, but it's true.

White Volvo pulling a refer, piloted by those that wear sandals and barely speak English....

I refer to them as "The Volvo Destruction Crew".

They stuck around. The had their truck nearly a month apparently. I got the head light fixed and removed the other fog light.. Basically enough to be DOT legal at Pittston no tow so that was good.

I'm hoping to make it back to Pittston to get the rest fixed this weekend

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.
