Early in our marriage, my wife and I lived in a trailer park in Columbia, South Carolina.
We had recently purchased our first brand new vehicle - 1977 Chevrolet Camaro.
Not long after, we discovered that someone had kicked in the right rear panel over the wheel well which resulted in a major dent.
We could not prove it, but the trailer next to us always had loud parties, and we believe someone got drunk and thought it funny to kick our car.
Being newlyweds, money was tight and we really couldn't afford to have the damage fixed right away.
It was several of months later, when we were stopped at a traffic light on a side road facing a major highway, when to our left, we saw an 18 wheel tractor trailer approaching the intersection in front of us. That's when we noticed that one of the right rear wheels of the truck literally fell off and started rolling through the intersection along side the truck.
As it started to slow, it made a beeline for our Camaro. Unable to go forward on a red light, and vehicles behind us, we could only watch in horror as it got closer, slowing almost to where it started to wobble, and as it barely cleared the front of the car, the wobbling caused it to turn, roll past the passenger door, and come to a complete stop, falling.........
...on the right rear panel of the Camaro right above the wheel well!
The tire stood taller than the top of the truck and did quite a bit of extensive damage over and above what was already there, which was an ugly dent.
Processed a claim against the Trucking Company and insurance paid for the repairs.
Do you have a similar story of two accidents in which one off-set the other?
