I added a picture. The truck tried to swerve and the impact ended up being at the left rear tire.

Not for now. But if I ever do I would probably go for an Exige!

What a dick. Did you get any info for the truck or see what it was? I actually saw a situation happen like this a while back when I was on my motorcycle. Dude in a riced out CRX slammed into the back of a Subaru wagon and took off. Luckily he counldn't outrun an R6 . I chased him down leaving a little space so he wouldn't know I was chasing, casually sat behind him at a red light and got his tag number. I took it back to the lady in the Subaru.

Sadly all I knew was that it was a Dodge Ram. I wish somebody would have done that for me, being that it happened during rush hour.
