Wrecked my moms 06 dodge 2500 diesel today...on my way up to pick my sled up from the shop...Slid sideways around a corner and blasted a semi truck and wrecked my snowmobile trailer too..., tore the front wheel completely off the semi...luckily nobody was hurt too bad, my buddy that was with me got a couple torn ligaments in his shoulder and that was it.... here's a few pics of my truck...At most i was doing 30-35 miles per hour...

you guys are lucky to be alive.

this is only one of the many reasons i tell people they are safer in a fullsized vehicle.
looks like a little more than a 35 MPH impact,..........
that semi must have been hauling ass.

i dont really think you know what a semi can do at a slow speed. even though i am 15 and you are 48 i can tell you a semi can do that at a medium speed.

I drive truck for a living ( the last 15 years) and they don't do as much as what you think they would. believe it or not most of the time the damage looks bad because of how cheap the vec. are made these days, but yes speed does play a role in it.
