So, I'm driving home on this windy road doing 45 in a 40 (moving WITH traffic). Its a single lane road so there isn't opportunity to pass or anything either. Anyway, there are a few cars behind me and 1 infront of me, but about 10-15 cars ahead.

I approach an intersection and see a truck coming and slowing down, but he doesn't have his turn signal.

Thinking nothing of it, I keep going, approaching the intersection but going maybe 40 now cause of the left hand turn.

By the way, there aren't any traffic lights or stop signs here for our road. There is only a stop sign on the road that runs perpendicular to the one I am on.

As I approach the intersection more, the truck slows down as the car infront of me passes it. Once again, I'm not really worried about the truck because I think that he's going to turn, but is going to wait until I pass.

Boy was I wrong!

A few seconds later, I remember saying "holy sh*t" cause I saw the truck started to turn on the road.

There was NO way I was going to be able to stop in time. I was certain I was going to plow right into the truck. As fast as I could, I saw no oncomming cars in the T intersection waiting at the stop sign, so I threw it from 4th into 2nd and skidded down the road the truck was turning onto, litterarlly 10 feet in front of him, avoiding the accident.

I'm still really shaken up over this and I can't believe it happened.

JESUS. Just because you're driving within the limits of the law doesn't mean other people are. Be aware!!

If it hadn't been for the improved handling from your strut tower braces, you probably wouldn't have made the turn!

Accidents with trucks aren't pretty good thing you managed to avoid it

EDIT: Imagine if you were driving a civic or something:eek3:

I think everyone is out to get us. Those of you who haven't had a close call or accident i'd stay off the road with your rex.
