Update:

The cab was dark blue/purple, possibly a sleeper cab, and it was carrying a large white box.

I did not see any identifying numbers or names on it.  The cab was a newer model though, very shiny paint.

Original Story:

2This morning at approximately 2:15AM I was traveling the southbound lanes of 495 between the Telegraph Rd and Eisenhower Ave exits in Alexandria, VA, and was hit by an 18 wheeler.

The truck hit me so hard on my drivers door that the side of the truck punctured the steel of my door (as you can see in the pictures) and he ended up dragging me for several feet at 60 miles per hour before I was able to break free and slide across four lanes of traffic.

The scariest part was when my rear left tire blew and I felt my car begin to fishtail towards his trailer.

I thought for sure that I would end up under the trailer and crushed by his tires.

Thankfully, I made it to the right shoulder and watched the truck slow down and also move onto the shoulder.

Seconds later, I guess he changed his mind and sped up and took off.

He did not even stop to see if I was ok.

This driver could’ve killed me and left my 11 year old without his mother.

I am so very thankful that my guardian angels were with me and that I am still here today, but the driver of the 18 wheeler must be held accountable.

I am begging you all to make this post go viral so that I can find witnesses and/or traffic cam footage that will help me to identify the truck that almost killed me.

I am a single mother who works full time and goes to school in the evenings.

I have no means of transportation and I’m pretty sure my vehicle is totaled.

SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE. YOU MIGHT SAVE A LIFE THE NEXT TIME HE IS ON THE ROAD!!!!!
