Car Vs Truck

On the way to pick up my boy I came across an accident. A semi was making a right hand turn and a car decided to try to turn before him. Quite obviously with bad results for the car. When I got there the car was partially under the trailer but before I could get over there to take pics the truck was moved back. Here is what I was able to get.

In the first pic you can see the scrape along the bottom where it was pushed up against the curb.
The lesson here being twofold. Dont "pick a fight" with a larger vehicle and don't cut in front of a truck trying to make a right hand turn (That IS why they have signs on the back after all)

In this pic you can see the extent of the damage to the driver side.
