So I'm on my way to work yesterday morning about 8:30 a.m. Road conditions are slick. I'm driving 55 MPH in the passing lane, with the speed of traffic. I need to merge into the driving lane in order to make a right-hand turn. As I merge, my truck fishtails violently to the left and then to the right. As I try to get it straightened out, which, at 55 on a busy highway is damned near impossible, my truck hits the shoulder and launches itself down an embankent, nearly flipping over, narrowly missing a tree and coming to rest a mere 3 ft. short of a large wooden post. The only damage sustained came from when my boss pulled me out with his '06 Chev 3500 dually and the chain crunched in the rear quarter panel a small amount. The airdam was ripped off in the process as well. Probably $200 worth of body work. Here are some pictures. Talk about a close call.
