That was pretty much the demise of my old escort. A tractor trailor in front of me lost a retread, and it was coming at
me horizontally at about 6 million miles an hour (Ok, Im rounding up...) it hit square on the tinted part of the
windshield, and went right through the glass and peeled the roof back like a sardine can. (Ok, so it basically WAS a
sardine can!). Luckily I saw it coming and ducked.
