I second the opinion that the semi driver was stupid at not pulling over. Good to see that you're okay.

I am glad you didn't get hurt badly, that's a serious accident.

Looks like it was slammed onto something repeatedly. Likely due to the multiple car hits, and it rattled in the box

I'm kindof ticked actually... looking at your pics again there seems to be little damage to the semi in question that caused this pile-up. And that's just not fair: He causes it and gets to drive away relatively unscathed? Wrong!

Hopefully HIS insurnace will cover the cost of replacing your system and your truck, and when that happens, I'd say get one These babies:


So maybe he'll think twice before stopping is damn semi in the middle of the road. Growl.

Holy shit! Good thing you're alright. The rig is not a big deal at all; all that matters is that you're still in one piece.

That looks like a pretty serious accident.
I'm glad that you're okay after that.
You're a very lucky man to still be here to post about it.
Were you hurt at all?

Sorry about your rig, and vehicle, and whatever else was damaged, but after a crash like that I wouldn't worry about those things right away.

Judging from the photos you took, it looks like this second impact was a direct hit to the truck's gas tank. The more I think about it, the more I realize just how lucky you are!

Glad to hear your ok. The truck is F**Ked. Have you tried to fire up your rig, It looks alright to me, nothing some zip ties and duct tape wont fix. The dents give it character . I hope everything works out and you get your rig up and running soon.

I'm glad to hear you're alright as well.

However I'm also interested as to the posting status of the board / other components. The mobo and GFX don't look too bad, the mobo looks so bad because its propped up by the mouse. I've had a motherboard that had a fairly significant bend in it, but it still ran fine. It might be a good durability test for reviews to send all products through a crash, though it would suck to be the reviewer who has to set up the test each time.
