This morning we had supplies to fetch so we were on the freeway going to Eugene. Traffic was heavy and we were flanked by semi's and doing about 65mph. Suddenly in one lane near us, a semi hit a 20 foot extension ladder in the road! It flew up and over and landed in our lane! Mike couldn't swerve (to much traffic) so he hit it,and thankfully only clipped the end that was already smooshed. We pulled over as soon as we could to check for damages and I had the major shakes when we stopped. But the truck is fine, and we are too. Had we been in our car and not the SUV the outcome might have been different.
