Truck Magnet

After my arrival at SEA TAC I rented a compact car at Thrifty. It turned out to be a KIA Spectra. I got on the road, cruising north on I-405, and took the Sunset Blvd exit east. There is a yield sign and I slowed down for traffic on Sunset when I heard this enormous bang and was thrown into my seat belt. Rearended by a Chevy Silverado. I had to use duct tape to keep the trunk lid shut, but the KIA was otherwise still drivable. The Chevy had to be towed! Hurray for KIA. Not a good start of my time in Seattle, though. After the long procedures with police and insurance, I returned the rental car and took a cab. It had reminded me too much of last year’s run in with a dump truck.
