My buddy George may not be as convinced of the wisdom of smartcars after he read this story and passed it on to me. Money quote from the truck driver:
He added he had felt a slight bump, but said he thought he had simply driven over a stone in the road.
Instead he had hit the Smart car and its bumper had wedged on the truck’s radiator grill.
The good news is that no one was hurt – although the smartcar owner probably needed new jeans. Perhaps we should keep the Yukon XL.
