I was 18 years old, driving my Dad's Ford pickup truck down the highway at 60 MPH.
BANG! Right front tire blowout! Next thing I know, the truck was sitting in the bottom of the ditch, inches away from a telephone pole.
It all happened so fast, I didn't react. I was just sitting behind the steering wheel going along for the ride. I still have no idea how that truck got into the bottom of the ditch. It was as if it literally jumped over into the ditch.
The experience impressed upon me the hope that I never experience a front tire blowout again.
