I'll try to keep this long story as short as possible. I missed my exit/got lost twice in Portland yesterday (Thursday 11/3). I was headed south on a road, took an exit that would loop me under that road and put me on a bridge to get back across the river (which I crossed when I missed one of my exits). The curve in the road was too sharp for my truck since I was in the left lane, so I signalled to get into the right lane. No one let me over. Literally no one. I finally had no choice but to stop in the middle of the lane because if I kept going I would hit the side of the underpass. Still, nobody was letting me over. I got so fed up, I shut my truck off and called the police to come out and stop traffic so I could finally get over. An hour passed, the police hadn't showed up, and cars (and a half dozen city buses) were passing me in the other lane. Finally a dump truck comes along and tries to squeeze past me. He knocks off my mirror and damages the front of my truck. He stops, and I walk over to tell him that he damaged my truck. As I walk back to my truck, he takes off...not to pull off to the side so he can exchange insurance information...he just leaves entirely, fleeing the scene. I call the police back and let them know what happened. Another hour passes and still no police. Another dump truck comes along and I stop the guy and tell him that he won't make it past me without hitting me. He tells me to take the photographs I need then move my truck down the road where there's a turn out. So I do that. I take the pictures then move my truck while he keeps traffic stopped for me. I move my truck to the turn out he mentioned, then I call the police back to tell them I'm unstuck. They said an officer came out but didn't see me so he left. I told her my location again and it turns out that when I called the first time, they got mixed up and thought I was on the opposite side of the river, which is why they never showed up to where I actually was. A short time later the officer calls me and just exchanges all the necessary information over the phone, then I go on my way. I gave him the best description I could of the guy who did the hit and run, and there's a good chance they'll be able to track him down. This morning I talked to my company about everything that happened, and I have to wait up to two weeks to see if they classify it as "preventable" (my fault) or "non-preventable" (not my fault) :/

Sorry for super long comment. So yeah...that was my day.

Dude that sucks big time! Do you drive a big rig? Box truck? People generally let you in here, but once in a while you'll get an asshole that won't.

I take it no dash cam? After my last accident I made sure to get one. $100 would saved me $400 in deductible. Glad you're ok.

If you hadn't said you were in Portland, I would have sworn you were in Buffalo. That sucks. I just hope you don't work for Swift. They terminated a friend for a similar incident that wad not his fault. Good luck out there.

Not exactly the brightest bulb in the box, although I guess he just panicked and knew his ass was going to get in big trouble. Only problem is, he's now multiplied his problems tenfold.
