I WAS MOVING TOWARD A STOP SIGN AND SLOWING AS USUAL. THE ROAD IS LEVEL AND IT WAS DRY. SUDDENLY THERE SEEMED TO BE NO BRAKING AND THE NEXT THING I KNEW I HAD BEEN HIT BY A TRUCK TRAVELING AT RIGHT ANGLES FROM MY LEFT. I APPARENTLY WENT THROUGH THE STOP SIGN. I BROUGHT THE CAR TO A STOP SAFELY AT THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TO CHECK ON THE TRUCK WHICH HAD SWERVED INTO A FENCE. THE DRIVER OF THE TRUCK WAS CUT BY GLASS. MY CAR HAD THE BUMPER AND GRILL TORN OFF AND UNIBODY BENT. THIS WAS A BRAKE FAILURE. UNLIKE SOME REPORTS, THE ROAD WAS NOT ROUGH. THIS WAS A LOW SPEED FAILURE. ANOTHER FEW FEET AND MY DRIVER'S DOOR WOULD HAVE BEEN HIT AND I COULD HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED.
