Hello. I had a scary incident on Friday, January 17 2014, and have been thinking about it and if it could have been prevented. I was driving on a state highway in pg county md when I heard a loud bang and my car suddenly swerved sharply to the left and crossed the center line into the path of an oncoming dump truck. Obviously I was able to react quickly enough and force my car back into the correct lane and then off to the side of the road. It took every bit of strength I had. The truck was just about 30 feet away and if the break had been a second or so later there would have been no time to react. My mechanic said it was a broken strut assembly and that he had never seen one break like that. It was pretty traumatic to think I could have been dead... occasionally I read about an accident where a vehicle crosses the center line into the path of another vehicle. We are left with the assumption that this was due to driver inattention or impairment. When you investigate, do you ever find that these accidents are due to the failure of a vehicle part" if so, can you see ways that these accidents can be prevented, perhaps by having certain parts inspected regularly" thank you for your attention to this issue.
