Same happened to me several years ago on Thanksgiving.
I had a Prelude & was sitting at a red light (for Houston folks, at TC Jester and 18th Street). Saw the truck coming behind me FAST (had just enough time to tense up). He smacked me pretty good - totaled the Honda, but I wasnt hurt. He was crying worse than me and how his mom was talking, going home wasnt fun.
Oh, he was 16 - had his license for 1 week. The brakes on his OLD GMC truck failed.
