Ran over a step ladder!

Driving through Iowa going south to see the eclipse. Doing around 70 when all of a sudden as the truck in front of me goes over something in the road I realize it is a 4 foot or so aluminum step ladder right in the middle of my lane! I couldn't stop or veer around so I ran right over it. It was the long ways in the road so I didn't hit it with my tires, but it did make a sound as I went over it. Looking underneath later I think the lowest point is where the exhaust splits. I think it hit that. It appears everything is ok, but man, I did not expect that!

That could have been a disaster! Back in the day I hit a spare tire on the highway in a Prelude I was driving...pushed the suspension back about an inch on the passenger side.

Driving on the D.C. Beltway in the late 70s I did a quick lane change and immediately found a 4inch pipe with my two passenger side wheels. 72 Fiat 124 w magnesium slotted. Cracked both of them. One lost air via the crack, one lost about 3" of the rim but the bead held. Pulled into a gas station and the local high school kid loaded me up with two tubes of the wrong size and I gingerly limped back to State College Pa... ahhh the carefree college days.
