Today, I got into my first car accident. I side swiped the truck next to me merging into another lane. He was in my blind spot. It was a cop. FML

or position your mirrors correctly so you don't have a blindspot - YDI for being a dumbass

Well he sort of deserves it for sitting in your blind spot. Blaming one person is only the bs way to get out of being at fault. My father taught me that bot being at fault is a lot harder than just not being in an accident in the first place, speed up or slow down if in someone's blind spot. Let's make the roads full of less idiots.

OP was merging into the next lane, incidentally containing a cop. It doesn't matter if he was "sitting" in his blind spot. OP is in the wrong in all cases. However, this begs the question: cops drive trucks now?

From the way it's worded Op has a big blind spot... "side swiped the truck next to me". Yes maybe you should move if you are in someone's blind spot.. if you both realize that's where you are and have the space to move. I don't know about you but when I'm driving I generally don't think about where I am in position to the car next to me as long as we both are in our lanes.

That sucks. That's why you should always be aware of everything around you when driving. It could be worse though. You could have injured/killed the cop. I hope the cop wasn't a complete dick about it. I had an accident with an FBI agent in a government car... Not a pleasant experience.

Who cares?

Thank you for asking that profound question regsworld11. At first, it may seem puzzling to not know who cares, but you know what they say. There are no stupid questions, only stupid people. So I am here to assist you in the question you have asked. A short answer would be that we cannot tell who cares. No one has made a reply saying, "I care", so it is pretty much impossible to know. I would just like to tell everyone that I care, though. I really hope that answered your question. If you need any other help, just give me a shout!
