Just so you readers know, a Whoops! doesn't have to be of your own truck, and it doesn't even have to be the aftermath of the incident. If you have a great shot of something that is about to happen and is obviously inevitable, then send it in. If you have a shot of an unknown, then send it in. We're sure an unidentified owner wouldn't mind seeing a little glory for his mishap. We know there are pictures floating around of our own truck with waves rolling over the hood at 2 a.m. that we would like to see resurface someday, but that's another story.
