This happened to the 07 Odyssey on the highway traveling 70mph. Baseball sized debris flung up from road on way to school/work. What you don't see is the 'crater' buckling in the hood that extends about 6-9" around the impact point. Yes those are gouges in the metal underneath.

Estimated repair from Bodyshop: $900.

Yikes! At least no one got hurt. Baseball size chunk flew in the air? dang.

worst I saw was a 4x6' frame made from 1/4" steel I beam laying in the middle of the road, that would total a car!

Wow... must have hit it hard. Lucky that's all it was. :mad:

What color was the object? :huh:



Year or two ago, we noticed freeway traffic swerving around an object ahead, and as we approached, saw it was a built-in dishwasher in the middle of the center lane... upright. The appliance obviously fell off a truck or something. My friend immediately called 911 and reported it, and the 911 operator asked, "where is it," "it's a dishwasher, right?" and the classic... "what color is it?" :tongue:

And my friend said, "What possible difference does it make? It's a dishwasher. It's dishwasher color. It's in the middle of a GD freeway. Somebody's going to die!" :rollingeyes:

We still laugh about that to this day... :DD

Dark brown or black. Maybe a tire chunk, rock or a brake component?

I feel your paint. Last summer I ran over this monster on the road. Its about 12" long by 6.5" tall. I was in my Maxima and thought my front end was gone. Turns out it messed up underside $2.5k worth of repairs and grief later I still shudder to think about that day.
Would love to know WTF that thing is.
Second picture shows some of the damage. You can see the metal was just sliced open. Took out chunks of the tranny bottom cover. I was lucky to walk away in one piece.
good luck,
Max
