I know I've preached on here about the importance of trailer brakes before so you guys hauling with trailers take note. This happened while towing roughly 5000lbs (not wood) and a delivery truck decided to make a quick left in front of me. I didn't have enough room to get it all stopped (big downhill run) but the impact was relatively slow-speed. I was traveling about 40 MPH initially. I knew my trailer brakes are worn and have 4 brand-new backing plate assemblies in the garage which were to be installed after this weekend's run. Just insult to injury I guess. No damage to the other truck and mine is pretty minor. Drivers side fender, hood, bumper, radiator, shroud, support and fan, grille and left side headlight/bucket. I know many of us carry much more weight on lighter-duty trucks. (Mine is a 1-ton.) Thankfully newer trucks have much better braking systems but you should still never trust just the truck brakes. Didn't help that I was 45 miles from home either.
