On my way home from work this evening, coming around a turn at about 50mph (below speed limit), there was a 10-14" rock about 3 feet in from the right lane marker line. I couldn't swerve too far, as there was a car coming in the other lane. I hit the rock, and it blew out my right front tire. AAA towed it to my house. There is also a 4" crack in the spoiler, and the foglight is busted up. I haven't been able to get under it yet, but i have a feeling the soon-to-be reinforced front sway bar, strut, mounts didn't have fun with the rock. I took pictures of the rock and where it was, and the damage it did. It is a state road. Aside from insurance, can anyone (any entity) be held liable for the damage?
