Default It'* totalled (now with pics)

So I'm driving one of our semi'*, cruisin down the highway, minding my own business and getting ready to turn left into a stackyard to grab another load of hay. I hit my jake and my blinker about half a mile from where I'm turning and start slowing down. I'm downshifting, getting all 40,180 pounds of truck slowed down to turn, start my turn and see a flash of black across the drivers window. BOOOOOM! Another truck was trying to pass me on the left hand side, and I turned right into him. I wasn't wearing my seatbelt ( ) so it threw me out of my seat, I hit the door then bounced to the floor. I swear we slid for about 15 minutes, but it was more like 5-6 seconds. While we were sliding my brake pedal was still in reach, I pressed the pedal and I came to a stop, the other truck slid another 10 feet or so. The funny thing was, is just after I hit the brake while I'm laying on the floor, my phone started ringing, and my first thought was that I gotta stop the truck so I can answer the phone.

I'm kinda babbling right now, I'm in a lot of pain, but I'm ok and so is the other guy. As ok as it can be anyways. I've got a buttload of pics, but right now I'm gonna pop some aspirin and go to bed.

Is it even LEGAL for a vehicle that big to pass in an opposing lane?
