And, this is what I hit/side-swiped, and where it was parked.

Glad you're alright.
Sorry about the SVTF At least it can be replaced. Been there, done that so I know how it feels.

It happened SO fast, I'm still trying to figure out exactly what happened.
There was a split second glare from the sun in my face,
whether from the back of the truck, one of it's mirrors, or maybe from the white house I don't know.
All I know, is I turned away and in the blink of an eye, before I could turn back there was a green fed ex logo in my passenger window and glass was flying all over me.

I took the blame, and got a "Failure to use Caution" ticket.
BUT...now that I look closer, I'm really disappointed I didn't take a pic of exactly how the truck was parked.
#1. I believe he was as far forward as the fire hydrant.
#2. I believe his back end was out in the path of traffic.
This is a very narrow road, with cars parked on each side more often than not.
I'm afraid of hitting a car's mirror if someone is coming towards me, let alone the back end of a wide truck.

I'm going to take a couple pics of the area and bring them to court with me on Monday.
Hopefully that'll get the citation reversed, and may even help take some of the blame off me insurance wise.

I don't think the responding Officer paid much attention to how the truck was parked since I mentioned the glare in my eyes to him right away.

I wish I'd stop shaking...
This is really bummin' me out right now.
In my youth, I had more than my fair share of twisted metal, but this is freaking me out.
I'm glad noone was in the passenger seat.

And, thanks for the well wishes.
I was writing the story while you folks were responding.

I'm OK, but not feeling very normal right now.
