 Description of the problemHad my cruise control set at 70 mph on my dodge ram 1500 truck as i was approaching an 18 wheeler i tap my brake to disengage my cruise and it didn't so i tapped it again and same results and there was cars on my left so i had to take the shoulder of the highway i was applying the brakes as hard as i could but i continued to gain speed ( the cruise was stuck and would not disengage) and had to take the shoulder. I continued to gain speed and ran out of shoulder so i had to cut left back to the highway and hit the trailer of the 18 wheeler. It slowed me down and i cut back behind the trailer and started to gain speed. The 2 cars that was to my left had passed so i cut left and turned off the key and began to slide. I slid about 100 feet and into the median. Also the air bags never deployed. My truck was totaled but fortunately there was no injuries other than a few bruises to me and my 2 passengers. There also was no injuries to the driver of the 18 wheeler.
