Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

It doesn't look like a meteorite looks.

The person who sent this photo said "this thing fell out of the sky and hit an 18 wheeler and did major damage to the truck."

All I can say is that I've never seen a meteorite this angular and with this pattern on the surface.
 
What is it?

I have no idea. It doesn't look like a natural rock, terrestrial or extraterrestrial. It might be a piece of metal.
