I’ve seen a lot of crazy things while driving a truck. I’ve seen drunk drivers, distracted drivers, INSANE drivers, and just about anything else you can think of. Last week a man passed me while “Taking care of business” if you know what I mean. It’s a sick, twisted, stupid world we live in.
Today, I left Maine after visiting my parents for 2 days. I brought another driver with me so I could drop him at a truck that needed to be recovered and brought back to Maine. The driver had not quit or abandoned the truck, she was involved in an accident. Follow this link and read before you continue. Traffic Accident.
The story does not tell the whole truth. What really happened is a suicide by truck. The pedestrian waited for the truck to be right before him, then ran in front of it. I know this because the driver of that truck was a friend of mine.
I cant imagine how she feels today. It’s not her fault this person felt his life was so bad it needed to end, but that’s not going to help her at this time. My thoughts are with her and the family of that man, in the hopes that all come through this ok.
