indeed it would. as a trucker, i see stuff like this all the time, although not usually fatal. if theres a difficult left turn, i just turn right and do whatever to get turned around. several years ago, i had a guy turn left in front of me in my pickup, i t-boned him at 40 mph...i barely hit the brakes. i remember seeing his face as i hit the car. he wasn't killed....but i wanted to strangle him. he had no insurance, no license, and was drunk. broke my arm, and missed 6 weeks of work.

I've had people pull out infront of me while I'm towing heavy loads. So many idiots out there think that a big truck can stop on a dime.

That news article was written like bad fiction though:


Wayne Jackson knelt and took a drag on a Newport cigarette Friday, staring at the twisted metal that once was a car carrying two souls.

Sounds like those dime novels my wife reads :laugh:

:laugh: I was thinking the same thing. I think the writer is trying for a pulitzer on that one.
