    Speaking of "bailing", a very tragic story, and one Marten would like to forget. Many years ago, when Hy.151 out of Madison was 2 lane, right in front of the Sun Prairie Truck Driving School, a Marten driver, possibly a new, was going up 151, looked at the school, I think they attended, a car was stopped making a turning left, waiting for traffic, the truck driver looked up, and someone told him, in a crash, the best place to be is in the sleeper. Well, rather than evasive action, he bails into the sleeper, mowing over the car, killing both occupants. That story circulated for years, and I think was one reason they made 151 a 4 lane.
