Okay lets go with this? Where was that little girls parents? maybe if they were watching their kid that would not have happened. Maybe this so called pedestrian was drunk and stupid and just was wandering around and the driver was the neatest thing since crunchy peanut butter behind the wheel and just did not see him? "What if it" to the end but we don't have the facts so lets just wait and see.
Driver killed 8/7 in Loves Parking lot in Odessa TX?????

media didn't say the pedestrian was drunk & stupid, nor wandering around. i agree on waiting for all the facts to be disclosed but however it doesn't excuse his driving the way he did in a parking lot.
if this happened to me, i wouldn't expect nothing less than what i had coming & i would admit to my fault.
if this were ur relative (wife, child, cousin, mom/dad, sibling, etc) u would want answers, & want the driver to pay for what he did; i'm not judging u i'm just merely saying
the media isn't showing alot of stuff right now & am willing to bet that will be the end of what is said about it in the media
A Sallisaw, Okla., man was killed Tuesday morning after being struck by a tractor-trailer at a truck stop off Interstate 20 in Odessa.
Ralph Wayne Cardwell, 67, was pronounced dead in the parking lot of Love's Truck Stop, 1901 W. Interstate 20.
According to an Odessa Police Department news release, Cardwell was walking in the parking lot just east of the gas pumps when a Lawrenceville, Va., man identified as Kevin Christian Rozema, 29, struck Cardwell as Rozema was traveling toward the gas pumps.
Rozema did not see Cardwell, according to the news release.
The investigation is still ongoing, the news release stated, and there are no citations or charges yet.
Again we know nothing. No mention of speeding, driver drunk, pedestrian drunk absolutely nothing but a man is dead and a driver is more than likely beside himself with grief. All I'm saying is don't be like the media and condemn the man before he's had his day in court.not4hire, bullhaulerswife and hhmag70 Thank this.

People really need to pull their heads out of their rectums in truck stops. I know we've all seen these idiots in truck stops on a regular basis. Likewise, people walking through lots need to generally show more awareness of their surroundings, as well. I don't know exactly how things transpired here, but I don't need to in order to know it was avoidable.lonelyswmtrucker and TRKRSHONEY Thank this.

dang thats a fd up way to go for real i seen alot of drivers walking thru the parking lots not paying any attention of their surroundings but the guy driving the truck has the responsability to spot walkers. I dont think this is the end to this case at all. Maybe he was driving a Pete with no air on the seat tryin to look real cool i dont know. But really everybody please slow down in the lots. May God have that driver in heaven RIP.NavigatorWife Thanks this.
Here's the guy that ran the guy over. Defiantly someone that should SLOW DOWN
