    Well it is a Sysco truck. He delivers to local restaurants/schools/hospitals etc. on a daily route basis.

    Yep, zero chance he's on that road avoiding a toll. And has anyone ever known a driver with a transponder in their truck trying to save their company from paying a toll out of the goodness of their heart?

    "Sir, sorry we were unable to get your order delivered earlier. Our drive is hanging out somewhere near the bridge according to GPS. Must be fishing on lunch break."

    Driver is safe now, btw.

    Says a 4 wheeler caused this. Wonder who was at fault.....trucker and the company are likely to get hosed either way of course. But if a car caused this whole mess....their life is about to get very unpleasent. Also that gal needs to go buy ALL the #### lottery tickets. And whoever made that model of truck and trailer are about to see a huge surge in stock price lol.
