    I drive through there all the time. Pochahantas to Poplar Bluff is a congested two lane. The (future) I-57’s first completed stretch is going to be a 4 mile bypass around Corning. Supposed to start this year.

    Same here. Usually I take that route if I’m running from Texas up to Illinois (usually the central or eastern part of the state)especially along I-57.

    More boomerism at play.
    Actually, with him it's pre-boomerism.

    82 is too old to be driving a huge truck down the highway, even if he can "pass" the physical.

    Honestly, I would way rather work with those good ol boys than these cookie cutter, no common sense, can’t back a trailer, can’t shift a manual, can’t make a tight turn, can’t do any maintenance whatsoever, down to changing a fuse, can’t imagine running 16 hours in 14 hours, don’t even know what paper logs are, never heard of using mirrors, merging smoothly is unheard of to them,some cant even speak English legibly driving school riff raff. And here are a few periods to imagine in that sentence if the length bothers anyone……………..Also, as far as his physical condition, I haven’t seen many people of his age bracket that are still driving that are majorly out of shape. The fat slobs are usually about 50 years younger than he is.

    Old or young, dollars to doughnuts the truck was speeding and not looking ahead for the car to do the stupidity it did.

    Heading either direction I get tailgated and/or passed by trucks too impatient or important to follow the speed limit.
