    Never do a U-turn in a semi. It only takes a split second for this kinda thing to happen.

    I don't have anywhere near enough evidence here to determine how this happened, so I'm not going to blame either party.

    I do hope the officer will survive, though.

    Not smilin' now. Such a shame, Oak Creek was my old stompin' grounds, and I think there's a lot more to the story, as usual. 10:30 at night, off-duty and away from the city,, right after the Packers, I just don't know.

    Turns out the truck was on a prohibited road. There is a no trucks sign on Nicholson Road and that road has a 3 ton weight limit,year round.
