    "During the speech, a supporter yelled out, "Give 'em Hell, Harry!" Truman replied, "I don't give them Hell. I just tell the truth about them, and they think it's Hell."

    Subsequently, "Give 'em Hell, Harry!" became a lifetime slogan for Truman supporters."

    That's so sad, condolences to their families. I couldn't do what the emts, fire & police do. I'll never forget the time I was in Atlanta and some crazy cager sideswiped my trailer then tried to tell the law I did it to him(found out he had a rental and was trying to make my company pay for his mistake) but the hypo that answered the call had tears in his eyes and had just came from a bad wreck on the watermelon 500. That got me sad....

    Distracted,fatigued or a combination of both.
    Take your pick.
    Ironically I would’ve expected the Bob Evans Cascadia driver to have been killed on impact,given that there’s nothing left of that truck except a door and the smokestack,not to mention that driver was ejected! The Mack driver unfortunately died even though the cab of that truck stayed relatively intact!
