    Anyone happen to catch a news report about the Tyson truck that rolled over the wall in Waco (Lacy-Lakeview) Monday night, 8/12? It looked grisly. Cab hit a light pole.

    Cops were walking back up the highway to pick up what appeared to be a mattress.

    It was bad, likely fatal, that's why I was surprised it didn't make the news. Judging by the skid marks, a car either hit or swerved to avoid the object on the road and perhaps hit the truck.

    I had a moron in a pickup truck pass me a bit earlier, carrying a mattress that wasn't tied down too good.

    Prayers for the driver. Hope he is back on the move fast.

    Debris on the road sucks, somebody will have to get creative to blame this on the driver.

    It could be anything. Not a long way south of Waco a friend of mine in a single axle pulling a 53 ft reefer loaded with mushrooms hit a black angus bull on the navasota river bridge. It got under his steer axle and took him right off the bridge, they had to gather mushrooms out of the river for miles. lol
