    The truck driver gets hit by a four wheeler who then leaves the scene and it is the truck driver's fault? He's to blame? Come on drivers! You sound just like the media / FMCSA / law enforcement / company safety department / insrance company lawyer...........

    As a flatbedder I know things happen and we need to pull over and tighten or adjust things. Don't ever trust 4 wheelers. On ramps are always better than off ramps for the vehicles are moving slower.

    HAha that's funny . The cops played a hunch and figured this guy goes to work this same way every morning and waited for him the next day. Then he actually stops to look for his mirror. Busted!

    I deliver to the lumber yard across from the speedway on Ravine pretty often. I've never seen the D Ave/131 exit really congested, probably distracted driver of the 4-wheeler.
