    Makes me want to give up driving and get an office job.

    First one in Sacramento this morning. crotch rocket, hit a pothole, lost control and got ran over by a semi. Blood and guts for about 100 yards..Horrifying. I can just imagine how that trucker feels right now. Took about 4 hrs to clean up that mess.


    Second one. CR England pulling a mall wart trailer, nasty wreck, westbound 80 in truckee, by exit 184/185. Had to have fell asleep or something. Hit an embankment and cab was almost the opposite way. Was a junkliner, so if he's alive, then he better count his lucky stars.

    Be safe guys, in an instant it could be all gone
     
    Everett and Jarhed1964 Thank this.

    Dang....thats why my girl is opposed to me getting a bike. That must have been horrible. CR England....and they wonder why they get pointed out all the time with all the starter companies having accidents. Either way hope the driver is alive. Thats why life insurance is a good thing.

    Its unfortunate but really keeps you in check! Daily! When you aren't thinking about safety is when stuff like that happens!

    I'll be honest...

    This is a scary job, IMO. At least, certain prospects of it, can be scary...

    Riding in the rain at four in the morning and lost it. The driver tried, but couldn't avoid his body in the road.

    Thats why I want to buy a boat and go fishing instead of a crotch rocket.
