Excuse me while I pick myself up off the floor. I just read a story about a truck crash at:–cops-say

that actually had NICE things to say about the truck drivers involved. It seems a novice car driver took a turn too fast, and crashed into a tanker load of fuel. The actions of tanker driver and driver of another involved semi turned what could have been a major crash with multiple fatalities into one where all the involved drivers walked away. (One was treated and released for bruises).

A while back, I put up a post regarding the DOT’s statistics that show around 80% of the car vs. truck crashes are the fault of the car driver, and this is a prime example. It’s a nice change to see the media report give the truck drivers credit for their quick thinking and professionalism in keeping a bad situation from turning worse.

Good Job Michael and Jody!
