As a Class A Driver/Trainer/Instructor, I can say that there was no reason the man should've been hit (at all). I've made that and/or similar turns on such streets many times. Sometimes (I've seen) some truckers would not take the time for the intersection to clear for them to make the turn. In school, the right turn is one of the main parts of the new student's training, and they HAVE to make that turn safely on the practice pad as well as on the street (in commercial areas). To be hired in a local job, most carriers require at least two years experience over the road (OTR), and this is why. This is the type of driver who gives us all a bad name. Please don't view this driver as a prime example of Truck Drivers; there are many with millions of safe miles, and most of the drivers that I know are of the sort that strive to attain such credentials in their back ground. But I do hope this moron is caught, and maybe even have the same thing done to him. Strap him down in a chair and let a (few) trucks hit and drag him, as he did to this man. Please all pray for this man, as well as for all the other drivers who are going to have to deal with the repercussions of what this moron did. And dude, if you are reading this know this: Even if you escape the wrath of the law here, you will not escape the wrath of the Most High God. ANd when HE gets you, you will not be able to hide. And no one can deliver you devil. Yes I mean you, if you are the one that hit that man. I would pray for you if you turn yourself in, and maybe JAH (ps 68:4 kjv) will have mercy upon you...even though you don't mind NOT showing mercy (at the moment). You deserve what you get. pji
