Glad Mr. Johnson is ok. He

Glad Mr. Johnson is ok. He may have done nothing wrong, but rest assured there will be more accidents to come as these type of trucks continue to blaze through the rural parts of the county at high speeds.

JustSo, FYI, he wasn't going

JustSo, FYI, he wasn't going over the posted speed limit. Mr. Johnson, Speedy as he is known to his friends and co-workers, is a fine fella. He's a good driver, but this shows that accidents can and do happen. He took his eyes off the road for a split second, went into the ditch, and as he came back out of the ditch, he hit a culvert, which knocked his steering axle loose. The truck tipped up on the left side and then bounced back hard to the right side, and that's when he was ejected. He came out the open passenger side window and that's the side the truck landed on. I told him, "Speedy, it just wasn't your time." I bet from now on, though, he WILL wear his seat belt. And I think we are going to start calling him LUCKY now, instead of Speedy.

"fine" drivers don't wind up

"fine" drivers don't wind up with their vehicle on it's side and load all over the road. Distracted driver's vehicles do!
