    But, will this be classified as an avoidable or unavoidable accident?:happy-very:

    Knowing how UPS is, probably avoidable.

    Haven't talked to him but I understand he is really shook up as u can imagine. Evidently someone in a pickup swerved over in front of him and hit him head on. Unfortunately the person in the pickup didn't survive. More detail next week as I'm on vacation this week and out of the feeder news loop. I do pass him a couple a times a week and talk to him on the radio for a couple of minutes. I'm sure he'll be off for a few days though.
    Here's a link to the story and with another pic:

    Yeah......that driver should have levitated his truck up and over the driver that swerved in front of him.

    You may very well be right. It's to bad about the other driver, though. The original pic looked like it happened in a parking lot or something. Didn't realise there was a fatality involved. So sorry.


    I see the double yellow now that I looked at it again.

    Damn, I didn't realize this was a fatality til I read the story. I thought this was just a fire in a parking lot like Dilly mentioned above. My apologies to anyone I may have offended with my accident remark.
