I heard today that one of our brothers (also a steward) had an extremely serious crash on his way to work yesterday. From what I pieced together through the rumor mill, an animal ran across his path while he was on his motorcycle and when he swerved to avoid it, lost control and crashed. The last I heard, he was in intensive care and was in an out of consciousness. I've heard the injuries include multiple broken ribs, a broken collar bone, a broken leg and extreme damage to one eye. To sum up the type of steward he is, I've always gone to him with my problems because he's someone that takes management head on for the drivers. He doesn't beat around the bush and calls managements 'bull' when he hears about it. The ironic part is, he's part of the safety committee and the day previously had a skateboard tied to a rope with a baby doll on the skateboard. He then proceeded to hide behind his truck and toss the skateboard and doll out in front of our vehicles leaving the building to make us think a bit more about how much responsibility we have to the public to drive safely. On a positive note, it has been said that he'll make a recovery but I get the feeling it will be a long one and our center will surely miss him for the time he's away. Get well soon, bro.
