    It's hard to find a lot of info on this accident, but here is what I found.
    A car broke down on the Girard Point Bridge sometime after midnight on the 16th. He was struck from behind by a UPS feeder from NY. I don't know driver details and I don't think it would be appropriate to post that info anyway even if I did have it.
    I was told by a feeder sup that the car had no lights on and I know for a fact that the bridge is very dark. It was also raining.

    Very tragic for all who are involved. I feel really bad for the guy that was killed. As well as the driver of the UPS vehicle. I know this would eat me up inside.

    This is one of the only news stories I could find and it is very brief.
    Stories like this really hurt me to my soul. He was so young and, by reading his MySpace, I gather he was well loved and will be terribly missed.

    His name was Mike Ski.:sad-little:

    You know how hard it is to get info out of a sup sometimes. It's like pulling teeth. I'm sure UPS is keeping this hush hush as much as possible, but I will keep pestering till I find the results of the "investigation"/railroading.:wink2:
