    FYI we have lost one of our drivers last week.

    Jerry G Adkerson, 48, a 19 year veteran employee died when he lost control of his package car on the interstate, crossed the median, and crashed head on into a tractor trailer rig. It happened in Missouri January 23. HE is survived by his mother, a son, two daughters, and several brothers and sisters. No work on whether he was wearing the seat belt, but it is doubtful it would have made a difference in this case, after veiwing the photo of the accident scene.

    My prayers go out to his family, and the coworkers he leave behind.

    Losing a friend, fellow employee or anyone else is always a sad day, no matter what the cause. I will have a good thought for the deceased and their families.

    Man thats tough, we are on the roads alot everyday and our chances of gettin in an accident are high, anytime we lose one it hurts, my prayers go out to his family. That could have been any driver, everyone be careful and be safe, say a prayer for his family.[​IMG]
