So Friday I pull into my home town and park at the truck stop. Too much snow to get into my driveway. Anyhow a Crete driver had just parked as I crossed the interstate. Fast forward to today, as I was working on my truck a local cop pulls up to do a welfare check on the Crete driver and found him deceased in the sleeper.

RIP Driver

Very Sad tale, RIP driver. Saddest thing is with the average age of drivers heading north, I am sure this is not a completely uncommon occurrence.

Drive Safe and God Speed.

Nobody I've talked to here at the Kingstown, PA terminal knows anything else on this.


A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
