This is within 100 feet of where I always park there at that Petro.

No explaining that one away to the bosses.

Rolling a truck is bad enough, rolling one in a parking lot is a special kind of F up.

Grumpy; just going thru some old pics... that's up by Toledo, yes? It looks familiar... is there a cemetery around and behind there? Tom & I used to have a 'hidey hole' out that way when paper logs were a thing, haha! I'm sure loving that stretch/hood right there, too! Wow, the sleeper!

How's your ankle doing these days? I've still got pins & a plate in my radius, right arm; they took the 'set' from my ulna out.. this was all years ago; healed nicely. If my rotator cuff would also... auugh!

And again, in looking ... PackRat; is that YOU, in the green J & R truck...filming? I kinda KNEW you had a YouTube channel, haha! rofl-3.gif

That almost seems like it would take some real effort to accomplish. I mean, have to be going pretty fast and turning at the same time. In a truck stop, that is beyond my comprehension.

Really? Watch a flatbed try to back into a spot with too great an angle. The trailer will tip over at 1 MPH.

That's terrible. I worked as an Accident Investigator for three years and this is unfathomable. He must have hit and jumped like a curb at a really high level of speed. This is the equivalent of burning water in trucking. Unreal.

Ramos;

Didn't you mention that you were a driver at some point as well..also? Neither here nor there; but sometimes things DO get really weird, really quick.

This was part of our Ohio week; two main highways.....talk about unfathomable!!!

Ohio US30 T/T collision .. fatality for one driver.

The dump truck driver jumped MORE than a curb; it was a WHOLE jersey barrier!! ANYone have any clue(s) how ?!?!?

Stay safe, BE safe, fellow drivers (and non!)

ps: Ramos; PLEASE add at least your STATE, to your profile!! Thanks, man.

Yes, just east of Toledo.

There is a cemetery doubts of the TA, which is south of the Petro.

My ankle is healed nicely, but I have arthritis in it. Hurts pretty much all the time, and having my foot on the floor all day makes it worse. I need a wedge on the accelerator

Never been a driver, started of as a recruiter, accident investigator and now DM.

I live south of the border so that's not an option for profile lol.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
