While going through Oklahoma City a wheeler once again was not looking where she was going and this time I was caught up in four wheeler drama. I don't know how to embed video in post so you will have to click the link below

Video: Four Wheeler Causes Accident

By jumping onto the highway and immediately shooting across all lanes of traffic without signaling, this 4-wheeler caused a minor accident with Guyjax's big rig.

Did not speak to her anymore than I had to by law which states I have to make sure they are alright and check for injuries.

Loocked like you got hit from behind too, saw the truck kind of jerk forward, was that just a bad gear change?

bummers on the day.. Atleast you had the cam.. Something Im thinking of investing in when I get back out.

Yeah good example of why we Truckers need Cameras these days because these 4 Wheelers will just put the blame on us if we don't protect ourselves.

Good job, you saw that coming a mile away!

I actually almost had the same thing happen to me in OKC. A 4 wheeler was coming on my side of the interstate from the pull off that only authorized vehicles are allowed to use. Without looking that driver went into the left lane then into the right lane right in front of me. Had to swerve to the left to avoid that dumbas$. Lucky for them because I was going 62mph they would have died.

OKC has some terrible drivers seriously.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

I was a bit shook up and a bit in shock cause I could not believe that just happened. shifted from 10 down to 4th gear and dumped the clutch almost killing the truck.
