Tractor – Trailer versus Tree

How many time have I been reporting (un-necessary 6, 10 ad/or 18 wheeler accidents)?
Well, this time I was a first hand witness and first to help the driver.
When is it past time for control of our truck traffic in this country?
Tractor – Trailer versus Tree in Lake County Florida on 44 just before the St Johns River Bridge.
Florida 44 Eastbound


Leaving Lake County 42, Florida 44 draws to within five miles of DeLand. Photo taken 05/12/08.
No one died, no injuries, so no media reporting!

If this driver, for whatever reasons, did not pull off the road.
Because if he did not this family and about a dozen other vehicles would not be with you today!
We were all stopped at the bridge and we were car number 6 of about 12, when this truck hit that big Oak Tree feet from my passenger side window, doing in access of 60 miles per, without hitting his air brake or any other brake!
To top this off, we were forced to leave the scene by a big black pickup truck on our P.T Cruiser bumper, revving his engine and blasting his horn!
Did this pickup cause the accident?
No one will ever know!
Tractor – Trailer versus Tree, who loses?
Actually both!

The tractor is a total loss, but the tree was moved a few feet, so it will also die sooner or later.
However.
We are alive!
Union Drivers cannot be pressured into driving reckless or be fired to meet a companies quote or timeline!
