There are 27 comments on the CBS 11 story from Jun 7, 2008, titled 18-Wheeler Crashes Into Grand Prairie Home. In it, CBS 11 reports that:

At first, Steve Fedorko thought lightning hit his front yard. "It sounded like a huge bomb."

An 18-wheeler drove through his door a few seconds later.

The accident happened around 3:00 a.m. Saturday. The driver, Brandon Ray Tillmon, had just picked up a load of clean linens destined for Methodist Hospital in Dallas when he lost control of the rig on Carrier Parkway in Grand Prairie.

Investigators say Tillmon had no chance of escaping, he was pronounced dead on scene.

Grand Prairie Police are still trying to figure out what caused Tillmon to lose control. The truck ran up into the yard, hitting a tree before bursting into flames.

Hi Brandon, I have been thinking about you. Your birthday is coming up. I cannot believe that it has been almost a year since the accident. I really miss you. I miss you being goofy and making me laugh. I miss you telling me how perfect I am and how I need to loosen up. I have been trying to take your advice, I wish we could talk, I have so much to tell ya. Miss you.
