Thank you for all the prayers. I am the widow of Raymond Johnson. I had no idea there was a comment board like this. It is a really long story on how and why ray was walking along the road. And i still have a lot of question my self. Like why did the driver have 3 diffrent stories and why after he hit ray the driver pulled over and open the hood. Yes ray was walking on the white line but when he was hit the side of his head hit the top of the grill and then the front of his head hit on the side of pavement closest to the dirt and his body then landed in the grave almost 60 ft from where is head hit. The officers never stopped traffic and all the cop cars disrupted the seane so they couldnt even tell were rays feet were. In fact they didnt do a very good job at all. now i am not blaming the truck driver. but i do know that ray would never kill himself it was just a accident. Its been two years and i miss him so much. also if he did comment sucide why did i get a settlement from the insurince company. Not that my husbands life is worth what we got, but it proves somewhat of what i am saying. I wish i could now put the cops in there place because they didnt do there jobs right and didnt even care.

To reply to everyone in general that have posted on this though its a bit late. I just found this so posting now. Thank you all for the prayers for my husband whom was driving that semi, Yes, it was ruled a suicide the man was drunk and walked MILES from his home and jumped out of the ditch like a deer would do. There were no homes nor cars for miles in the area so it was completely dark!! My husband had nightmares for 2 years due to this accident, quit working as a firefighter and is no longer a semi driver.
