I was right there when the fire trucks arrived. I saw a blue dump truck and a white sheet on the ground. everyone knows what the white sheet is. There is construction going on right there, the county is building a new fire station. I had to turn around my truck because they blocked the hole road off, they had the fire chief, crash truck, pump truck, ladder truck, multiple cops, motorcycle cops, and two emts. that place was loaded with rescue vehicles.

I am sure that this construction worker feels bad enough. Perhaps the pedestrians should not have been walking in a closed lane near construction. If you heard someone yelling "Stop.. lookout!" then clearly you heard the truck back-up alarm going off as well.
