Maybe trucks should be banned from Route 32.

the guy was driving southbound, facing into the sun on a bright sunny day. Probably didn't even see the truck due to the reflection. why not ban drivers on sunny days?
The article however, could have had more sympathy in it for the driver. "broadsided" sounds way too harsh. Never mentioned that the driver crossed into the northbound land to take the left at Schofield. You left that up to the readers to figure out.

did the dot truck even try to stop? aren't drivers who hit things usually faulted for not being able to stop their vehicles? this guy actually turned into the oncoming truck's path? something sounds odd here.

The man had a heart attack. Thats why he drove in the path of the truck. He was not killed from the crash. He was already dead.

sickofit...if you read the article the driver was turning left from a southbound lane, yes he turned infront of the truck. It's pretty hard to stop on a dime, and even harder if the truck was carrying a load in it.
bobct...you know for sure he had a hard attack...were you with him?
