Some people have no business behind the wheel of a vehicle.This poor fellow got ran over on the sidewalk.It's more than a tradgedy or accident.It could have been avoided had someone not let this moron behind the wheel that obviously couldn't drive.Oh well,he insisted he could drive and I didn't want to start an argument,that's how it goes.

I thought along time about whether i would comment on this or not. I know the man driving the truck. H e was a korean and veitnam war veteran purple heart reciepant awarded the bronze star. He doesnt talk about the killing he has seen or had to do for this country. He fought for the right for you to get on here and spew your garbage. It was an accident nothing more nothing less . they feel so bad and it needs to be let go.

If he can't avoid running up on a sidewalk maybe it's time for him to stop driving.

Don't get food stamps,now who doesn't have their facts straight?It doesn't take a genius to figure out what happened.Don't forget about the war record of the poor veteran he ran over.

OUCH!!... You can't educate ignorance... those that never left their backyard only understand what is told/read. I agree with you.

the man killed was the most wonderful sweetist man that walked this earth and he didnt deserve to be run down by by someone that shouldnt be driving in the first place ..his family is heart broken they will carry this to their grave . and those that defend this man should have the same happen to their loved one and then see how they feel.
