BIG rigs don't stop on a dime, horrible, perhaps it was a suicide or the person was confused. . . .disheartened, hitchhikers or pedestrians don't belong alongside interstate...nonetheless, its tragic

Any fatality is a tragedy. Two questions puzle my mind: Why was this person wlking next to the highway, and why the truck had to get out of the highway and into the shoulder at that very moment?

May God receive this person's soul.

WebTeam - Just exactly what is a "semi accident"? Is that only a 'part accident'? Or do you mean 'an auto-pedestrian accident involving a semi...'?

Also, how does an accident "close NB (northbound) I-25 in both directions"? Did it close I-25 in both directions or is traffic traveling in more than one direction on "NB I-25"?

Mario - I must disagree with you. Not all fatalities are tragedies.

i hate it when a truck has any accident we alwyas get blamed. i drove by south on i-25 bout 4 pm they had two DOT troopers doing a level 1 inspection on the truck, its ridiculous, driver kills a guy an still gets the blame, i heard the guy wondered into traffic and the navajo driver had no time. besides its illegal to walk on an interstate

What a drag......But while we are talking about people being hit on the road I'm going to through my 2 cents worth in.

I drive a tow truck. Yesterday, and thismorning I was picking up dead cars next to U S 285 in Turkey Creek Canyon. These people drive like assholes. There is a move over law in this state that says you move over or slow down when someone is working next to the road. Only 1 car out of about 300 that passed me moved over, including Bailey towings big rig. When your car breaks down, you want me or one of my counterparts there right now to bail you out. But when I am picking up someone else my don't mean squat to you and you cut it as close as possable. GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS COLORADO DRIVERS.

I always try to move over for cops or tow truck drivers on the side of the road.

But related to the topic of this accident; there was no good reason for that person to be walking on the highway. One article I read even said that they were trying to walk on the highway east to west...How stupid/intoxicated/suicidal do you have to be to do that?!
