Fortunately, the truck driver was paying attention and was able to swerve off onto the right shoulder, his cab coming to a stop adjacent to the car that had pulled out in front of him. Had the truck driver been distracted, at least one person would have died that morning.
From J.S. Brooks Presents to all of you, "Let's be careful out there." Stay safe on the roads everyone. Follow the rule of thumb of mountain driving ... whatever lane the truck is in is not the lane for you (if you can avoid it). Give these big, heavy rigs the room they need and the respect they deserve.
