    Down in Snyder Co?

    Damned shitty thing to do to a person. Walk out in front of them like that.

    Not sure which county. It was between Harrisburg and Selinsgrove somewhere near rt 34 and rt15 if I remember correctly. Messed with the drivers head pretty bad. He quit driving commercial a few months later.

    I was wondering about that, I have often wondered how I'd handle it if something similar had happened to me. I have a friend who was in an accident where the driver was killed but the guy had pulled out in front of him in a Jeep and got T-boned. He reported having no problem with it as it was not his fault.
    Stupidity is inherited, ignorance is a choice.

    Yeah, I don't think that would bother me as much as some kid stepping out in front of me. You've drove long enough to have seen what happens when you smack a deer at highway speed. I can't imagine how that aftermath would effect me if it was a kid.

    Everyone reacts differently, even with broadsiding Bambi. Been there, done that. For me it was playing the scene over and over in my head with woulda-coulda-shoulda. End result was the same, one dead and three injured (including me). Finally worked out that shit happens, I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Locally, our postal clerk T-boned a pickup that ran a stop sign. One dead (14-year-old kid), three injured (including her). Haven't had a chance to talk to her yet. With her it should be easier to live with - they shouldn't have run the stop sign at speed.
