He's doing OK, his truck is not.

On Saturday we watched from our back fence as the fire department worked on an accident victim. It seemed to us the guy must have crawled up from in the ditch after his truck went into it.

Today I ran into one of the police officers that worked the site of the accident on Saturday and was able to get a few details. The driver fell asleep at the wheel, hit the streetlight standard, careened across the street and down 100 feet to the bottom of the ditch. He crawled up the embankment. He had some injuries but is doing well.

The police officer said he should have been killed. The police officer said the guy should buy a lottery ticket.

The truck was totaled, but then, we guessed that.

Falling asleep at the wheel is a major cause of accidents, fall asleep, or with alcohol. Near where I live, there is a road, and every weekend is heard a crash!. It is like an epidemic
