| ||On May 20, 2002, a day that will live in infamy, a semi truck passed too close to my rig and this is what happened. The truck roared on as I crashed, but I had only 2 small cuts. My son and stepson helped recover what we could from the wreckage.|
Hiway 8 West of Gila Bend|
The scene is 30 miles West of Gila Bend Arizona. Highway 8 is totally blocked until some trucks circled the wreck by pulling onto the median.
It Still Runs|
Missing a windshield and with jammed doors, it still ran well enough to pull away.
Clearing the Road|
