Isn't it sad that the news has to state that that guy stayed at the scene - as if that's not what's expected !!
Given recent history, it's not what's expected....I was surprised when I read it.

Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

This is unacceptable! This poor guy has been through enough since he got on the job, the last thing he needed was to get hit by a truck. Please pray for his recovery.

Fortunately, he's built like a brick shit house but you never know what could turn up down the road. Personally, I don't think anyone can be okay after getting hit by a few thousand pounds in motion.
There's just no way you could miss this guy on the side of the road between his frame and his shiny q-ball head, so this douchebag CT operator should be made to turn in his truck for some walking shoes.
