      Yeah he was…..everything that goes wrong in the world is due to Texting & Cell Phones.

    Sincerest sympathy to the family. I was AFRAID this might have been a Toys truck as soon as I saw the detailing on it. Every once in awhile Id see his semi at the stop lights on the northside of town, and wed wave. When you see the same vehicles almost daily it feels like you know them.
