    I see cars veer off onto the shoulder all the time. All you need is a drunk or someone on a cell phone not paying attention. Of course, it is impossible to say (from the article) if he was on the road, on the shoulder, or off the road. Maybe we will get more information later.

    yes, but the odds of that happening are much much slimmer. Not saying it isn't possible, but how likely is it that the car veered off the road just in time to hit someone who was walking along the shoulder?

    "my point was that he was obviously far enough on the road to where he could be struck by a car. Chances are pretty good the driver didn't even see him until it was too late."

    You do realize that cars can travel off the road, and hit someone walking on the shoulder, right? There's nothing magic that keeps a vehicle on the road. That's not to say that he wasn't walking in the road, but it also seems likely that the driver wasn't paying attention, drifted off the side of the road, and hit him...

    Yes, with the side view mirror. You are not a good thinker.

    "Internet Hate Machine What an ignorant comment to make. That's like saying all white teens kill their rivals."

    What are you talking about? Where did I make an ignorant comment exactly? The only thing that could be construed as ignorant in any of my posts is the part where I quoted jonesmcis1112

  • Proud Wife and Mother Sep 14, 2010

    jonesmcis1112, the investigators might have found some debris(broken head light pieces or something) that came off of the truck at the scene, and through forensics they narrowed down the make and model of the vehicle.
