Driver loses vital organ at Kentucky hospital

| August 24, 2011

Trucker Philip Seaton is locked in a battle with a Kentucky doctor whom it appears may be attempting to cover his tracks after amputating Seaton’s penis after finding cancer during a routine circumcision-type procedure to relieve inflammation — doing so without, apparently, telling Seaton he was doing it.

That’s all I’ll say, aside from that folks all around the web are having too much fun with this one — it ultimately seems more gruesome than all that, and a sad tale. Here’s hoping the truth will out. More on the story here and here.

I’m headed out to Dallas and the Great American Trucking Show within an hour; keep an eye on this blog and my Twitter feed for news and goings-on there.
