"God has a plan"

Updated Dec 14, 2009

The February 2008 issue of iOverdrive reported on the problems faced by truckers involved in fatal accidents that were not their fault. That the four-wheeler was to blame, not the trucker, doesn’t spare the professional driver the consequences of a horrific wreck.

Another such wreck seems to have happened April 22 in eastern Howard County, Md., when a Nissan Altima swerved across the center lane and hit a beverage-delivery truck head-on, according to police. Four people in the car, including an infant, were killed.

Outside the hospital, the deeply shaken but only slightly injured truck driver told iThe Washington Post: “>I’ve been through a lot in life, and I believe even now, in a situation like this, God has a plan.”
