    I struggle with the word "nearly" in that.... "nearly killed" maybe, but it certainly looked "definitely run over", that wheel certainly appeared to cross his body.

    That is not a “near miss”
    That is a direct hit!

    I drove mixers for 16 years and I HATED big commercial jobs . There were just too many people wandering around with their heads up their butts not paying attention to anything going on around them. It amazes me that there aren't more of them KIA on the job.


    By the way where that "pedestrian" was standing is a major blind spot for big trucks, probably why he got hit in the first place not to mention it looked like the driver started to back up over him too. Not sure which one of those guys would have needed to change their britches the worst.

    If that guy were a cat, I'd say there went eight of his nine lives!

    I can't figure out of the driver is walking up to him to see if he is alright or getting ready to stomp a mudhole in his butt for Being there in the first place
