Tractor Hit From Behind by Truck

Postby T-Mo » Sun Mar 22, 2020 8:03 am

This was posted on FB, so I'm not sure if you can see it or not. But here is a video of a tractor ride that got interrupted by a drunk driver in a truck. The truck hit the tractor from behind and a girl fell off the tractor. She appears to be okay. Be safe out there. The video for some reason is backwards, i.e. steering wheel is on the right,not the left and they're driving what appears in the video the wrong lane. But, if you'll notice, the F150 is backwards and the writing on the tractor is backwards also. I'm not sure how the video got backwards, but you can still tell what's happening.

My cousin got killed after being hit from behind on a tractor about 15 years ago. He was on a John Deere 40.

Wow, what an impatient idiot! At the same time, they were impeding traffic. Doesn't make it okay to ram the tractor. That fella's day would have ended with significant injuries if I had been involved in or even seen this happen. That wouldn't be right either, but that's likely how it would have went.

I did some searching. The story gets even more bizarre. Apparently the tractor was pulling a "wine wagon" and is a common sight on the area roads. The guy who rammed them is a friend of the tractor driver and apparently thought it would be funny if he acted like he was mad and bumped the back of the wagon. He had a blood alcohol level of .21%. He was sentenced to 5 years felony probation.
