Wow ... sounds like everyone is lucky to be alive in that one.
I hate it when truck drivers just decide that the rules don't apply to them. I was driving home two nights ago on a road that is three lanes on each side ... the traffic was moderate. A truck was in the left-most traffic lane (not the turn lane). When the light changed, it pulled out into the intersection and stopped until there was a break in the traffic on the other side, then went to go and do a U-turn. But it didn't have enough room on the other side, so now it is trying to back up with traffic driving on both sides (there was no green arrow). And all the guy had to do was go one more stop light and he would have been at the interstate where he could have driven one mile in either direction and gotten back on the road (the interstate parallels this road) ... but instead, he puts everyone at risk by doing a U-turn.
