God was truly smiling on him. If he had stayed in the cab he would not have survived. If I read it correctly the truck that hit the bridge was rear-end by another Class 8 vehicle. Do I understand it correctly?

BTW, I've driven through Morris IL either picking up or dropping off sheep from our farm in Media MI, many years ago. Very friendly folks in Morris.
