In this video (which can be seen on Facebook even if you aren't logged in), the driver of a KLLM truck attempted to make a left-turning U-turn from the left lane around a car pulled over on the paved median.
However, the trucker forgot about the turning radius of his/her trailer and ended up crunching the stationary car!
We don't know how much professional truck driving experience this trucker had, but for full disclosure, when Vicki was in truck driver training school -- and as we reported on our CDL road test page -- she nearly hit a telephone pole because she hadn't yet gotten used to the length of the trailer behind the tractor.
When you are driving a big rig, remember that you're hauling a trailer (or trailers) behind you. The length of the towed unit(s) behind you matter when you're making turns.
Had the KLLM driver been watching his/her driver side mirror -- and pulled up far enough to make the U-turn -- he/she would not have caused this totally preventable accident.

Citing "a blog post by folks at the Bureau of Labor Statistics within the U.S. Department of Labor," an August 18, 2016 article stated, "One out of every six Americans killed on the job is a truck driver".
For truckers with families back home who rely solely upon the trucker's income, the trucker's death will be doubly hard to handle. Not only is the driver gone, but so is his/her paycheck.
What would your family do if you were killed on the job?
It is a great idea for truckers to build a second income -- that provides residual income -- to help offset (or perhaps replace) a trucker's trucking income.
