There was a bad wind storm on the 28th and 29th of March on much of the prairies. On the 28th, the high winds caused grass fires to spread like wildfire in Alberta and some evacuations were required. Later on the 28th, it began to snow, which helped put out the grass fires.

The wind storm blew into Saskatchewan on the 29th where my nephew teaches in a small town. He lives about an hour away from the town. He made it to Moose Jaw, but the roads were quite bad, mainly the drifting snow had caused visibility to be next to nil. Riley was talking to my brother about maybe getting a room for the night. He turned onto Highway 1, the Trans Canada highway. Traffic was stopped before his exit. He looked in his mirror, a semi was bearing down on him.

He woke up a few minutes later. It certainly appears that he is lucky to be alive.

He was taken to hospital where he had a bad contusion on the back of his head and his low back was very sore. They detected some bleeding in his brain, but no significant swelling. They monitored and did a cat scan this afternoon and his brain is normal. He hurts all over though. He is getting married on August 1. It's great he was not hurt more than he was.

Cars are replaceable, my nephew isn't.

We saw billboards on the way to NC for "The Hammer" big truck injury attorney. He looked more like a pro wrassler than an attorney. Here's to his recovery.

I had a Semi take me out intentionally to avoid an even bigger disaster with another Semi.
He picked my 1 ton up and put it on 2 wheels.
I was not injured Thank God and my Guardian Angle
The guy that created the situation even stopped and told the Highway Patrol that it was his fault and he took full responsibility.
Mercury my insurance company was the problem.
They tried everything in their power to claim that the accident never happened and tried to get me for Insurance Fraud.
it took me over 9 months to get my truck back that should have been Totaled 36K damage on a 40K truck 6 months old.

Glad to hear he was not beat up real bad.
Hope he recovers quickly

If you want the very best. Hire Frank Branson in Dallas. Frank Branson Law Firm. Jim Adler is a gross novice in comparison.

Thanks for sharing this with us, I appreciate you doing so.

It's both a miracle and a testament to modern car design that he's as okay as he is. That remaining lift of sheet rock could have crushed the front passenger compartment of the car by the look of it.

Please know he and you all in the family and his friends will be in my thoughts and prayers for sure.

Hoping for the best for all involved,

Last fall one very foggy morning, An intersection, Me, and a Semi driver that didn't know there was an intersection there,

I could have touched the truck has it went by at 60, I was sitting at the light.

still gives me the shakes.

Semi accidents are no joke.

Thanks for the concern and the prayers every one. Riley will be released tomorrow?

God must have plans for him. I would have thought he would be much more injured than he is.
