    I'm sure the dump truck driver looked both ways.
    I've driven the river valley and NWA for a very long time. Dump trucks and 18 wheelers will pull out in front of anyone. They get tired of waiting and the gridlock is pathetic. I very good friend of mine was killed by a dump truck running him off the road while driving his motorcycle to work.
    Now living in north central Arkansas I'm seeing the same careless driving and attitude by dump trucks and flat bed towing vehicles.
