Kahuna:As expected your response brightened my day. Perhaps I was not clear in my original post. Let me try again.My mother was STOPPED behind one truck and beside another. All three, and several other vehicles as well in front of them, were stopped at a railroad crossing waiting for a passing train to finish using the tracks. My mothers car just happened to be the last in line. The asphalt truck in question did not stop, the driver instead choose to jump from the cab. The asphalt truck collided with my mother's van from behind and (and I use this term literally) crushed it against the truck in front of her, killing her, we pray, instantly. While asphalt trucks may not need to stop at railroad crossings it seems that it would have at least been recommended in this case.While you most likely did not understand the nature of the incident from my earlier post, or perhaps my second or third, I trust that it makes more sense now. Thanks for letting me know your daughter is booked I can cross here off my list now.
