I'm closely connected to a trucking company that was involved in a tragic and fatal accident today. A drivers brief negligence took the life of a person and caused serious harm to 4 other people, including an infant.
First, pray for the family that lost their loved one today, pray for their recovery and help them to find peace. Second, pray for the driver of the truck. He will wake up every day living with the fact that he took someone's life and harmed 4 others.
He took his eyes off the road for a split second and crossed the yellow line. It truly was an accident but still something he will carry with him forever. And last, please pray for the trucking company.
While it is their responsibility to pay for damages beyond what the insurance will pay they don't have very deep pockets. It's a small family owned local company with only a few old trucks. A major lawsuit will more than likely result in bankruptcy... this could put 10 people out of a job (4 of which are single income families) and 44 years of a family legacy, blood, sweat, and tears could be lost forever.
Pray for everyone involved. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace and clarity. Just... pray.... please
