Close call for semi truck driver in Michigan snow storm on 1/29/19

M-6 is also known as the Paul B. Henry Highway. It skirts around Grand Rapids so folks can avoid I-196 downtown & US-131 which is a nightmare.

1. Been on that road a lot this year.

Great way to miss those big curve, traffic and construction on 131.

2. Looks to me that the car passing the truck

was driving way too fast--not accommodating at all for the conditions.

Am I fair in calling that driver an idiot?

The trucker, on the other hand, seemed amazingly cool. I would have been screaming my head off during a near-crash like that.

4. Don't know. The driver may also have been trying to avoid going into the back of the truck that was

stopped.

7. Didn't see any flashers or brake lights that tractor. Both drivers did a good job getting around him

6. Agreed. That idiot driving the car is lucky s/he didn't end up in the middle of the median.
