POLICE: Trucker making a wide turn probably didn’t know he hit a person sitting in the median


A man sitting on a highway median was struck and killed by a turning semi truck in Texas late Thursday night.

According to News 4 San Antonio, a semi truck made a wide turn on the I-10 East feeder road near Thompson Road, causing them to drive over a grassy median. Unfortunately, a man was sitting of laying in the median at the time the turck made the turn, and was consequently run over by the big rig.
