Tarping trucker struck by motorist with sun in their eyes


A truck driver was injured by a motorist who claims they had the sun in their eyes. 

The accident happened on Thursday, April 22nd in Mansfield, Massachusetts. 

According to The Sun Chronicle, a truck driver was adjusting a tarp on his trailer while parked and waiting to enter a nearby trucking terminal at 241 Francis Ave. when a woman hit him in her car.
