It wouldn't be Harford County without people wrecking their cars during a mega winter storm (all of 1/2" of slush).

The owner of the bright yellow smashed up truck told police he was, "Run off the road." He actually went airborne from 152 to the bottom of a hill on Stratford Road. I suppose we must believe the serious but stable citizen. As I came home to my nonentriable neighborhood, traffic was quite light on Mountain Road. Plus, the color of the truck, bright taxicab yellow, sure allowed for easy viewing. If someone had been coming out of Woodcrest, was sitting and waiting for entrance onto 152, they would have been killed as the big yellow truck flew through the air and collided with the passenger side of an innocent bystander.

Actually, the big yellow truck would have rammed the driver side, not the passenger side. We live in America, not Great Britain.

The "big yellow truck" has a driver with a name and a family, so you should probably leave your "ass"upmtions inside your judgmental, and inconsiderately rude little brain of yours!

Question for "K": What does "nonentriable neighborhood" mean?
E December 30, 2012 at 08:53 PM
Didiem, It means they couldn't get into their neighborhood.
RW Willy December 30, 2012 at 09:27 PM
it really means someone can't spell or bother to look up the spelling so they make up words.

Lots of innocent bystanders have names and families. Lots of not so lucky, deceased bystanders have names and families. Lots of parents and children who have met their maker due to intoxicated drivers have names and families. Lucky for the driver of the big bright yellow truck, he's still alive and receiving excellent medical care. As mentioned, if some unknowing individual or family were leaving the neighborhood, waiting patiently to enter 152, and the big bright yellow vehicle slammed into them, they'd be DEAD! Didiem, nonentry.....neighborhood, inability to gain access to an area where folks live. Let me put your worries to rest, yes I saw the accident, yes I spoke with the police, and yes I was forced to sit on the side of the road, unable to gain access to my home. As far as your verbal "ASS"ault Tenshi, calm down and stop the insults. Maybe you can come over to the corner of 152 and Strattford Road and pick up the debris left by the big, bright yellow truck. And while you're at it, fix the landscaping mess. I never once stated any ill will towards anyone. For whatever convoluted reason, you've attempted to alter the nature of my comment. Maybe you like to fly your vehicle through the air.....bullying folks is a BIG no-no.

Ok so we now know that people are more worried about being held up then what really matters is the person ok... "k" should just keep any negative comments to themselves cause we damn sure know if it was one of your family members they would have been more concerned with what really matters "are they ok"? Yes my father is fine thanks for asking n landscape n trash can b picked up but a life can not b replaced!!!!! So let's keep that in mind you jerk!!!!
Ashton December 30, 2012 at 10:16 PM
To all of you assholes and your pea sized brain comments, before you all jump the gun and start talking shit, that man was my father! Put yourself my families shoes! If that were someone you would know I am sure that your outlook would be different! There was a man not paying attention that wS driving head and my father swerved to avoid hitting him which sent him airbourn, hitting a tree, flipping twice and landing on its side when it finally came to a stop! My father saved that mans life and put his own in danger trying to avoid a head on collision!! But yet you all seem to think that was pretty selfish on his part considering your landscaping and entrance to your neighborhood was blocked. I would pray that when this happens to your family memeber that you have a different outlook on it! Don't forget Christmas was 5 days ago and to loose a father let alone a family member or a friend woul hVe been devastating! So you all can stick your comments up your self centered asses an I pray for your sake it never happens to you or anyone you know because I wouldn't wish that on anyone!! Happy new years assholes!!
RW Willy December 30, 2012 at 10:52 PM
I think only 1 poster had a selfish take on the accident. So the "you all" is a bit harsh. Hope your old man has a speedy recovery.
RW Willy December 30, 2012 at 10:54 PM
"...waiting patiently to enter 152..." Now thats funny. I have never seen anyone leaving that development come to a full stop.
Lisa Carson December 31, 2012 at 02:01 AM
Thankfully my brother survived this horrible accident. He doesn't drink so alcohol wasn't a factor and he drives for a living so the little 1/2" of slush wasn't a factor, so if you happened to have gotten the tag number of the car that crossed the line and his big yellow dodge pickup avoided hitting, that would be appreciated. My brother is the type of person that would give his life to avoid hurting another, which is what this accident shows. I'm sorry anyone was inconvenienced with the conjestion caused in their neighborhood or the mess that the accident left behind, but I hope you're compassionate enough to appreciate that no one had to witness a death. The vehicle is totaled and he is severly injured, but alive. To those that called 911 or ran to his aid (including calling my sister-in-law, thank you. Your kindness is appreciated. We don't know who you are, but we are the type of people who pay it forward. (Please know that family and friends read these comments and emotions are running high with worry so mind your manners and have some compassion.)
Rev. Tucker December 31, 2012 at 02:17 AM
Amen Lisa! Well said! I pray you brother is recovering! I don't know how I missed this one! I am also praying for your family as well! and lastly I am praying that people will have more compassion for one another!!!

K First of all nonentriable is not a word in the english language, secondly your entire comment was nothing but negative and full of ill will towards the driver of the big yellow truck, for example your comment and I quote ":I suppose we must believe the serious but stable citizen" which suggest the driver of the big yellow truck is lying about what caused the accident.No one has attempted to alter the nature of your comment, everyone who has read your comments including you knows the nature of your hurtful and hateful comments regarding this accident, in my opinion you are an illiterate hateful asshole who was pissed off because you could not get home fast enough from where ever you were comming from because someone happened to be in a very bad accident, even though this man was someones Father, Brother, Husband, Uncle, and friend but you just spouted your hurtful hateful comments anyway, so K please invite me to your neighborhood to clean up the mess of manicure the landscaping, because I would love to do it with your limp illiterate ass !!! And I will show you the same compassion you showed this man and his family, which in case you don't comprehend is none zero!!
K December 31, 2012 at 03:48 AM
May God or who/what ever you believe or don't believe help each and everyone of you.....that's all I can say and that's without reading any additional comments. A happy new year to one and all.....please drive safely!
WhatIsIt? December 31, 2012 at 04:05 AM
You know what makes me laugh hard? Seeing "people" reply to trolls, typing paragraphs of vindication while their blood pressure increases to the MAX. Calling people assholes surely isn't the best solution. Trolls replying trolls, go figure.
Bruce Munyan December 31, 2012 at 04:45 AM
I assure you sir or madam which ever the case may be, my blood pressure is fine, and I only call them as I see them, as for the troll part, maybe if you knew the man and his family as I do you would have a different opinion, As I have known the man driving that big yellow truck along with his family for 40 years, and I find it very insulting for someone anyone making disparaging remarks toward that person, what it is is called respect or the lack of so in that aspect you get what you give, K gave no respect to that man or his family so he got no respect from me, as far as you are concerned, never mind I have explained myself too much to you, someone who hides behind a pseudonym, I on the other hand hide behind nothing my name is posted at the top of my comment, signed respectfully yours the troll.......

Comments earlier in thread may be the tip of the iceberg of intolerance in this physical community as well as in the online community. Good luck to all of you. For clarity's sake I offer up this Wikipedia definition: In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[3] The noun troll may also refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted." While the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, media attention in recent years has made such labels subjective, with trolling describing intentionally provocative actions and harassment outside of an online context. For example, mass media has used troll to describe "a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families."

And IF your parents didn't do drugs prior to your conception, maybe you wouldn't make assumptions. No one was coming out, no one is dead. Why don't you take your pontifications and bloviations somewhere else?
Take Responsibility! December 31, 2012 at 12:12 PM
A big yellow truck? It was a shortbed Dodge Ram Rumblebee(fugly) certainly not big LOL.
Dick Johnson December 31, 2012 at 01:34 PM
Interesting, people have been calling big Johnson for years and haven't figured it out.
Joseph Applegeiser December 31, 2012 at 06:30 PM
Oooh La-La! posting your name, big stuff there big daddy.
Dadof2 December 31, 2012 at 08:53 PM
So many of you are just awful and should be ashamed... but I'm glad to see that there are many more that are compassionate and respectful (relatively, anyway). Regardless, my prayers for a quick recovery to the driver of the yellow pick-up, and best wishes for his family. Don't put too much stock into the ridiculous hate-spewing comments here. Focus, rather, on your father/brother/friend recovering quickly. Happy New Year... 2013 has got to be better!
