what was robert doing that caused him to cross the line and hit that guy?

If you will read the article Robert did not cross the line and hit the other guy it was the other way around. Sounds to me like you are trying to start something.

Don was a special man to many. He was the bus driver for my son and a very sweet man. He transported little kids back and forth from Walnut Ridge to Pocahontas everyday. It is said that Don may have had a heart attack prior to the accident, you never know what tomorrow holds....praying for the family's involved. God has another angel up in heaven. Funeral services are tonight at House-Greg

i am the one that was in that wreck and i thank you kindly that i DID NOT cross the center line. read the news report or if that dont convince you go to the wreck sight and LOOK for yourself where they marked where our tires rested after the crash. i did everything humanly possible to miss that man. i was damn near in the ditch and HIS car was completely in MY lane. how the hell did i cross the center line? do you think i am living a great life knowing this man lost his life and i am alive!!! like the previous said what are you trying to start?!? i had been off of work for 7 minutes. SEVEN MINUTES!!! my boss and his son where about 2 minutes behind me. i was on my way to a doctors appointment. i dont know what your trying to prove by asking what i did wrong. i went to this mans visitation and talked to his wife. yes they do believe that he passed right before the crash. so do not be placing any kind of blame on me here. just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
