Yes it did, apparently the guy was drunk or on something. Passing car driver saw him wondering in the middle of the road before the truck got him

Thankfully I bet there's only a handful of people within a 10 mile radius of where I live that would be able to start mine.

I'm looking at the man in the mirror.

My riding buddy had one of his motorcycles stolen. It didn't even have the carb on it and it was chained and in his car port.
