A pickup truck driver died Monday morning in rural Sonoma County after the pickup was hit by a big-rig at the intersection of state Highways 37 and 121, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP’s Marin office began receiving reports just after 6 a.m. of the collision, which resulted in major damage to the pickup truck and a collision with the cement center divide to the west of the two highways’ intersection.


Officers with the Marin CHP, Lakeville Volunteer Fire Department and the Schell-Vista Fire Protection District closed westbound Highway 37 once they arrived and rendered medical aid to the pickup truck driver, who died at the scene.

The CHP’s preliminary investigation found that the big-rig was traveling west on Highway 37 toward the Highway 121 intersection and failed to notice a red Toyota Tacoma pickup truck and a Subaru Outback were

Covington man killed after truck strikes his bicycle

An investigation was continuing today into the death of a bicyclist last week after a pickup truck struck him as he rode on Washington Street in southwest Covington.

Elliott Johnson, 57, of Piper Road in Covington, was killed after a 2005 Ford truck struck his bicycle Thursday, Aug. 6, at about 11 p.m. as both traveled north on Washington Street near Flat Shoals Road. 

A Georgia State Patrol report stated the victim was riding on the right side of the northbound lane of Washington Street approaching Flat Shoals when the front of the truck struck the bicycle’s rear. 

The driver of the truck, Timothy Grant Millwood, 49, of Eatonton, told investigators “there was an oncoming car with headlights temporarily obscuring his view, and he did not see the bicyclist until it was too late and struck him with the front right side of his vehicle,” the report stated.

Truck | vehicle | Britannica

Truck, also called lorry, any motor vehicle designed to carry freight or goods or to perform special services such as fire fighting. The truck was derived from horse-driven wagon technology, and some of the pioneer manufacturers came from the wagon business. Because of a well-developed system of roads and highways in North America and Europe, trucks have come to carry most intercity freight, with the exception of bulk materials such as ores, which are typically still carried by ship and rail, and time-critical deliveries, which are usually carried between cities by air. Trucks enjoy an almost total monopoly in intracity freight delivery because of their ability to deliver goods directly to recipients.

In 1896 Gottlieb Daimler of Germany built the first motor truck. It was equipped with a four-horsepower engine and

“Here in Bethlehem, we have been supplying Oxygen to the hospitals in New York City and New Jersey. All of our drivers have stepped up their game and have gone above and beyond without question.

Two drivers, in particular, have shared stories with me that made them feel something they never felt before.”

1️⃣ Tim Barnes was delivering in New York City and the fire department was clearing a call. When they noticed our truck coming down the street, they stood together and clapped and gave our driver a thumbs up because they knew he was delivering Oxygen to the hospitals.

Tim said, “As I drive by the firehouse, I look at them as heroes and when they cheered as I drove by, I felt like I was the hero. I was honored to have them do that. It made me feel
