Tough, Independent Texas Trucker - Dead
Houston Chronicle (Date unknown)
Last words of a Texas trucker
He was about to unload his haul of heavy pipes and started to loosen the safety straps, and a guy said, "Better wait for the crane to do that." And the trucker said, “Don’t worry. I’ve got it.” Then a 4-ton pipe rolled off the truck. And he got it.
