    Truck driver stopped, exited his truck and stepped into the path of a Fielder Wagon ?
    Maybe, he just forgot to look for oncoming traffic. At the same time, the driver of that Fielder Wagon
    should have stopped and render assistance to the injured. Fleeing from an involved accident scene is not
    what any responsible driver should do. Perhaps, he just couldn’t stop in time to avoid this accident. The fact
    that a vehicle has stopped ahead of you, precautions should have been taken to slow down and approach
    the passing cautiously but, everybody seems in a hurry to go somewhere.
