My good friend Leo who owns this corrado was on his way to work today when this happend.


A semi-truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and caused the truck to veer off the freeway, hit a large tree and burst into flames on Interstate 205 early Monday morning, authorities said.
The driver of the rig, Jeffrey Hartung, 43, of northeast Portland, was severely injured, according to Karen Eubanks with Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue.
Hartung managed to escape from the semi and a motorist who stopped to help, Leo Tackett IV, found him lying on the ground next to his burning truck.
Leo Tackett, 32, pulled Hartung to safety. The truck was nearly destroyed by the fire.

Re: Local VW owner a Hero (MEISTER)

sounds alot like the trimet bus driver i helped save. he fell asleep at the wheel but only because he had a massive heart attack at the wheel. i was able to bust open the rear door and get on the bus and let others on the bus that were there to help aid with cpr and what not to rivive the driver.
i never did hear what his final condition was just that he was in critical condition all week
at least he was still alive though. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
