OK. A picture for those non-believers!
The REG tells the story of the chap who hitch-hiked onto a Truck AND LIVED
The hitchhiker, whose wheelchair got sucked into the grill of the truck, survived because he WAS WEARING HIS chair's SEATBELT!!!! (otherwise he would have been run-over by the truck!)
Ben Carpenter (the lucky hitchhiker) told police that, "it was quite a ride", but complained only that he had spilled his soda.
"I was probably thinking that he [the driver] is going to keep going, not stop anywhere, go 50-60 miles somewhere".
"I mean I would have been dead way before that," he added."
