Tuesday I drove the dump truck for Dad. I was on Sorghum Mill Road headed west, when I came over the top of a hill. And there was a large mulch truck sitting in my lane, facing me!!!!! I was going about 50 mph. I put in the clutch and jammed on the brakes!!! The back of the truck started sliding to the left!!! It was not responding what-so-ever!!! All I could see was the grill of that truck rushing at me!! I let out the clutch trying anything to get it to slow down. Well that caused it to lurch and go from sliding to left to turning left and shooting across the road into the ditch!!!! I was okay and the truck also came out okay!!!!
