No surprise here..... Haldeman Ford ALWAYS parks their biggest trucks and SUV's at the corner of their building, COMPLETELY obstructing the view of oncoming traffic. The intersection is at a slight curve and with the vehicle obstructing the view , this poor soul never stood a chance. He could not have seen the oncoming cement truck until it was too late and he was well into the intersection. Point in reference, they still have a huge SUV with a snowplow sitting there in the corner today, still at the corner of the building even after this horrific and tragic and possibly avoidable accident. Wondering why this is legal to obstruct the view of a very fast moving and dangerous intersection
