    Re: Truck Driver Kills Delivery Cyclist on Fort Hamilton Pkwy, Flees Scene

    This guy was the driver of a truck, but not necessarily a truck driver. I wonder if this person had much if any experience behind the wheel of a truck. It’s scary that anybody with a license can rent a full size truck and hit the streets. No experience or training required.
