Do you ever get in a hurry? Do you ever find yourself running a little bit behind and trying to hurry past others while you are driving? I think that might have been the case in this situation. You can take a good look at this picture but I don't think you will be able to guess why this semi is not completing his turn through the intersection. I was amazed to find a car halfway under the semi's rear passenger side tire and the truck bed. I could not see the car until I drove through the intersection and was on the other side of the semi. I would imagine the driver of the car was scared to say the least. I would caution everyone not to pull up along the right side of a semi when he has his turn signal want to make a right hand turn. You will be asking for trouble.
