An 18-wheeler took a miraculous 65-mph journey Thursday.
The driver of an 18-wheeler filled with auto parts lost consciousness while traveling approximately 65 mph around 8:25 a.m. Thursday. The truck careened across a street, a ravine, two parking lots and into a Temple hotel without causing any life-threatening injuries to people, according to a Temple Police news release.
“We all agree, it was a miracle someone wasn’t hurt or killed with all the distance and speed that was traveled,” Temple Police spokesman Sgt. Brad Hunt said.
Temple first responders were called to what was being reported as an explosion and fire at the Residence Inn Marriot along South General Bruce Drive. They arrived to find no fire or explosion, but an 18-wheeler had crashed into the hotel, a news release stated.
The crash severely damaged rooms on the first and second floors where the truck went as much as 30-feet deep into them. The hotel was evacuated and a search took place to locate the customers in occupied rooms.
The truck’s driver, Gustavo Rodriguez, 50, of Eagle Pass was freed from the truck at 10:10 a.m. He was taken to Scott & White Hospital. He remained there through the evening being treated for injuries to the upper body, head and legs, the release stated.
One female guest was taken to Scott & White with lacerations to her legs after being near a room struck by the trailer. Two other guests staying in a damaged room were eating breakfast when the crash happened. Another guest in a second-floor room was not in the room during the crash.
The news release stated the truck will remain jammed in the building until City of Temple construction crews can stabilize the building, which suffered damage to three structural support walls. Hunt said that is expected to take at least 24 hours.
The accident happened when the truck driver, headed northbound on Interstate 35 in Temple in a 65-mph speed zone, succumbed to sleepiness or a medical condition. The truck drove off I-35 down a sloped, grass median and crossed the service road of South General Bruce Drive. The truck then drove through the parking lot of Outdoor American Mall without hitting anyone. The truck continued up a sloped embankment approximately 10 feet in the air where it leapt off the ground flying 100 feet over a retaining pond, landscaping and into the hotel.
A friend took a friend’s car to drive. And he began to show that he knows how to drive perfectly.

A motorist crashed onto a church roof in eastern Germany overnight, after missing a bend in a road, breaking through a barrier and hurtling up a bank.
The bank acted like a springboard, propelling the black Skoda about 35 metres forward and straight into the church’s roof frame, where it remained wedged 7 metres off the ground, police said.
“We’ve never ever had a case of a car landing in a church before,” Chemnitz police spokesman Frank Fischer said.
The 23-year-old driver suffered serious injuries.
The damage to the car, which was extracted from the roof by a crane, amounts to about 10,000 euros ($19,891), police said.
The cost of damage to the church has not yet been estimated.
Police said speed was a possible cause for the accident.

If you stay in Paris, and you can actually afford your repayment, you might want to drive your car to Germany during any celebration. 1,147 cars met their end on 2009′s new year’s eve.
It is common for French to torch their other people’s cars on fire as a form of protest to (whatever shit they’re in) show their anger. In fact, there are statistics where authorities monitor, and for 31st of Dec 08, there’s an increase of 30.64% up from 31 Dec 07′s 878 cars.
The staggering thing however, is that throughout 2007, there are more than 43,000 cars set alight, and as an average, each day there are about 100 owners who suddenly find that they might not be able to send their wife to hospital, or that they might just missed the interview for a job they dearly needed.
Cars in a modern society, are as if an individual’s legs. And each person’s daily schedules and routines are planned in a way that the time to travel from one place to another was factor in; burning other people’s cars as a form of protest will create very serious impact on a person’s life. Moreover, cars are oftenly the second most expensive purchase asset of a person, taking years for repayment.
And we all know insurance companies would try and explain that the fire caused was not due natural disaster, and the ones they bought are ……. all that bullshit.
