Sierra 1500 8-cyl

  • 17,300 miles
I am a heavy highway construction inspector for wvdoh and while working on I 81 sb in martinsburg, wv this morning around 2:00 am while performing my duties I attempted to pull out of my lane closure into traffic when my truck literally got stuck halfway out into live traffic. It was as if I was stomping on the brakes instead of giving it gas. Fortunately I reacted swiftly and put the truck in reverse to back into my lane closure preventing a collision with a tractor trailer traveling at speeds in excess of 55 mph. I was literally shaking when I realized how close of a call it actually was and that not only could I or the truck driver have been killed, but so could the workers on my job have been injured and/or killed. I had to have my truck towed back to my field office. For some reason the truck started driving properly again. There is definitely something wrong and it is extremely fortunate that no injuries occurred on my project. I did notice a post on this website explaining the very thing that happened to me this morning. This issue must be addressed immediately before people are killed.
