During February and March of 2017, we asked truck drivers to share their wildest stories from their time on the road. Now, it's been my experience that just about every trucker has a few great stories up their sleeve, and when we asked, they delivered!
We received entries from Minnesota to Florida and Canada. Some trucker stories were spooky, dangerous, or funny. Some stories were long and others where short, but each and every one of them was wild. And the winning story is ...
