An unstoppable force meets an immovable object. This phrase is often used in situations in which there are two strong forces in nature, colliding in some way. While it is often used facetiously in conversations about sports and other trivial matters, it can also be applied to more serious subjects, such as motor vehicle accidents. When large vehicles, such as trucks and buses, are involved in accidents on public roads, the consequences can be catastrophic. Physical injuries are very common. In the worst of circumstances, people can be killed. Whether by someone’s negligent driving or forces out of their control, people are harmed every year in these kinds of accidents all across America.
On the night of Monday, December 8, 2014, 53-year-old Tim McManus was driving an empty school bus. He was driving down New Town Road in Union County, North Carolina when he began rounding a curve. At that moment, a garbage truck owned by the Mercados Construction Clean Up Company was heading in the opposite direction. For some unknown reason, the garbage truck driver failed to stay on the right side of the yellow line. This mistake proved to be a tragic one. Mr. McManus’s school bus collided head-on with the garbage truck. Although he was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, Mr. McManus was ejected through the windshield of the bus. He was later found dead on the side of the road.
When first responders arrived on the scene, they discovered the garbage truck driver in his cab with only minor injuries. Out of precaution, he was brought by ambulance to the nearby Carolina’s Medical Center. North Carolina State Troopers have withheld the name of the driver until formal charges are brought against him. The charges will include reckless driving and vehicular manslaughter.
Mr. McManus is survived by his wife and 10-year-old daughter, Madison.
