Truck Driver Shot This Morning At Truck Stop In Dallas
Dallas, Texas – On the very day Transportation Nation Network released part I of our new 3-part editorial series “Guns In Trucks” another trucker has been shot.
This time it happened early Monday morning in a southeastern Dallas parking lot. The victim, a truck driver, told police he had just parked his tractor-trailer at Marlow’s Truck Stop in the 21oo block of Silverado Drive, near C.F. Hawn Freeway, and was walking away from his rig when he was approached by a man. The man asked the victim what he was doing, according to police.
The gunman then brandished a silver handgun and shot the victim in the arm Dallas police spokeswoman Tamika Dameron said. The gunman fled the scene and is still at-large. The victim was transported to a nearby by hospital and was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
This investigation is ongoing and we will bring you the latest information as it becomes available.
Recent events are stirring up debate on whether truckers should even be allowed to carry a gun inside a commercial motor vehicle. Transportation Nation Network is taking a look at this important issue.
