Upon impact, the pick-up truck spun around numerous times, resulting in being hit by the tractor trailer twice before stopping. The pick-up was totaled; the driver was knocked unconscious. He sustained a fractured rib and severe pain between his shoulder blades, and was diagnosed with an injury to facet joints and trauma to the spinal nerves. Most likely the results of being unconscious, he also suffered headaches and cognitive problems, including problems with speech, memory, and concentration. Due to the extent of his injuries and disabilities, the man cannot resume work as a union carpenter and general contractor.
