Taking Responsibility

Last week a parcel delivery truck raced down our street, a very short street with three houses on each side.  I remembered it from every other night because the truck was traveling so fast, and right in front of my house, there was a loud bang as he passed.  I looked out to see if the truck had hit something, but I saw nothing and the truck continued down the street as if nothing happened.

The next morning my neighbor met me at the end of my driveway in tears.  He informed me that last night a parcel truck struck and killed his dog, right in front of him while he was outside playing with the dog.  The truck never stopped or acknowledged hitting anything.  The dog was known and favored by all of our neighbors, and the family is devastated.

Later that day a parcel truck delivered a package to my house.  As the driver exited his truck, I met him in the driveway.  I asked him if he was the same driver from the previous night, and he indicated he was.  I asked him if anything unusual occurred as he passed my house the previous night, and he indicated nothing unusual.

I told him as he passed my house the night before, there was a loud bang, loud enough that I heard it as did my other neighbor who was in his house.  He then acknowledged that he remembered hearing something, but thought that a package had fallen in the back of his truck.

I informed him that the loud sound he had heard was his truck striking and killing my neighbor’s dog.

A week has gone by, and the same driver has been delivering packages to our neighborhood since I spoke with him.  While not necessarily his fault that the dog was killed by his truck, one would think he would be gracious enough to either stop at their house and talk with them, or send them a note or something acknowledging what happened and their loss.


Worse, his racing down our street has not stopped.  One would have thought after learning that he struck and killed a dog that he should slow down, especially since there are small children playing in our neighborhood, but that hasn’t resignated with him either.

    I don’t understand why the company of the parcel deliverer wasn’t contacted about reckless driving and why it’s being tolerated.

    • Steve Pedneault says:

      Myself, my wife and my neighbor all asked the dog’s owners if we could intervene on their behalf due to their grieving, and they asked us not to contact the parcel company. To further complicate things, it turns out our state is a leash law state. If a dog is off a leash and gets hit by a car, for example, the dog’s owner is responsible for any damage to the vehicle. The driver knows what he did, as I told him the next day. I suspect my neighbors, just having their dog hit in front of them, simply want to recover with as little potential conflict with the parcel company as possible. In the meantime I am watching, and as soon as I see him drive fast again, I will call and complain, as there are small kids in my neighborhood as well.
