    I am sorry for both drivers but bottom line is making a U-turn in a stretch is just a really dumb idea. I drive a stretch and would rather go out of my way vs making a U-turn. And the driver of the pick up is just at fault and he should have been paying attention to what was going on in front of him. If he was drunk then even more so. Just my opinion.
