I am actually kinda curious to see if anyone will say they killed a person on accident.

^ I guess, but I am guessing the only people saying they killed people on purpose are soldiers or perhaps in self defence. And the vast majority are going to be saying no.

It'd be somewhat interesting to see some outliers is all.

Even as a rifle owner, I hope I never have to.

Nope! never killed anyone in my life. I remember seeing a program about some local juvenile prison, but I doubt most people here have ever been jailed at such a young age for homicide and such.

No. Although for some reason killing someone on accident seems like it would be something like this:

Man 1: *cutting vegetables*
Man 2:Hey!
Man 1:*turns around quickly* Oh hey... *accidentally sliced Man 2 really deep*
Man 2: *glub glub*

More likely a traffic accident.

I've seen people die, but never due to my actions

Man I feel somewhat odd being only one of two people who chose yes. Surely I can't be the only combat veteran here?

Came real close to killing 4 people in traffic a few decades ago on I-20 in the C-F known as Dallas-Ft Worth Metroplex. I had on 80K of computer paper on large rolls tied down inside a 53' trailer enroute to Oakland, Calif. just in time for Christmas delivery or set out. It's the usual story of some buffoon in a small compact car with wife up front and both kids stuck in the back seat changing lanes with no fear of the consequences that lay before his decisions. Everyone was rolling along in rush hour about 45 mph. This yahoo cut in front of me then slowed to crawl behind a car 1 lane over as he started to plan a 4-lane change to his about to be missed exit ramp. I had no choice but to apply the air brakes full bore. I was slowing but the 40 more feet I needed to stop was occupied by this jack hole.

I'll never forget the look on the faces of those 2 kids seating in the back seat as they were watching that big, big, getting bigger by the second red 3-axle Freightliner bear down on them. As far as I was concerned they were gonna die very, very soon and there wasn't a damn thing I could do to prevent it. I was surrounded by 4-wheeler traffic in all lanes. Fate reared its head and Someone prevailed as the little car slid into the next lane just in the nick of time cutting off yet another driver trying to go home. Phew.

I was shot at during the trucker strike back in the late '70's somewhere near Pagosa Springs, Colorado when descending Wolf Creek Pass. I saw the guy down at the bottom of the hill just as I topped the grade going westbound. When I got down near grade end I could make out some kid with a rifle. Since I didn't get hit I didn't stop until Pagosa Springs. Once there I got out, did a cursory glance around the rig and found 2 dents in the sleeper section of my cab about 12" from where I was seated that were not there when my trip started that morning. Bastard......a w sum bitch

Almost killed a motorcyclist with the 40' trailer I was pulling back in 1974. Those single-wheel tandem 40' trailers were designed to haul cars or mattress foam. They were not designed for HHG per se. Mayflower had a small fleet of these and I got assigned 1 when I traded my gas straight truck in for a 3-axle Kenworth semi-tractor. The 1 other design flaw was the use of split rims to hold the trailer tires on the steel trailer wheels. Anyway I was motoring along outside of Salt Lake City in 6-lanes of traffic to my next pick up point when I heard a noise, looked out at my driver side rear mirror and saw rubber fly every which way at the back area of the trailer. Crap, damn ruined tire. Before I could stop the damage generated by the first tire took out the trailing tire resulting in 1 side of the trailer without rubber to support it. As I was in process of slowing down to a stop I happened to notice a guy on a motorcycle gliding by 2 lanes over whose face was as white as a bed sheet. Didn't think about it further until tire guy appeared. Initially, we couldn't find the split rims anywhere on the same side of the Interstate as my broke down rig. Further inspection and search revealed they had shot themselves at great velocity across 5 lanes of traffic before hitting a median guard rail and coming to a sudden stop. Ponder the imponderables....

Had those split rims hit that cyclist 2 lanes over not only would they have killed him but at the velocity they were traveling the steel would have either decapitated the man or cut him in half. God, I still think about that to this day.

Had a motorist run into the back of my 43.5' Kentucky trailer 1 night at speed. The only events that saved this couple were their inebriated state at impact and the size vehicle they were in. He had a broken arm, she got lacerations. EMTs had to use jaws of life to rescue / extract 2 from their totaled station wagon. I got a preventable accident charge on my driving record for that incident.

Nothing else spectacular....overheated brake shoes descending a mountain pass in Oregon 1 time back in 1989 with a company rig. Last mile was accomplished in excess of 120 mph on the way down hauling 80K weight. Luckily no traffic around me and no Oregon State Patrolman at the bottom which was the norm.

Steering tire blew out in high desert California 1 day on I-40. Luckily I happened to be de-celerating off on ramp when that occurred.

Come to think of it I am surprised I've lasted this long.

I remember a Chief Warrant Officer my company had. Tough son of a bitch who joined up at 18 and retired at 55. He lived through 26 combat tours and you could play one hell of a wicked game of connect the dots using the guy's scars.

Specifically I remember what he said once, That once Death chews and spits outs a man a couple of times he ain't interested anymore. Considering the amount of damage those scars represented I was inclined to take his word as gospel.
