2. What route does Don take to return home and what is that route like?
As Don prepares to leave Trinity Pines, he decides to take I-45, also called the Gulf Highway, home instead of Highway 59, which he drove to the conference. The Gulf Highway parallels and then crosses Lake Livingston. As it crosses the lake the road narrows and has no shoulders. The road ends in a bridge that originally spanned the Trinity River, followed by a sharp rise that reduces visibility.
3. What hit Don and what happened to his car?
Just as Don's small Ford Escort reaches the end of the bridge, an eighteen-wheel truck crosses the center line, hitting Don head on and pinning the car against the bridge railing.
