The Associated Press FULTON, Mo. An errant semi-trailer crushed Jay Durham's motorcycle and mangled his body, but it hasn't broken his spirit, i Durham lost a leg and nearly lost his life in April 1992 when he was hit from behind as he was riding one of his Harleys on Interstate 40 near Russellville, Ark. ' Durham, 48, believes he was hit deliberately by a trucker who then made no attempt to help the fallen motorcyclist. Durham says he remained conscious despite passing under the semi's wheels and saw the trucker stop only to pry Durham's motorcycle from his grill- "He just ran smooth over the top of me," Durham said. "He pushed my motorcycle 1,880 feet according to one report. I shouldn't be alive." Durham now mixes a gee-whiz feeling at still being alive with his anger over the event He's made a crusade of trying to find the trucker, distributing thousands of fliers offering $10,000 rewards at truck stops across the country. "I'd sure hate to know I didn't even try and stop this guy," Durham said. "Somebody like this doesn't need to be out on the highway." Police in Russellville could not be reached for comment about the case Saturday. A telephone mes sage left with the detectives' division was not returned. Durham spoke in a telephone interview Friday from his neighbor's house. He no longer has a phone. The accident put Durham in a wheelchair and dependent on disability payments. Durham's right leg was amputated, and he only recently had metal rods and screws removed from his left leg. The pain all over his body was so severe he became addicted to painkillers. "I was up to 31 pills a day," Durham said. He said his girlfriend, Cindy Levart, helped him stop taking the drugs. Last week, Durham's story was to be featured on NBC's Unsolved Mysteries. He was hoping the show might help find the driver. mjr 11 rtvfV CHRISTMAS WORLD Entire Stock WOELD OFFS Reg. Price Some Exterior & Display Items Not Included 8528 LINE AVE.
