I guess you cannot ever imagine that some stories can be written with straight english noting that a delivery truck is in fact controlled by a driver.

You should note my post made no claims of who was at fault. Even if the driver of the truck hits the cyclist, there may be fault with the cyclist, but you just want to deride other posters without any real basis.
Savor this small, pointless and hollow validation, because it surely will happen again that someone will say "_________ was struck by a delivery van" and fail to point out to readers that the van was in fact (and must have been) operated by a delivery van driver. If that really was all you had then you needed some deriding. I am happy that I could be of service.
