Truckers give child chance of a lifetime

KAHOKA, Mo. – A group of truckers made Saturday a very special day for one young Kahoka boy,

Six-year-old Bentlee McGeehon loves semi trucks. He calls them “beep beeps” and always pumps his arm to try and get passing drivers to honk their horns.

Earlier this summer he suffered a stroke and broke his femur, so a group of 38 truckers and their big rigs surprised him at the Clark County fairgrounds.

In addition to getting to watch a 38 truck parade, Bentlee got to take a few laps around the fairground track in his favorite trucks.

John Miller, the trucker who organized the whole thing, said Bentlee smiled ear-to-ear the entire time.
