Trucker stunt man has role in new movie

| 3/16/2007

A movie that opens in theaters across the country Friday features a key stunt performed by Mike Ryan, the Hollywood stunt driver who also races Class 8 trucks up Pike's Peak.

In the film "Premonition," Ryan jackknifes a fuel tanker, killing the husband of Sandra Bullock's character - or at least seeming to.

Ryan has had stunt roles in numerous films, including "Training Day" and "Terminator 2."

Ryan is an active board member of Trucker Buddy, a non-profit organization where students become pen pals with professional truck drivers.?
