A TikTok creator known as the @pissed_off_trucker tragically died.
The 52-year-old content creator was a semi-truck driver famously known for making TikTok from his big rig driver’s seat.
Steven Hull Raley was his name and he was a proud father.
Rest In Peace
The truck driver was very funny on his account often making duet videos, giving life lessons and spreading knowledge about road safety.
Raley passed away earlier this month after his big rig ran off the road just hours after he expressed his desire to get home.
In what is now his final TikTok video, Raley said, “All I care about is getting home on home time. That’s what I care about more than anything else.”

He continued to explain how he didn’t give a s**t if he was on the “For You Page.”
“If I am, great. And if I’m not that’s great too, who cares? But, I appreciate all you guys on TikTok, I do. Y’all are good people. But, if I’m not on your ‘FYP’ I don’t care. Just get me home G** D***it,” he said.
At the time his final TikTok was made, he was in Kansas trucking along Interstate 70 (I-70).
In another video posted before his death, Raley expressed what a “proud Papa” he was and how excited he was for his son’s upcoming wedding.
Steven Hull Raley Was A Proud Father-Of-Four
Raley had two daughters with his current wife, and a son and a daughter from a previous marriage.
His son Matthew, aka. “Meat,” was from his first marriage and is set to get married in October.
“Yeah that last video I talked about my son getting married, I gotta share this with you. That’s my boy Matthew and that’s Taylor, pretty little thang. I’m so proud of them I can’t stand it,” he gushed about his son. “Ahhh, love the two of them so much, sure do. But yeah, come October, my little baby boy is gonna be married. I’m so proud I can’t stand it, sure am.”
Raley continued to express his pride for how his son has navigate life and rise above adversity.
“But, he has turned into quite the young man with all the adversity we’ve gone through in our lives, all the adversity he’s gone through in his life, he’s turned out to be a square, straight up human, good man, good man he is. Proud of him,” Raley explained. “Proud Papa. Vote for my kids, all four of ‘em actually. Very happy. Or five of em now.”
His fifth child would’ve been Taylor, Matthew’s future wife, because he looked at her as if she was his own.
According to The Kansas City Star via the Kansas Highway Patrol, Raley was about 16 miles west of Colby, KS. when his semi-truck veered off the highway and through a fence. His truck continued for another quarter-mile before crashing back through the fence and crossed both sides of the interstate, finally crashing into a ditch.
He was taken to Citizens Medical Center and pronounced dead, per reports.
Raley captivated quite an audience on TikTok. He had over 200k followers on the platform before his passing, and 2.8M likes.
Many of his fans commented on the final video with sorrow.
“Can another trucker please do a proper send off for this amazing man. Your home with our Heavenly Father now brother. You will be truly missed 💕,” one person wrote.
“Oh trucker 😭😭 this is a hard one. You were truly an amazing man! You’re home now 🥺 RIP,” another upset fan commented.
A fellow trucker wrote, “Rest easy driver, we got your loads from here.”
His family is working to fulfill his wish of getting home with the help of Truckers Final Mile, an organization that helps fund truckers and their families in difficult times.
The organization’s FB page issued a statement, “Steven’s family has asked Truckers Final Mile to help get him home to near Birmingham, Alabama to be laid to rest.”
