  1. My God this is terrible! I wonder if his breaks went out on him b/c he was flat flying & when he had to make that 1 curve, he didn’t hit his breaks. Either way may God be with everyone & their families. Such a horrific story.

  2. Obviously his breaks went out looking at the second clip where he is trying to take the left lane in the curve so momentum would push him out towards the right lane as the curve tightened….had the right idea but would have been better off flipping it in that curve!!.. BUT…..BIG BUT….as a Human Being and a Truck Driver He had the responsibility to use any other way to slow or stop his truck without using other cars and trucks to do it!!!! If All else fails….You try to use the grass and gravel on the shoulder to do it!!! I would rather take the chance of killing myself rather than plowing into innocent people….i personally wouldn't be able to live with myself!!! Another key thing here….He was too young!!

  3. Maybe not intentional, no, but at only 23 years old, it was from a lack of experience. I couldn't drive OTR until I was 26 due to my insurance company and looking back, I sometimes wonder how I managed to not have a single incident those 10 years. Lucky I guess. The sad part is, how do you get experience? With hands on training and performing whatever job you were hired to do. This accident could've been avoided so easily.
    This driver's going to prison for a very long time, as well as he should. What a horrible tragedy for everyone involved.

  4. Anyone defending the driver knows nothing about driving trucks trucks. Even IF the breaks were out there were many warning signs before, a runaway lane and for anyone defending him based on the whole you don't know what you would have done in that situation argument it doesn't matter what you would have done you're not a truck driver he is and his one responsibility is to get his load to it's destination without f**** crashing.

  5. Those poor folks don’t deserve to die neither does the driver deserve any criminal charges. If anything just revoke his CDL and be over with it at the most. Earlier he was trying to get the truck to overturn because he lost his brakes because totaling a truck is a lot better than killing one person let alone 4 people.
