    12-22-2010 MAN IN SERIOUS CONDITION AFTER SEMI ACCIDENT


    A Central Point man is still in serious condition at Rogue Valley Medical Center after a semitrailer tipped yeterday afternoon, crushing his truck at the intersection of Table Rock and Biddle roads. Fifty-nine-year-old William Geary was pinned inside his truck for about an hour and a half while emergency crews worked to free him. After the semitrailer was cleared from the pickup, rescuers were able to extricate him. The semitrailer's shifting load and its speed appear to be factors in the accident.

    Was this a Conway driver in a rental truck or an interline carrier pulling our trailers?

    I couldn't makeout any markings. The trailer sides didn't look like they had any. I don't think it was one of ours.

    That's not a Con-Way tractor or trailers. WHY is the title still identifying this as Con-Way? Who decided this was a Con-Way in the first place?

    A Con-Way tractor/trailer drives through the intersection after the accident put this is clearly NOT our equipment

    News Link: Central Point semi driver cited in last week's crash | MailTribune.com


    This was an Express Transport set per the news link. A Con-Way truck could be seen coming into the video well after the main wreck if you watch the entire video. Another Con-way witch hunt seems to have taken place. Either way this is definitely bad press for the trucking industry as a whole !
