    I hope the drivers are all right.I know those nemf trucks are opened up quiet a bit.They pass me every nite on the thruway like i'm standing still,of course that ain't hard to do when your driving a big "R" truck.All kidding aside.i hope the drivers pull through!

    I'm not sure that they "blow" by because they are governed at 68, and they don't pull for crap, but they are governed faster than a lot of trucks out there.

    I don't think he was from Syracuse because I probably would've heard if he was.

    Ohhh ok. I was going to apply there a while ago but the manager said they don't get very many miles and that's it's not a way to feed a family...or something to that effect.

    Tractor looks like it may have been a sleeper

    Once apon at time this tractor may of been a sleeper,but now its scrap metal.
    Its very hard to see this wreak,and know anyone lived?

    I've always called accidents science experements.

    To see if any number of objects can occupy the same space at the same time.

    So far the conclusion to this thought is no way,can any more than one object occupy any given space,and still remain in its original state of design.

    An update for you...finally. The driver was out of the Meridan, CT terminal and was coming from the Bethpage, NY terminal. His truck hit on the right side and he was not killed. Had there been a passenger they most likely would've been killed.

    It works but this is the wrong topic. That link was already posted in the topic that those pictures relate to. This topic is for an accident that happened last year and those pictures are not of this accident.

    NEMF you don't have to answer this.
    But are you in an upstate,or down state New York terminal?
    I'm a UPS Freight city driver out of Rochester New York I was just woundering if I may know you?

    I remember when the NEMF operation started up here in Rochester,and I know a lot of the city drivers there now.

    They moved in to the old Lions terminal which was a former Preston terminal.
