    From what was posted. The driver was looking at his phone.. Not sure if that's what happened ,but if it was. it's a lesson to be learned.

    Not all but most which is more than half the driver's still look down at their phone taking their eyes completely off the road
    This is what happens when you take your eyes off the road, Common Sense

    Pictures like this really enforce the fact that you need to be on your toes at all times.
    I don't like having a camera in my tractor, but it has forced me to keep a better following distance.

    The drive is alive. Being a Vol firefighter if I rolled up on this my first though would have written him off.
    Prayers for the driver

    That's a heck of a thing to spread about a driver fighting for his life if you don't know.

    I ran those equipment numbers, both showed being on l/h runs. Neither is OOS. No credible news story to back it up.

    Well let's hope management bring's this accident up. That way we can all get the right story of what happened.. Like i said in my post weather he was or he wasn't, it's still a horrible accident. But we should all learn something from it. Rumor or not.

    That's a horrific accident! I said a prayer for him and his family when I saw that. What we do is very dangerous and we have to be on our game at all times. It may not be us, but the others around us we have to watch out for.

    If you look closely, it looks like the engine,radiator etc went under the cab. It did what it's engineered to do. The drivers seat, including the arm rest seem intact. Be safe out there.

    There was a post on fb indicating leg and back surgery went well and he is being fitted for a back brace. Driver still on a vent, but only for one more day. Doing well all things considered (from what I read).

    Driver seems to be out of the woods. From word of mouth. Long road back. Likely to never drive again. But not dead.
