    I heard through the grapevine that there was a problem with the trailer coming off the 5th wheel. I hope a thorough investigation is made. My condolences to his family and to his fellow Cleveland-218 road drivers.

    If you're coming east on I84, there's an unusually sharp, tricky left hand curve just before exit 17. Come into it too fast and it can be trouble. Sad news in any event.

    A person that departs from this world never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds. Rest In Peace Rob.
    Fyi, Robert was a 211 driver.

    that barn nearby lost many skilled employees over the years, trailer was probably loaded incorrectly

    happens when you replace good workers with bad, im sure getting a new hire for 5 bucks an hour less is worth a life

    Actually they found that the trailer had larger diameter tires. That's why there was so little clearance.

    yeah for that incident, what about other incidents, the industry needs skilled people and those skilled people should be treated with respect

    I hope you realize I was kidding about the tire size.

    I can't speak for anyone else but I've always been treated with respect on the job and likewise I treat others with the same respect. I've also seen over my many decades working that many times individuals shoot themselves in the foot and ask for trouble. Just saying.

    Yeah, people that do that to others usually to others usually find better jobs to work at.
