    There was an accident outside of Ludlow Ca yesterday morning . Does anyone have any more info on the accident ? We where told a sleeper truck would be towed into 830 ( Bloomington Ca ) last night . This is all I could find on the net . 1 dead, 1 hurt in big rig crash on I-40 | Inland News | PE.com | Southern California News | News for Inland Southern California
    or Tractor-trailer passenger killed in overturned truck in Ludlow - San Bernardino County Sun

    May god bless both of these souls !

    Accident outside of Ludlow Ca

    It was a KCM team. From what I've heard it was just ran the left tires off the road and just over corrected. The guy in the bunk didn't have a mark on him they think his neck was broke instantly with the truck turning over on the drivers side. Have no more info about the driver though.

    God bless the family. I wonder if the sleeper had his bunk seatbelt on him.

    From what the one article said, I don't think it mattered either way. His neck snapped from the sideways roll.

    Drivers name was Steve Hovenga. Been with YRC for 10 years. Real decent guy.
    I have been told that he had expressed concern on his partners ability to stay awake. And that he had shared those thoughts with the Linehaul manager, Alvin.


    R.I.P., brother.
