    I just drove past a bad accident on NB I-94 by Racine Wisconsin. Looks like a white Freightliner Holland driver ran into the back of a container hauler pretty hard. Anybody got info? Is the driver all right? Good luck going in Milwaukee or north. It's a hell of a backup

    So very tragic. I Run that stretch of 94/41 every day on my city run. there are no pull offs or shoulders for about 15 miles or so in the construction and only 3 get offs. The only reason there aren't more accidents is because the backups you encounter don't let you get up to highway speeds. It was reported that the truck that stopped, was checking a possible flat tire. Why anyone would stop in a traffic lane with anything but a blown steer tire is beyond me.

    I run up through there as a open board driver... those container drivers are definitely a different breed....

    Also have seen in white out snow storms drivers stopping in the middle of the road to clean their wipers off.. ...

    Just crazy

    If that's true the driver who stopped in traffic lane should be charged with manslaughter at least. The one time I broke down in the traffic lane right away I called 911 and I went out there with a flashlight on the shoulder trying to warn traffic luckily an Officer arrived in a few minutes.

    The breed is a lot of people with not much common sense, work ethic,and pushed through driver training in too short of time just to fill a truck seat.
