    According to an arrest affidavit, Aguilera-Mederos gave police a statement while in the hospital. He said his brakes failed and he saw his speedometer hit 85 mph. He maneuvered to the right shoulder to avoid stopped traffic. However, when he reached the Denver West overpass, there was a truck stopped on the shoulder, so he chose to swerve back into traffic.

    Investigators reviewed a number of videos that appeared to show Aguilera-Mederos out of control, including one filmed by Pedro Olvera. That video appears to show Aguilera-Mederos passing a runaway truck ramp and signs warning truckers about steep grades as the interstate winds into the Denver area.

    What an ahole give him the needle could have crashed it in the embankment along the shoulder or runaway ramp while still in the mountains.

    I would like to know if he received his CDL legally. By law it states you must be able to read, and write the English language enough to communicate with law enforcement, the public, and be able to read and understand road signs. A video showed him clearly driving past a runoff ramp. May not have been able to read the sign.

    I was thinking the exact same thing, he may not have known that was a runaway ramp.

    If he can’t speak English, then the feds should go right to the Texas DMV location that issued the CDL, and charge the person who issued it also.

    The person who issued the CDL most likely doesn't speak English too Texas is basically Mexico now Reconquista.

    It’s not like the law is unclear on that point. There’s not even any gray area.

    Limited English language the report said. Like I was saying on a previous post on this thread. Now the DOT needs to go to the Texas DMV, or wherever state location that issued his license, and charge the employee as part responsible for issuing a CDL to an unqualified applicant, thus resulting in this accident...

    If you have trouble speaking english, there's no way you can read it, signs, bills, maps, you name it, it sure doesn't make sense, and whoever hired him probably was paying him peanuts if that, and most likely already folded and is in the process of popping up with a new name, and cheap rates.

    No experience
    Limited English
    Logs? Not unless there is an ELD out there that displays in 5 languages.
