Another update to this story.
An update on this crash reports that this young trucker has been cited with 40 charges.
Remain in Colorado? Yeah right...
I agree with BIG R GUY.
Updated link on hearing for the accident.
The company no doubt saved a lot on wages by not hiring an experienced, dependable driver. Maybe this will put them out of business.
Reading the article, it states his lawyer tried to blame the truck on the shoulder with his 4-ways on as illegally parked, but the judge threw it out. Also looks like his lawyer has an arrest record?
I could be wrong but there used to be runaway truck ramps with sand on that downhill before you hit the bottom
He could have rolled it into the embankment but would have most likely been killed so he saved his own but killed and severely injured everyone else selfish bastard.
Just wonder if the guy driving the truck in this accident obtained his CDL from these guys?http://www.freightwaves.com/news/tw...-hundreds-of-fake-commercial-drivers-licenses
It might surprise how an attorney can shift blame on anything in the area. Several years ago there was a similar accident in California. My employer had a tractor/trailer making a delivery at a business nearby & within view of of the accident scene. The rig was completely off the roadway in a business parking lot. The lawyer convinced the jury the parked rig distracted his client & made the company 1% liable which resulted in a huge expense for the company. I wonder if the jurors realize that trucking companies pass the costs of doing business on to the consumer.
