Sadly, these two drivers are not fair representatives of "Truck Drivers". I believe they both knew exactly what happened, especially the second driver. The first driver was not paying attention, but the second driver had even more notice and yet he reportedly "swerved to the right" striking both the vehicle and running over the couple. He infact should possibly be charged with manslaughter. He also kept driving while the first driver having pulled over at a truck stop noticed the shoe and notified authorities.

I investigate auto accidents for insurance companies. My experience has reflected that Truck Drivers are extremely considerate and careful. Unfortuneatly, it only takes one or two to give the whole industry a bad name.

I've experienced the same type of mishaps we all do with large trucks when on the road. There are a few drivers with emotional/personality problems that shouldn't be behind the wheel of any vehicle, let alone a truck.

This is extremely sad. The families must be devastated as I know I would be. Yes, it again teaches us not to take chances when on a freeway or busy interstate. But this should reflect on the two men involved, not on the industry.
