    On Friday march 25 A crst truck was involved in a wreck on I-80 between Laramie & cheyenne causing a fatality. The crst student was doing 5 mph on clear & dry pavement but got disoriented and another big truck rear ended them. According to hwy patrol crst refused to even let the wyoming hwy patrol examine black box so In turn they seized & impounded trk & trl until they get a court order. What's crst trying to hide??? Wyoming hwy patrol states that once investigation is completed findings will be turned over to the da's office for possible criminal charges.

    I'm cool with that, they should get a court order to examine the black box if that is what the law allows. And the police should impound the cmv. But as far as this being a reason not to work at CRST I don't know. Probably most companies have idiots that will do stupid things, and rest assured there is always some dispatcher or customer service person that just wants their load delivered. It's a problem with the industry.

    :biggrin_25524: I too was the victim of speed, i was cruising along just fine at 65 on a major interstate them boom, i blew something under the hood , look too the right window and was sprayed with desial fuel, whole side , got down to 5 mph threw the 4 ways on and limped too a off ramp a quater mile ahead, so until i see proof of what happen too the crst truck i will not judge the student or anyboby else , till they say other wise , and yes this when i drove for crst, so things do breakdown in the truck, :biggrin_25524:
