    I have a question.

    the poor kid is sitting in traffic for 1 hour because of the accident that the first semi caused.


    In 1 hour no other car came after him? It just seems weird that there weren’t cars lined up to prevent a truck hitting him and hour after he stopped.

    If the other cars are smart like me, they probably moved out of the way when they saw the semi not slowing down.

    Not familiar with that area but in Texas if there's any sort of slowdown on the highway every car that can will drive over the median to get in a service road or get off at an offramp. I've been sitting in traffic for 45 minutes with no cars behind me because they all either took the exit when they saw the accident or they drove against traffic to take that exit. I would've taken that exit myself but a car on the left lane passed me l, then proceeded to cut me off to try and make the exit while he blinded me with mist from the rain when I saw the slowdown ahead of me.

    I think the driver wasnt qualified to drive the vehicle and the company didnt check. Might have been one of those companies that thinks they not for hire.
