    I just drove 20 miles or so on I-20 on the south side of Dallas, and it’s a mess. Three major accidents, and every overpass was hockey-ready. I’m parked (waiting on a load), and I’m gonna stay off the road for a while, let them treat the roads some more.

    Fox just said 3 deaths in that 70-100 car pileup. Looks like a Rich truck there.

    No surprise that FedEx was there plowing into stopped traffic.

    The comments should be harsh. Any driver with a shred of sense would park it. They should be fired. You are stupid to be out there, and if you go out, keep a distance, but it’ll never be, because everyone just holds a wheel now, no common sense

    Too many more accidents like this and city folk will kneejerk and ban trucks from xxxx to xxxx. there are a lot of “woke” people that don’t understand commerce.

    From the comment section on foxnews.

    • “After watching the video of that truck absolutely killing someone, I have to say: Semi trucks and regular vehicles don't mix well. If we were to restrict semi traffic during rush hour periods, we'd save hundreds of lives a year. There should at least be an emergency plan in place to get semi trucks off the highways during icy conditions such as this. Some government official should be held accountable for the failures and lack of planning that led to these deaths.”
