    This is further proof you CAN lock up brakes with antilock trailer brake systems. (I suppose it's possible there was a defect in that particular system but I doubt it) and he may have been empty or very light, but still.

    Actually it was head on with another car to the left of the semi. I think debris caused the brake lock up.

    There's proof right there of why you need a radio, could have gotten a warning from someone ahead or from the other side.

    Would the wrong way driver show up on your Waze app?

    I hope the wrong way idiot lost their life. I hope it was very painful and they suffered for a long time before dying.

    23 yr old mother of a 9 month old died.
    Wrong way driver is alive in the hospital. Man was DUI (not his first time).

    He's going away for a long time. But not long enough .

    Of course the idiot that caused it probably survived. Truck driver did a great job keeping the truck under control after impact.
