    I am wondering if they checked the ford truck operator to see if his cell phone made them distracted.

    i'd like to know, how a pick up truck (box truck, is way off, more like a cable company truck), jack knifed..???

    obviously, speed and inattention on the ford truck driver.....had it been a chevy, or a dodge, i think this would have never happened.

    Im just glad they acknowledged that the box truck was at fault, not the trucker.

    Score one point for us trucker folk.
