    Very small cross over… you can see where he went across the median in a really small area between the guardrail and the wires…. I drove past it going west while it was being cleaned up.

    I live near there. They reported it was the Westbound driver that died but it was actually the Eastbound driver driving Old Dominion that died.

    I am reading on another message board that the driver that survived was airlifted to a hospital where he succumb to his injuries and passed away. Their source was social media but they did not say which social media.

    The whole accident is senseless and sickening.

    Maybe the driver who crossed the median had a stroke or heart attack or something… it’s really sad

    He was making a u turn in a median crossover, because he couldn’t be bothered to go 5 miles down the interstate to an exit and make a flip. I hope the old dominion drivers widow gets millions from the mega carrier pulling the target trailer and target as well.

    I just can’t see that: but, I wasn’t there.. I did go by the wreck as they were cleaning it up and today I looked again and saw where the truck crossed over the median. It was a very small area and at angle and down an small embankment and back up again to the other side. What you are saying was done just doesn’t make sense. But, again; I wasn’t there,
