    It was CR England pulling Target trailer. Very unfortunate. The OD driver left 2 kids behind as well.

    I spoke with a OD driver and indeed the driver tried to make a U turn on highway.

    Ok.. but, you know…”truckers talk”.. I’ve been driving 18 years: no way he could have tried that there… just saying… look at where he crossed over when you go by… but, what do I know??

    If you actually read the news story it clearly states the driver was attempting a u turn.

    On the picture the trailer is on concrete/asphalt whatever the surface was and literally straight across which illustrates the driver made a U-turn and by the way I’ve been by that immediate area twice now in the last 48 hours there’s nothing that shows that any vehicle went through the median grass that is btw.

    CRE is in deep trouble if doing an illegal U-turn on the interstate was the case!

    that looks a dry van looks like other side because I don’t see any insulation from reefer trailer… KL Breeden & Sons is the company that pulls the dry van trailers for target DC in that region out of West Jefferson Ohio from my understanding as I say inhave seen 2 of their trucks in the last two days in that area pulling target trls and I seen that trucks in that DC.. but regardless of whoever it was is in big trouble
