    Wow, I used drive that Flatbed truck hauling the pallets of mulch. Total outlaw outfit what a bunch of complete scumbags. I left them after 6 months.

    Was it Amazon that was at fault?

    Don’t know but I can pretty much guarantee that the Flatbed was way overweight and in complete violation of hours of service.

    Waaaaay over. In fact I bet that truck weighed in at just shy of a buck twenty.

    I watched the video from the news chopper and it looks like the Northbound Amazon truck came in way too fast and jackknifed it and crossed into the southbound lane. The southbound mulch truck was just getting up to speed and never had a chance.

    On the bright side, Amazon is in the clear. That wasn't an employee driving the truck, it was an "outside contractor." Lol

    Even if it says "Amazon" on the side of the truck.
