    That was way too fast. 90?

    I usually count front to back against 60 feet to find speed, but this one was gone before I finished the first second in words. At least 60 way above same.

    It would be vehicular homicide then I would imagine without knowing the process of that particular crash.

    He was speeding down the shoulder? I guess his lawyer will have to use the “e-logs made me do it” defense.

    Wow . another statistic ....I miss the good ol days..when people that are trying to leave a truckstop would actually get out and help guide you into a spot.. not just fly around you going 25 in the parking lot ..we learned with trucks that have a real stick transmission.. so much better control I don't go over 15 mph and get passed on the way out..

    Probably looked from whatever distracted him, couldn't stop in time and tried to avoid by hitting the shoulder.

    Hopefully they can surgically install his ##### on his forehead. If he ever gets out of prison, we need a way to identify the mental midgets in our society.
