    You guess is as good as mine. Maybe the driver was distracted or fatigued,possibly a mechanical or medical issue,who knows we’ll find out soon enough. The car hauler driver is laid up in the hospital in critical condition.
    That stretch of I-26 between Asheville and Spartanburg is getting bad with accidents,including a plane crash,of all things.

    I suppose only half hour in, we can rule out fatigue.
    GM CHRYSLER, where's the love of God in these situations? I know, it doesn't work that way, God takes you in mysterious ways. It's heart wrenching to think of how the afternoon may have transpired, and to end like this. Pretty harsh. Had to be distracted driving on the trucker drivers part, pretty sure they will never turn another wheel, OR sleep at night, but again, this is the cost of our modern society today. Our first intention would be to throttle this driver, but may as well throttle society while you're at it.
    I realize this is an inopportune time to say this, but distracted driving seems to be far worse than anything I remember before drugs were the hot button, seems like we traded this for that. I feel awful for the family, regardless of what they were driving, just shows, they go out the door, you may never see them again. Ironically, that's life.
