    Troop E personnel are on scene at a tractor trailer rollover crash northbound at mile marker 169 in Carmel. Troopers say I95 in the crash area will be down to one lane and will likely remain through morning commute. Put you phones down, slow down and drive safe.

    So... what would putting a phone down do?
    “New to early morning driving.”
    That tells me, as the sun came up, he went
    1.stareblind, ran off road, jackknifed.
    2. Fell asleep due to the vampire hours ending when the sun rose into the sky, ran off road and jackknifed.
    Don’t think he went to rolling, trailer doesn’t show damages of a 360 roll over.
    My thoughts anyway..

    Not a rollover, just a jacknife with effort.

    Will be hard for him to log sleeper birth time now.

    My guess is the driver fell asleep. Right at about dawn is killer for a lot of folks. It's not when it's pitch dark outside like people might assume. It's when it starts getting bright.

    I was "new to driving" at one time, as were we all. And I didn't do anything even remotely like this!

    Wow. Ripped the cab off the chassis. This is the first time I’ve heard of any of Midland’s rigs being involved in any accident-and they run mostly the East Coast or part of the Midwest.
