    Like I said it looks like it’s “back to business as usual” in that neck of the woods as more people started traveling as the states reopen. At least with the stay at home orders the stupidity on the highways was minimized to a certain level but now....:rolleyes:

    Yep, E-logs did it. They were fighting the E-log software when they jack knifed the truck.

    There's only like what? A couple bolts holding those cabs on? Not suprising they come off so easy.

    Honestly it probably a good thing that cab came off. Otherwise the driver would have been smeared by the cab being crushed around him.
