    @ontheedge7: This sounds like something that would have been picked up and published in the news. Can you provide a link to the news stories? Or his obituary?

    I'll verify all this folks. Ill be in at the phoenix yard next week. Tomorrow ill call the joliet yard dispatch and find out myself. Ill post whatever truth I get on here in the next couple days.

    I do remember hearing about a driver that was found in his truck deceased of something, at a truck stop in Indiana. He was discovered by the truck stop personnel after about 5 days of him sitting there. Truck idled for 5 days. This was last summer. The driver was not responding to qualcomm.

    This was on the satellite radio. Roaddog news.

    Dear Professional driver I would like to know what they say to you. After taking to over nine head of everything but the tolet they stop taking my calls and. Lawyer up maybe they answer a fellow truck driver. My husband name was Richard Avery Parker. He was just under 54 years old he took a load from sparks nevada where we were from to Ohio from Ohio to Joliet Illinois. Phone records show he called in at 4:30 his immediate supervisor can be found in sparks nevada. He said it wouldn't have happen. I know this not all dispatchers our jerks just the one who took my pooks call. And iam not trying to hide anything ni t even the pain of what it took to get him hom!

    Windsmith it took almost a month to bring my baby home. When you die in the state of Illinois they take the dead real serious. I had to get permits to get him from the coroner in which he had to lay on a slab for a week before he was taken to the cremation due to the permits. So after they dissects his body because knights transportation let him set there in his truck his organism liguidfy. They had to cut into his brain take a sample to find out what he die of. I look in the obituary for three weeks nothing was ever written. I have a policy I haven't recieved because Joliet detectives can't seem to get a police report to the insurance company. Could it be they drop the ball too? And as for my husbands belongings they threw them in some boxes with no itemized list with an invoice for a spill kit they order on the 30th of august. What do I have to gain by posting a horrible story like this. Were Christians. I am hurt and angry I so the fourm and I just want others to be careful and watch out for your fellow truckers. I know forgiveness is in the future but not today I need they to acknowledge their mistake. What if it had been one of the knights brothers or sons.

    Spoke to a couple of people in the corp office that I know. I also spoke to a couple of drivers out of the reno yard. Nobody has heard about this. They have not heard about an incident of this type happening. Only thing was about a driver a few years back getting into a real bad accident resulting in a fatality. But nothing about a fatality in or near one of the terminals.

    it's a shame this had to end with this result...one thing I tell a company is if I start to feel i need medical attention...i'm getting medical attention and I could care less about that truck and trailer...

    There's NO freight inside a trailer worth me losing my life over and if a company thinks otherwise,well................

    they can take that job and put it where the sun don't shine...

    nothing we as truckers haul is worth more than our lives..period.
