    Probably texting and driving, can't just not instantly respond to a text, everyone knows that'd be rude lol

    Actually he is gonna have to drive for western express making no money for three years till his at fault preventable accident with property damage falls off his record. Lets be real here.....No one is gonna hire him with that

    Yall ran that man off.....lolz I'm curious too....OP, it isn't the end of your career by a longshot. I can't say for sure if local companies will look at you. There are OTR companies that will work with you, but while that's on your license (for the next 3 years), you just need a job. You better take whatever @Chinatown suggests. Just pay attention next time.

    I said the three year thing first lol. And we are just telling the truth. Would you hire someone to drive your 100 thousand dollar truck with 5 months experience and a preventable at fault accident with property damage? Not only will that raise your insurance rates it will also lower your companies safety score

    I bet he gets another Job, anyways. If every accident had a 3 yr penalty, a lot would be out of a Job. Even a major, usually only causes problems for 1 yr. A lot of Companies will fire a Driver, and re hire him after a year, if he hasn’t had another major.

    For a new driver ( 5 months experience) it could be a career killer

    @Novas21 look up LTLs on your area, since you had a incident you can maybe get on with central transport.

    After driving safe you can eventually move on to the premiere LTLs such as ABF, Old Dominion,Estes,FedEx, Ups or Saia.

    Good luck.
