    Get out of CA! I'm hearing an accident involving a Prime Driver on 101 today. Solo driver, no student or traineed.

    Pretty good source at the terminal is saying a CHP officer was involved and was sent to the hospital.

    I think life might be a little tough for Prime drivers in CA for a while.

    Yep. Prime truck drifted onto the shoulder where it struck the CHP car which then slammed into the car the officer had pulled over. Both the officer and the other motorist went to the hospital suffering "moderate injuries"

    pretty pic of the truck sandwiched into a ditch or culvert.

    sorry off topic, but I'm not starting a new thread to announce this to the haters around here.

    Almost sounds like that guy shouldn't have been behind the wheel of a truck....

    I-95 rest area...started to pull into a spot to find a #### 4 wheeler parked towards the front of it, got lucky and found one of the last open spots here

    that guy in CA could have been QC'ing or falling asleep or something. I would imagine ChuckTaylor might be right when he says that the CHIPS might be looking closer at us. They might creatively "find" things to ding us with too...... Do your Pretrips in detail when in CA and you might be OK. Put a dashcam looking back at you so you can prove that you were A: Not on the phone. and B: you had your seatbelt on!

    Kenly 95 getting fueled after 10hr brk, then headed up I99 through PA and US219 up through NY to Buffalo. Should be a scenic route.

    Totaled a brand, new trailer too. Bet he won't be driving for Prime fer much longer!

    Holy cluster, Batman! the US322/US22/I81 interchange in Harrisburg PA is a mess! Northbound I81 has to go to x72 to get anywhere on those roads, so be warned! King of Prussia PA. Heading for Bristol and a hazmat load later on.
