Dash cammer says trucker committed a 'smoke and run,' leading to multi-vehicle crash
Looks like the truck has a weed burner exhaust,possibly in HEST mode while driving.
Either way, the dashcammer didn’t reduce speed or maintain a space cushion!
Smoke And Run??

This is why you never, ever stop when in smoke, fog, or precipitation.AModelCat Thanks this.
i dunno, can the trucker really be charged with anything?
he can always claim "it happened all of a sudden, so it must be the fault of the computer"....

Just doin’ a California re-gen. As long as that truck has it’s clean idle sticker it is compliant and allowed to smoke and burn things down.

No such thing as a "smoke and run," but there are such things as "following too closely" and "too fast for conditions."
Good luck with your legal hail Mary.
