    Perhaps police work wasn't her cup of tea. Suicide by truck? Twice the legal limit and anti depressants.
    And the power to arrest, maim, kill, seems to be easily handed out these days.

    If cop was .16 and the trucker was .004, the trucker would have been charged with vehicular homicide and no mention of the cops alcohol level. I guarantee it

    In this case trucker is in the clear.
    Let’s not also forget that this began when the officer was DRIVING THE WRONG WAY on I-10!
    The officer’s estate owes CFI a KW,plus the trucker can sue her estate for medical expenses associated with the accident.
    This is one of the reasons why the toxicology report was done in TRAVIS COUNTY(Austin) and not HARRIS COUNTY(Houston)-to avoid conflict of interest in the investigation since the officer worked for Houston Police!

    Had a case similar to this in my area some years ago.
    A lady New York State trooper was texting and drifted over the center lane causing a head on with a truck killing her.
    Dot Cops took the truck apart and wrote the owner a bunch of violations even though he did nothing wrong in the accident.

    I knew Guy casually from talking in a CFI terminal breakrooms. IIRC he has a 20 yr+ stellar driving record. Last I heard he wasnt able to drive after this so I'd sue the cops estate for the money I lost by being not able to drive.

    makes me think of that case against "werner" i think. truck went into oncoming traffic killed by truck, but crooked lawyers made the case that the truck shuldnt have been there at that point of time during impact

    1) Guy Pearson, the 65 year old CFI truck driver, (per the news article), probably feels ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE about the accident and the police officer being killed.
    2) HOPEFULLY Guy Pearson fully recovers from any injuries or medical mishaps that came about, due to the accident.
    3) HOPEFULLY Guy Pearson will be able to continue driving, along with being allowed to continue driving, after healing is done, & all investigations are done.
    4) If Guy Pearson is not able to continue driving for one reason or another, along with not being able to obtain another job in another line of work, he is old enough to apply for Social Security retirement benefits, along with being old enough to qualify for Medicare. HOPEFULLY he also has additional retirement income to also draw upon.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    The worst part in all of this is that this will be listed as an accident on his driving record when he did absolutely nothing wrong. I have 4 accidents since February of 2018. No injuries to anyone. Little damage. I was not at fault nor ticketed for any of them. Two of them happened over Thanksgiving last year in the same week. Any of you that drove that week know how insane it was, and I was driving from Nashville to Atlanta. I can normally make it in around 3.5 hours. It was taking me over 5 that week. I have ZERO tickets on my record, never had a license revoked or been charged with a DUI, etc. Never failed a drug test. Yet I have had recruiters tell me to "Clean up my record". I asked some bimbo how that would be possible?

    Up here, officers get fired for needing to get drunk. Reasoning being, if you have to get drunk, you cant be in control when it is work time.
    Granted she is dead now. RIP
