    According to police, the semi-truck driver did not stop after the crash.

    Terrible, just terrible

    I saw that, too. That's a travesty. Hope they catch him; he's giving us ALL a bad rap.

    How does somebody traveling behind not see the incident aftermath and report and follow the h&r vehicle? That road is too busy during broad daylight hours for somebody not to have been a key witness.

    Sadly the majority of folks just "don't want to get involved." And then there are those that just don't care.

    The tollways around Chicagoland have surveillance cameras. It's only a matter of time before they catch the idiot who did this.

    It's very common in that godforsaken place ... I already seen a four wheeler to an illegal u turn RIGHT IN FRONT of a DOT trooper, the trooper just kept going and pulled over a truck. Every time I go through that area I get one of those idiots with the Chicagoland companies(hard to keep track of who is who because they change their names and dot numbers an a daily basis)almost merging into me, or riding my bumper, and of course with that ###### phone in hand. They are as bad or worse than the already brainless four wheelers around there. And also in other parts of the country I run when a vehicle does something really stupid around me it almost always has Illinois tags or belonging to a company based in Chicago area.
     
    Bud A. Thanks this.
