    Will the union save his job or will he be driving a white Volvo in Chicago now?

    Depends what happened, and what his job status was. Seasonal, in his first 30 days, fell asleep, driving distracted? White Volvo.

    Blown steer tire or mechanical issue? Try to save him.

    Read an article that said he was alone on the road, so sideswipe is off the table.

    Empty on a bridge and high winds. There were no witnesses so who knows. Could of been another vehicle involved that didn't stop

    I would imagine that portion of the toll road would be under surveillance,especially since a portion of the South Shore Line runs parallel next to it between East Chicago and Gary. If it is they’re probably reviewing the video.
