    my computer's sound card does not work, so no, i cannot hear the video voices, only can see the video.

    yes, indeed, that WE driver should have been beaten to a pulp. he's a useless POS for not (most likely) paying any attention.

    hopefully he got fired, and sue in civil court.

    yes, this is the reality of today. you got morons out there, they need to be dealt with.

    you said something about calling 911 in English....i went with that.

    Most likely not paying attention. There is another vid on youtube where the 'trainer' was driving and reading/writing a msg on the qualcomm. Student was filming it from his bunk. Usually its the dryvan drivers who end up doing this ####. They have a huge junk yard in Nashville of all their trucks that they salvage from crashes/accidents.

    Not all of there drivers are bad but since anyone with a cdl can be hired even if they were fired for rolling over or getting in a wreck at another company. Western express is a 2nd/3rd chance company.

    I don't know about that. I have yet to see two WE trucks wrecked at the same spot at the same time.

    They pay their "last chance" drivers $0.10 a mile to start with all the miles they can run. They get what they pay for.

    I watched the video again- I'm betting he clobbered a few other vehicles once he pushed the blazer out of the way- Im guessing that expedition and a few others got collected as well.

    Bad week for Western Express. First this company driver is distracted and mowing down everything in his path. Then then CEO comes out against a different driver who actually was just trying to help people with free Hone Depot give-a-ways!
     
    NavigatorWife and lovesthedrive Thank this.

    I will add to this "hopefully he got fired, and sue in civil court" to stiff criminal charges and a review of his cdl.

    Be safe driver.

    I am somewhat glad I dont work there anymore. You call on Safety for a repair and they tell you to drive the broken parts down the road because they dont want to send a repair truck. Or you cant pull a trailer as when you connect the pigtail it blows the fuses in the cab and shuts your truck down. If you dont get paid??? They will advance your back pay that they cant remember how to pay you and charge you $50 for having to pay you an advance on money they owe.

    Was the driver who caught the wreck on camera talking to Vladimir Putin or what? He didn't even sound fazed LOL.
