This driver must have been asleep at the wheel. No I do not mean actually eyes closed and snoring, but so fatigued and exhausted he might have as well been in the sleeper instead of behind the wheel.

Pat- in- Tifton-Ga,

Thank God your not a Judge. You are full of hate and vengefulness.

Yes, this is a terrible thing that happened but your attitude is beyond appropriate.

Yes I thank God that you are also not a Judge. You evidently are the very type of left wing liberal that would allow murderers and child rapist to go back on the streets with a petty fine. You would also be the very type to promote gay marriage, pedophilia, and legalized drugs and prostitution.
Through your rosy colored glasses the world is all sugar and spice and no one should have to stand accountable for anything they do.
Yes some Judge you would be, pity to all the victims of crimes brought before you.

Anti-Liberal,

I'm probably the most anti liberal person you will ever meet and your comment only shows how your unable to use common sense.

Should a person be punished if its proven that they were negligent? Yes

However, to let the parent, friend or family member hand out a verdict is not justice but revenge. History shows that when vigilantes take justice in their own hands justice is not served and can lead to an unjust verdict...may I remind you how Jesus came to be put on the cross?

Wow....it has been a few years since I have even been on here. I just happened to be looking up some information on another case in Sparks, and I saw where there are new comments on this particular topic. I know Pat in Tifton, her daughter is one of my best friends and Michelle was OUR BEST FRIEND!!! To Truth 2 and Anti-Liberal.....I honestly do not know what to say right now. Pat is just expressing her feelings on this because she knows what her daughter and the rest of Michelles friends and all of Michelles family have gone through since that terrible day. If either one of you ever, God forbid, find yourselves in this situation, then, and ONLY then, will you ever be able to understand the anger and loss associated with this. And you would understand why Pat said the things she did. How DARE any of you attack anyone for their feelings in such a heartbreaking tragedy such as this!!!!!!

I apologize, Anit-Liberal, I just realized I may have misunderstood your comment. I think you were speaking to Truth 2 and not to Pat.

And what about the thousands of automobile drivers that cause so many near misses that only us professional truck drivers can avoid? The real issue here is to train young drivers and teach them of the potential dangers of driving dangerously, aggressively, and down right insane around road trucks. So many drivers thing that just because that truck has eighteen wheels, it has more brakes and more tires on the ground so it can stop faster. WRONG! That truck is often over 20 times heavier than your average automobile making it 20 times harder to stop. Also so many young male drivers think it is some kind of a game to cut off or buzz trucks on the highway, "...after all, that driver will do everything to keep from hitting me. Or he'll pay dearly!" Right, the commercial driver is nearly always at fault until the accident is thoroughly investigated, so an alert driver will indeed try to avoid the aggressor at all cost, except to leave the road. This fact is something all automobile drivers need to be aware of. A professional truck driver will never leave the road unless his own life is at risk, and we are taught to hit the one causing the accident if it is possible.
your comment started out great but like all good things,it turned to crap."a professional truck driver will never leave the road unless his own life is at risk".did you have to study to become that stupid?is that what they taught you in a PROFESSIONAL TRUCK DRIVING SCHOOL?i was a professional truck driver for many years before i had my accident.it was 2000 and i was driving south on a winding back road in mo..it was 3 in the morning and i noticed a car was coming toward me in my lane.i laid on the horn but it kept coming.as quick as it happened a thousand senarios played through my mind.everything from how much i would make off of insurance to the parents having to bury a body.when i knew i couldnt wait any longer i put it in the ditch,only thing though was the ditch was a hundred feet deep.point of the story is i made it out alive as well as a sleepy college kid made it home.i lost my career but my conscience is clean.please dont let some super trucker attitude send you or someone else to their grave.that kid probably hasnt given me a second thought but i think of him regularly.
