I am so upset at how you guys portrayed this story. Other stations at least kept it basic saying he was distracted by a video.. but NO you guys have to go and make it about porn...which isnt even true! I was disgusted when I saw your version of this story. It was tasteless and uncalled for.

A truck driver is suppose to be a professional driver and obeys the laws but it look likes this guy wasn't watching th eroad as he was suppose to be doing. My husband is a trucker and knowing him like I do, he probably would of stop to help if he was able to. This driver did break the law also about not having an 8 hours break.. Bad Boy..My Prayers go to the family of the lady hit.

Reguardless of what he was watching. He wsn't watching, what he should have been watching (the road).

When I see/hear of things like this, I sit back and think of all the people who have asked me why I gave up driving yrs ago, and went to walking or using public transportation.

You are an idiot, why shouldn't they say he was watching porn? That is what he was doing, if he would have waited until a rest area to watch his movie (nothing wrong with porn) that poor woman would still be alive.

Regardless of what this man was watching, he should not have had his laptop in operation while he was driving. The point is, he was doing something other than driving, and hit and killed a human being.
As for the not enough sleep issue, who knows if it was a personal decision or if his trucking company was pushing him to "get the job done".
This woman's family have to live without her for the rest of their lives, and he'll have to live with his actions for the rest of his.

The woman should have pulled her car over to the side of the road. I understand she just hit a deer but come on, you have to think a little and get your stopped car off the road. This does NOT excuse the truck driver. He should have been watching the road not his laptop. Doesn't matter whether it was porn or the Disney channel. Too many people not paying attention. My prayers to the ladies family.

I agree with midnight, the young woman who was killed was partially at fault for not moving her vehicle to a safe place. That's lesson number one, move off the road. They were both at fault, her and the truck driver.

Well I happen to know him, I work for the same company. Believe it or not this guy was a training instructor for the company, and he was the head of the safety audit board. oh and the company does push us to "Get the Job done". they will give us loads knowing we don't have enough hours to complete it on time.
