What's with all the truck & bus wrecks these days? Have we laid off the best drivers & kept the inept?

It seems this was my Step Father. He is well, and on his way home now.

The driver had a blowout on the steer tire and managed to avoid injuries. I'd say he's pretty experienced to manage that!

In response to Mike. The driver has years of experience, and the accident was due to a faulty front tire. While I agree many of the accidents may be caused by inexperience, I can assure you that this one is not a result of driver error or incompetence.

Why was he driving with a faulty front tire? He as the driver is held accountable for the vehicle he is driving. He will probably be ticketed for wreckless driving. My father was a trucker. He retired at 62 years old & couldn't stand being out on the road with the young bucks who don't allow the proper distance between vehicles. I get tired of looking in the rearview mirror & seeing a truck on my tail with not enough room to get a VW in between us. I know not all drivers are jerks but there are enough to make them all look bad just as a few bad cops tarnish the image of a police department. There are too many truckers with the attitude that their machine is bigger than our cars so get out of their way & of course in a crash they are going to win, but in the end everybody loses. If this had happened 12 hours either way their could have been fatalities no matter how good the driver is.

My husband was one of the first workers on the scene this morning and had me come out with drinks for everyone, and after seeing this accident, your step father was a very lucky man! I'm glad to hear he is doing well; he obviously had a higher spirit along for the ride.

Mike,

I am not sure where your anger comes from. Are you that bored? I will, and have said many, many things about my StepFather, Most of them true, mind you, however it hurts me that you have such harsh words to say. My Stepfather fought for our Country in Vietnam, and as many unkind words about him I could say, How dare you put into writing your hateful words. HE is not out to get you, or anyone else. Are you a veteran? Me thinks you are fat, hateful loser. I will shred my Stepfather, I will not, however, allow you to do the same, Get out of your house HERMIT, I have the balls to give my last name and where I live.

I can't believe the negative comments posted here. Where are you people coming from? Have you never had a blowout in a car much less am 18-wheeler? Well, I have and Dave had an angel on his shoulder watching out for him.It is very fortunate that there were no injuries.

I have met Dave and he is a very fine hard-working person. Dave we are thinking of you and Debbie and thankful that you weren't hurt.

You are so judgemental for someone who wasn't involved and who has no right to judge those that are out hauling these items for you. Please refrain from being so rude and inconsiderate to those that know the man and know that he is a very exerienced and careful person!

Don't blame others for your complete lack of driving ability, or for that matter lack of copmmon sense!

My husband and I were stuck in traffic on 64 the day of the accident, and by the looks of it boy that would have been a long drop off! The driver was so lucky! I just wish they would have had police/DOT close off the needed lane (right) farther on down the road as you had your typical nudgey people that wait for the last moment to get over into the correct lane that causes the traffic back up to begin with!
