How did they know what kind of car it was? What a shame, amazing how people find ways to die everyday.

I was 7-10 seconds behind that accident. Hate to say it, but he deserved it. Endangering the lives of other drivers is asinine. I'm so glad he hit no one else except the largest object (trailer) on the highway (and thankfully the trucker was okay too). I mean, what if it was you he hit? I even saw the trailer swerve from the distance after impact. I'm sure his death was painless because when I passed the scene in my car, it was obliterated with pieces everywhere! I have never in my life seen a car go so fast past me (while I'm driving 65-70 mph). People, slow down! No need to rush to work. Work isn't that crucial (well unless you have a Porsche payment to make)...

It doesn't matter what time of day it is, or which hwy. or road either ... some people in this county drive too fast. Slow down you egotistical morons. That goes for the people who jack rabbit between lanes without turn signals, cross over 3 lanes to exit, think the fast lane is the slow lane or can't merge properly too. The only time I see CHP on the hwy. is if it's a 3 day drunken holiday. And then only one lonely unit is tied up with a stop while hundreds of cars fly by mocking that unit.

Because a 944 is hardly a Porsche.

It was my father,age 65. The family is extremly grateful that no on else was hurt. My Father has suffered with mental illness and two hospitals denied him admission two days prior to this. The family is going to be looking into possible negligence on the hospitals behalf.

When people are mentally ill and end up in the hospital for treatment, the hospitals need to admit these cases.

Again, the family is so grateful that he did not injure anyone else.

thank you.

So is a 928 when talking to traditional flat 6 enthusiasts but that's beside the point. It sounds as though the driver purposely
ran into the back of the truck. If the post before me is true, it is heart wrenching to see a family member struggle with mental illness especially if the end result is suicide. It's a result you hope can be avoided until it happens.
Please be reasonable

Guys: Please don't judge people for the first action you see. Someone is asking for forgiveness because of the action of his father.

We all made mistakes, we all have driven over the speed limit. Unfortunately this was a big mistake for this person.

I'm sure that God will grant also forgiveness so the driver will rest in peace.

Sarcasm my friend directed at those more concerned with the merits of the car than with the driver who died.
Wow, I'm sorry you didn't get it.
Pray for the family who lost a loved one.

I'm just appauled that some people are just so cold hearted as this "Barker A**Hole".

He's had that car for 10 years. You are right, mentally ill people don't drive Porsches. If he was driving a chevy, would that be better for your small mind to understand?

Thank you for all the other supportive comments, the family appreciates it.
