$5 says, he was either drowsy, had been drinking or had medical problems.

WOW! I saw the aftermath of this man's car and he is so lucky to have survived this ordeal. I was late getting to work but prayed that all were okay and counted my blessings that I was alive and well myself. Make sure that those you love know it!

The real question why was this trucker stopped on a roadway. It is against the law to sleep on the shoulder. I hope the victim sues the trucker and is company for acting like they are above the law

Although I'm not especially a big fan of trucker drivers, there could be a multitude of reasons his rig was on the side. Pretty big jump to conclusion to say he was sleeping.

The story states the truck driver is from Indy. It is highly unlikely that a local driver is sleeping along the road in his hometown.
You're probably the guy that likes to pass me and cut me off then hit the brakes to make a right turn in front of me when I'm in my big truck.

It is the responsibility of the car driver to stay on the road and avoid any vehicle on the berm. As long as the trucker was off the road he is not at fault.

There you go, You don`t know why the truck was on the side of the road. It could had broke down. Truckers know not to sleep on the side of the road. That`s a Huge fine i mean Huge. People are so quick to SUE! or JUDGE! I`m a trucker myself. And if the trucker was in the wrong it would have been stated IDIOT!

Though I don't like to see truckers stopped on ramps or highways for extended periods of time, THIS WAS IN NO WAY THE TRUCKER'S FAULT!

The car had left the pavement before it hit the truck. If you are too sleepy or too busy talking on the phone to drive...DON'T!

Typical Carmelite. They run all around Hamilton County blowing red lights and driving like morons, but they want the big trucks banned from sharing the roads with them.

At that time of morning, was the guy very sleepy and fell asleep at the wheel, or was he at a bar all night and was on his way home and drunk?

Here is an idea, maybe the truck was broke down. The first thing that come to mind is since it was so cold last night maybe his fuel "jelled" up.

No, the real question is why did the car-that caused the accident-drive off onto the shoulder and into the grass before returning to the road to smash into the semi?

You people just don't get it. If this was a Carmel driver, then it has to be somebody else's fault!!

Those silly 4 wheelers,,, as you said not many local guys sleep on the side of the road where they live. May have been checking papers OR -- made a SAFE cell phone call -- YOU THINK -- I get so tired of the dangers the 4 wheelers do.--
