Where were the parents? The guy must have been either black, mexican or chinese. Probably poor as well.. and on welfare too. If he was Mexican then you KNOW he was illegal. More than likely he didn't have insurance or a drivers license. Serves him right for being on the road that early.
What do you mean where were the parents you idiot...he is a 36yr. old man. Where the hell are parents, maybe they should teach you some respect.

Grab a hold of your jock strap and calm down. Until you know what I was referring to don't say anything.

no, the real question is why 465 was closed for three hours after that. did the Eagle Summit push the semi by 90 degrees so it would block the roadway?
tricky..
First of all, the article stated that the driver was flown to Methodist Hospital. The Lifeline helicopter would have landed on 465 thus closing all lanes to do so. Secondly, how much destruction of the Eagle Summit was all over the roadway and had to be cleaned as well as the police investigation.

There is a thing called humor, and if you frequent these forums you'll see that 80% of the stories will have an individual posting "Where were the parents" regardless of the story. Sorry if this man was a friend (RIP).
I'M NOT DEAD YET! Though my bedrest was quite pleasant. I shall be quite pleased to get back to the grind once I am fully healed. I shall fully enjoy downing a pint with my mates at the pub in a week's time. CHEERS!

You are 1 sick human Mr. "Trueblood" from Illinois, you must have been one of the real Kyle's so called friends from college. Grow up and in the meantime, get a heart. Do you have kids? Apparently not.

we were caught in the traffic from this accident for over 2 hours. At least 20 emergency vehicles passed us. We thought it was may more than what is written here. If this was all this accident was then why was the traffic held up for so long? Why so many emergency vehicles?
The reason for the long time of shutting the traffic down was because of the manner in which this accident had to be mitigated. Each apparatus on the scene that morning had a job to do, and all had to be done precisely in order to manipulate the twisted metal from around this mans body. THe reason the opposite lanes was shut down was due to the helicopter landing and lifting.

All of these same precautions will be taken everytime especially on the interstate. This is to ensure complete safety of such an intense opperation. Wouldnt you want this same attention and proffesionalism if it was you or your?

Plus all the cool blinking - flashing strobe light look pretty cool going down the road and on the site.
I will be honest some of the accident scenes get pretty well strung out on getting traffic rolling again. In other states getting traffic rolling is becoming an important issue as of late. After all we have lives to live.

Now who is the idiot here? I make a joke, everyone laughs but you. You seem to be personally offended by my joke. Did you read past the first sentence? Probably not, people like you rarely do. How about you reread my comment, chuckle and move on? Pull that stick out of your rear-end (if you can remember which end it is) and laugh... or fart... depending on which pole you pull out of which hole
Duh

Hey, I'm the first one to laugh at a good joke.(Notice I said "good") But, to me, a man getting into a serious accident is not good material for a joke. Maybe you should find something constructive to do, like say, help children who have lost their parents.

I know the driver, he most likely was drunk. Don't belame the truck driver Kyle had it coming to him.

I heard from a reliable source that alcohol was NOT involved, and the driver had a health issue.

1. No, he was not drunk..0 blood alcohol.
2. No one has something that awful "coming to
them".
3. Belame is not a word. Buy yourself a
dictionary.

the truck driver saw this car driving erratically on the highway and decided to pull over on the side of the road to call 911 when the car crashed into and under the rear of his trailer. it's unfortunate that people are so quick to judge without knowing the details.
All I remember was seeing the trucker's end lights as I went unconcious and steering towards them. I thought he was moving and he would slow me down lowering the impact of hitting something stationary Then I was out. The truck driver in my opinion saved my life, by absorbing the impact. My blood sugar spiked.... God Bless all involved and sorry for any inconvienience
