These drivers of cars in the mountains have gotten out of control . They need to realize that these semi drivers that are carrying our house hold goods are driving slowly in the mountains. So now theres another fatality and another truck driver that has to live with the death of a wreckless driver. SLOW DOWN and give these truck drivers the room that they need so that they can transport the goods that keeps this country moving . Like it or not but thats the facts . It takes our troops to keep give this country our freedom and our truck drivers to keep the shelves in the stores full....

Wonder if the driver killed himself or a passenger.
Maybe on a cell phone?
I bet you're right! These idiots on their cell phones can't even stay in their own lanes. I see it every day. In fact they've run into me with their grocery carts talking on the phone in the store. If you can't even drive a grocery cart why in the world would you endanger all of us trying to operate a 3000 lb lethal weapon.

I saw this driving past. It was heart wrenching. It made me go "Oh my god....." I immediatly knew that the passenger died, the whole half of the passenger side was completly underneath the semi.

Perhaps warning people about talking on the phone or texting while driving might save a life. We're talking to the folks that are still alive and trying to keep them that way.

"Big Rigs" need to be banished from the I-70 corridor during the traffic hours. They have caused all sorts of accidents, whether they're driving too fast (overloaded with hot brakes) or too slow from the steep inclines. They can still get our goods to where they need to be by driving that corridor at night. I go skiing regularly during the winter and see this scenario all the time. Some truck either overturns, slams on the brakes, etc... Regardless as to who's fault this horrible accident was, there's a family out there grieving this recent loss.

Oh yes because driving a rig through that corridor at night would be so much safer....

REST IN PEACE!! Please be careful out there i drive a semi daily in town and i wish i could put a video camera on my truck and trailer so people could actually see the danger that they are putting themselves and other in when they drive around semi trucks it would absolutely amaze you. just remember that space the truck has in front of em is not so you can get in front of them but to give them space to slow down and every time you see someone cut in front the space just decreased big time so if traffic comes to a sudden halt guess what? Yup you guessed it Good gracious just give em the space please! and stop tail gating like this picture shows give yourself enough room BEHIND the truck so you can see what's in FRONT of the truck! if you don't believe me just hold a peace of paper 2 inches from your face turn the lights out and try to walk around your house seems kinda off the wall right, but thats exactly what your doing when you get so close to a semi from behind like that truck probably had to stop suddenly and look at the results! Give em room Give em Room, on the sides in front and in the back, PLEASE!!!! i know the trucker will get the blame as some Dumb A## trucker but just ride with a guy or gal for a week in town and you'll see things in a different light trust me.. May God Have Mercy on her soul...

I have to agree about the cell phone use, about the carelessness, the overloaded rigs....the blame can go on and on. All of us "living" people have done stupid things that at some point MIGHT have caused an accident such as this. So being hurtful and unkind with the words anyone writes serves no purpose. The fact remains that no matter the cause of this horrific accident, my neice is in the hospital, her daughter is dead and we are not sure of her husband's condition.

Banished from I-70 what a joke you have to be kidding right? Everything in this country comes by truck even the gas you put in your car today that came by truck, the computer came by truck, your food comes by truck, even the stuff they put on trains has to get off the train and travel by truck you have got to be kidding me, next time your at the store just imagine prices going up like 300% on each item because people like you only want deliveries at night wow i bet you cut not only trucks off but change lanes like a bandit race to traffic signals blow through stop signs because nobody is watching you right

You're right sweetheart, maybe the driver turned around to speak to a passenger in the backseat or was doing some snappy lane changing at fast speeds in the Mustang.

You have it almost right... it takes our troops to control the supply of oil so that the truck drivers can keep the shelves full of a lot of crap we could live, sometimes better, without. If these trucks are making regional deliveries along I-70 I can understand them being on I-70. For me, I'll keep the wear and tear off of my truck and my nerves by taking I-80 or I-40. I-70 is the tourist route.

Ok so you people that are talkin shit here is how it is. That was my brother driving! The passenger was my sister in-law and you people don't even know the story. The sun was in there eyes so they hit the back of the truck. And Pete your pretty shallow and stupid if all your fat ass cares about is the food on the shelf. Get your fat ass of the fuckin chair and find a life! Some one close to our family just passed away and all you people can do is talk shit if you don't know the story don't say anything!
