Valium is not a recreational drug that gets you "high" unless you take massive doses. It is an anti-anxiety medication which does not render you "impaired" or incapable of making decisions. This is also a man who pulled the kids out of the bus. This was a terrible "accident". I am sure that the driver of the truck has had his own nightmares from what he saw.

He was not "unlicensed" as the news is reporting. This was a man who has been a professional driver for over 25 years and has a clean driving license. There are also no warning signs leading up to the bridge, until you get directly in front of it. Residents say that accidents with trucks happen all the time in this location. This is an unfortunate accident.

My prayers go out to everyone involved. This was a horrific accident.
