This is so frucking unbelievable...

Frucking unlicensed driver and frucking unregistered and uninspected truck trailer

WTF? How does this frucking shite happen? If the driver of the car lives, he needs to be put in jail for 1 year minimum.

The truck driver needs at least 1 year in jail - it is his sole responsibility to make sure his truck is completely legal before he drives - after all, he is a professionial, commercial truck driver.

And the truck company needs to be fined at least $1 million dollars - no questions.

This frucking shite has got to stop. SCPD start enforcing the laws aggresively. Judges, start throwing people into jail for these violations - as well as tailgating, speeding and reckless driving.

I'm sick and tired of being nearly run over on the highways and roads everyday.

Two people dead for something completely avoidable

Sickens me!

I hate you all - you fat frucken pimply faced drivers!

It was raining lightly this morning and most drivers "in the know", unlike those who drive with their head firmly planted up their #ss, are familiar with the fact that light rain, unlike pouring rain, does not wash away the oil that rises up to and floats on the surface of the road making the road EXTRA slippery which requires EXTRA caution when driving on them.
100% correct about light rain and roadway oil!

By why are you wasting your time sharing this info - 99% of people on Long Island are complete chimps and fat and stupid. They don't know basic skills and knowledge. They hate themselves and overeat and crash their cars - because driving 75 or 80 mph get them to their destination 5 minutes earlier - or they are too stupid and sluglike to actually plan their day and leave early to be prompt!

I hate them all! Monkies and chimps and blimps and Uggos!

Neither one of them should have been on the road. Nice price to pay.

Yes but I think his point was that you don't have to be driving fast to get into a car accident. Most people jump to the conclusion that speed was a factor, without knowing the details of what happened.
The fact is the driver lost control of the car, crashed and killed 2 of his passengers. Thus, the driver was driving too fast for the road conditions. End of story. If he wasn't driving too fast for the conditions, the accident wouldn't have happened.

Would you say the same if you beleived the victims to have been white? Come on, be honest now. You're hiding behind your keyboard like a P U S S Y so it's ok.
Nope, at this point, I feel that all reckless drivers (no matter what race they might be), deserve whatever they get. Every time I turn on the news, or log into this site, I see another story about idiots that shouldn't be on the road risking the lives of innocent people. So you can stop with the racist crap, until they declare bad driving a race.

A few posts mentioned light rain, unlike pouring rain, does not wash away the oil that rises up to and floats on the surface of the road making the road EXTRA slippery which requires EXTRA caution when driving on them. While that's true, it still is a fact the road is more slippery when it FIRST STARTS to rain. The initial mix of oil on road surface and water makes it the most dangerous time. So when it starts to rain..SLOW DOWN!

Yes, the initial start of rain is when the roads are slickest. But in a steady downpour, the oil quickly washes away. Unlike a drizzling rain where the oil and grease lay in wait for that unsuspecting driver.

Also, intersections with traffic lights are most dangerous during this time as well. More oil and grease collects as cars and trucks sit at the lights which is why it is sometimes better, depending on your distance from the light and your speed, to lay on the horn and go through if a light breaks on you rather than try to stop.

Trying to stop might find you in an uncontrollable skid going through the intersection anyway where you'll be looking all stupid sitting there with your car turned sideways while everyone around you shakes their head wondering, "what were they thinking?"

I'm sure the driver of the car will just get a slap on the wrist.
