one truck blew a front tire and was trying to get off the interstate at 1am. The second truck came around turn saw him too late swung into left lane but still hit trailers blocking both lanes, third truck ran into both of them bursting into flames killing third driver. That is according to a driver I talked to who knew the guy who got killed.

Well it sounds like 2 of them were travelling too close to the other one. Doesn't it?

That is called tailgating and that is not allowed in PA.

If the first vehicle was a car, they'd probably be dead also.

That means that 2 trucks were not obeying the law.

Yet I did not see any anger calling for them to be charged, even when a fellow trucker is killed.

Why not?

They must have not paid attention tot the part in class on tailgating.

Plowing into the rear of antoher truck would not constitute an accident as "unavoidable". "hence the part of being incontrol of your rig at all times"

long way 2go....what the hell is your problem??? Someone died and it WAS an accident. Are you trying to insinuate that it was his wish to go out and crash into another truck and die? I think not. Don't be so ignorant, uncompassionate and rude.

You two are about the most ignorant and worthless pieces of shit out there. You post but have no facts.'I heard he was drunk', I ask what dispatch? I could say, I heard over dispatch you got caught sucking some guy off in your rig. Would that make it true or even worth posting on a message board? No it wouldn't.

Long Way to 2Go. You know nothing to this. You didn't even know the battery and alternator were burned out on impact from truck 1 and 2 therefore knocking out all lighting on the second truck and with the second truck in the middle of the road its mere mass blocked out the first truck, so the third truck crested a hill and smashed into the immobile and blackened out second truck. It was what you would call unavoidable. I know this because I read the police report and witness statements.

To refer that his son is white trash is rather disparaging. I would actually like his son to meet you one day. I can say with most certainly you would not like that meeting. So careful what you post. Some things are inevitable.

Ed Atwood was my father. He was killed that night and left behind 5 kids and 3 grandchildren. To say that he was drunk or reckless is not only hateful and untrue but it also rips the hearts out of those who loved him. Why didnt the first truck pull over when he got a flat tire? We are still trying to find out what really happened that night and it would be appreciated if unless you were there that you dont speculate or spread rumors just to have something to say. We are all so hurt and greiving this loss. To All Knowing: Did you know my father? I would like to thank you for defending him.

To Long way 2go: I cant imagine who or what raised you. My brother and the rest of his family lost our father in what can only be described as a nightmare. How you can go online and attempt to fight with a victim is beyond belief. Why dont you fink another hobby and let our family grieve in peace?

long way 2 go.....what a fitting name for you. you've got a long way to go to being considered human being. You're a heartless worthless piece of sh*t. Karma WILL come back and bite you when you least expect it.

Ed and Sandy...my heart goes out to you and your family. Nobody deserves to have their father go the way he did. He will be missed.
