eric dubach is a sad case, for it is people like him that makes the industry look bad. But here at Arrow trucking company it is the injured workers that suffer, because arrow trucking co. takes so much from them, like there bonus money and vacation money for benefits they don't use because they are on workers comp and uses it to cover lawsuits or just pocket the money for themselves.

it is people like him that really get under my skin. because of what he did, now the trucking companies drivers are going to be looked at more closely by regular drivers and residents. it is a major embarrassment to us at arrow and especially for the arrow drivers. i am an arrow driver and i am sickened with what he did. but i would hope that people will not look at arrow with disgust, this is the trucking industry and arrow is a good company but idiots like this make it look bad.. thank you

I was a 15 year arrow employee and after working local for a couple of years I came to realize that more than 50% of arrow drivers are just like this bozo.I blame the trucking schools training program of today and recruiters lies to fill seats at all trucking companys for what the industry is putting behind the wheel today.The regulations are barking up the wrong trees and the companys are to tight with there money and the reality of being a truck driver is not realized until they are behind the wheel and they see there pay checks.This is why the industry is flooded with the 3 month driver and high turn over. I moved on and everyone that can will too.

You get what you pay for cheap wages and illegal aliens. Keep bitching abouty unions and keep working for nothing.

Drug addiction is a disease. Many times, once succumbed to this illness, a person is unable to fight the addiction alone. Although, I do not condone his actions. I also know what a good person he once was.

That "bozo" came from a good family and small town roots. Just leave it alone. His family has suffered enough and with addiction comes its own suffering. Just let this family grieve and the internet horror stories die out.
