It had nothing to do with any drugs whatsoever. Don't jump to conclusions.

The dark side just took over the big rig and it went bonkers on it's own. What part of that don't you people understand? How dare you think the driver had anything to do with this tragedy which cost the lives of two innocent people? Just because he is an former burglar, car thief, domestic violence predator and substance abuser who apparently gives false statements (regarding choking & blacking out) to police you are questioning his credibility? And you think a family member in Fresno just might have their own agenda in defending this clown here on Topix? Well shame on you non-believers?

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if additional charges are forthcoming after an investigation by the CHP and the results of certain mandatory tests are revealed. Can you say "trying to cover our asses by changing our story" in preparation for the inevitable wrongful death lawsuits and possible criminal charges coming up. "I really wasn't chocking on food I was eating instead of concentrating on driving you know....uh it was just that SUV that cut me off...yeah that was it!" That old story worked with a lot of other truck drivers who have caused mass carnage, maybe it will work here again! Yup it's only speculation but I think there is more to this story than meets the eye. Only time will tell!

Agreed, we just got to find that one armed driver (the fugitive). Maybe around Davis it was a Prius.

He was eating a French fry. He forgot he was allergic to potatoes and began to cough violently. The allergy forced his body into anaphylactic shock causing his throat to close. He briefly lost consciousness, then regained consciousness, the adrenaline from the accident served as an antidote to anaphylactic shock and his airway was reopened.... I stand by my first statement that it is easier for a person to deal with the heinous nature of negligence by minimizing their role. He may not be intentionally lying, maybe he just can't deal with truth.
