Until facts to the contrary, they should file vehicular homicide, neglegent homicide or other similiar charges againt Mr Brooks. I also hope the driver of the truck can wrap his mind around the fact that it was not his fault

they need to find out fact before anyone says someone should be charged. need to know why mr. brooks turned in front of dump truck. check alochol, drugs what every is needed before someone is charged. you know accidents happen and it is no one folt. mr. brooks will have enough knowing the lady died and he was driving.

I'm with Sherill, ALL three Families involved need to be remembered in Prayer. As far as CHARGING Someone, I don't know anyone involved but I Feel Sure, Mr Brooks did NOT Intentionally pull out in the path of the truck !!! He, himself was Seriously Injured! Let's forget about the Blame Game right now and PRAY for them ALL !!!

To ken of Rockville MD who died and made you the truck driving king. I myself are terrified of big trucks and understand that they need more time to slow down and stop. But if some truck drivers would actually do the speed limit some accidents could be avoided all together. I mam not saying they all speed I amsaying I have just about benn blowed off the roads by these larger trucks. And god bless the familys of these people and may god be with the ones that have survived. And both men will feel responsible but hey accidents happen you just have live and forgive.

Ken..... Well most of the truck drivers not all tink they own the road!!!! If you are doing the speed limit they will run upon you and blare the horn wanting to go faster. I have seen many truck drivers run redlights, stop signs, and disobey the law. Why cause they drive a big truck do they think they are better than everyone else.

I knew the families that were in the car and I pray for them as well the truck driver for it will have to be something that he has to live with like Mr. Brooks for the rest of their lives.
well

How terrible. They should restrict all big trucks and the businesses they must cater to to interstate highways.

RIP

Agree. They get in front of you and drive the speed limit and it is just like riding behind a billboard.
