I bet the guy was either texting, drinking or jerking off and got distracted. CASA will now have to pay up MILLIONS

that's because they got rid of all the good drivers to keep crappy ones. new transportation manager a jerk, and they get what they pay for. only 3 drivers left out of the 17 they had a couple years ago. the smart ones left when the getting out was good. that business has gone sooooo downhill since this guy took over. unhappy customers cuz he changed delivery dates and times, he had guys delivering in two places right across the street from each other...idiot and he cost them big bucks using roadnet instead of his brain. don't feel sorry for them. they allowed this idiot to continue making bad decisions. who was the driver, any name released yet?

If you want good drivers, then you have to pay a higher wage. This company paid poor wages and got poor drivers while they lined their own pockets. What goes around comes around. It's too bad it had to be at the expense of 2 human beings losing their lives.

Casa has hundreds of millions to give to the families. Make sure that the lawyers sue for way high. The owners will pay out millions and give the company to the family when all is done.

The kid is from Rome...only 26 yrs old. How long do you think he's been a tractor trailor driver? Not long enough to accumulate enough miles of experience, and too young to be a responsible driver. Sad.....but my pity isn't for him. It's for the victims and their families and now I think i agree with previous posts...texting. His age is a huge clue. No skid marks says he didn't see the cars stopped in front of him. WTG Casa....take the experienced drivers who were there for years and put in some new young ones to save a few bucks....

hey...this guy wasn't texting. He prolly fell asleep!!! The drivers are on the roads for hours with little sleep and aren't paid by the hour so Casa keeps them out there a long time and the drivers learn how to fudge the books

The bigshot wopslop Casamentos are some of the greediest people you've ever mistaken for generous in your life. The average reader has no idea how petty and cheap they are as an employer it's one of utica's biggest sins behind what working at Northern Safety does to people. More utica image pigs that wouldn't be seen in their employee's homes.

Most trailer drivers are told not to freak and lock up the breaks, and jack knife and kill a lot of people instead of just the idiot in front.

Here is some real reporting,

Trailer crashed into and ran over their car, causing it to burst into flames.The tractor trailer then reportedly struck the vehicle, causing it to flip three times upon impact and strike a third vehicle - a pickup truck. The Kia then burst into flames upon hitting the pickup truck.

Hey WKTV, pick a story you retards.
