I hope Pedro Sanchez was not an illegal alien. It would be even sadder for his family in that case to know now that he could have been safe and happy in his own country (if it were some place other than the U.S.).

Somehow I just knew someone would turn this tragedy into a political statement because of the poor guy's name. Nice work.

Way to show some class, Thomas. That is an awful ending to a life, no matter where Mr. Sanchez called home.

Exactly. I would hope you would share my concern for the plight of illegals that are injured or killed in this country. Too many people feel sad about it for only a few seconds and then move on. Our country should do more to prevent such senseless tragedies, whether they be on the highways or in the desert. We have a duty to our fellow man to prevent them from taking actions that put themselves in danger. Having a safe, happy, and fulfilling life at home is much more important that coming to America to make a few extra bucks.

Never believe the guano about "truckers being good drivers". Far too many are dangerous stooges and cowboys.
