Were these folks from St. Patrick's Church and school in South Middleton Twp. Carlisle? My prayers are with them all! I suspect the driver had a heart attack as the scenerio sounds so familiar. My hear goes out to his family as well and my prayers!

Clabaugh fit the stereotypical image of a police officer, Whitson said. He stood like a statue, in well-shined boots.

and what does that mean?

How hard is it to figure out strong, respectful, brave and neat, sharp, orderly...need I go on?

Don't tell me you want to start the police officer bashing?

This is simply awful . Not only have we lost a friend, family member and and neighbor, this hopefully will not give Wolfe's tours a black eye. Mr. Claybaugh was not only a great cop, but also a professional driver. That strip of roadway on I-270 is designed wrong. It suffers a reversed banking going into and off of that 500 foot high skyway. An accident like this was in the making for over 4 years. I wonder if the high winds were also a factor--since WBAL investigated 3 other accidents involving Box Trucks in Annapolis, that just fell over-- not an hour after this accident and many others were injured.

Joe Clabaugh was only 66. He was not an invalid. He was an outstanding police officer for the Borough of Hanover. He logged over a million miles without incident while working for Wolfe. How dare you questions his ability to work or drive.

Go shove your nasty comments up your a__

I have heard nothing but Good Comments about Mr Clabaugh. Whether in his job as a police officer or driving for Wolf's, this man obviously had the respect of all he came in contact with.

May his family, friends, and community remember all the good times and memories. He was cut down too early in life, that is for sure.

As for the adverse comments posted by some
"small minded writers" -- I would say Hanover was lucky to have such a fine example, as he sounds like a man who gave the public the respect they deserved while performing his duties for the community. That type of police officer is hard to find - but exactly what people in that field should be.

Godspeed, Joe Clabaugh

... and praying for the full recovery of all those injuried. Obviously there was a guardian angel looking out for them that day, as this accident could have been far worse.
