They can tell. Most of new model trucks have black boxes in them. They will be able to tell everything.

I saw a report that said this particular truck had a 'red box,' but it may have just looked that way from all the blood.

Without workers in the transportation industry your grocery stores would run out of stock of everything within 48 and your fuel stations may last an even shorter amount of time. That is nothing to speak of your restaurants, doctors offices, hospitals. I see it as a real job.

Anytime a truck wrecks like this the driver is automatically taken by the DOT and drug tested.

I think it's a crime that people are so quick to judge. To the person that thinks driving a truck is not a real job maybe you should try it someday then form an opinion. This was an accident and that means that in no way did this driver set out at the beginning of his day to take the lives of tese two little ones. Try thinking of how you would feel if you were that driver. Come on people let this family grieve in peace and these children rest in peace. If there are any charges that need to be made let the proper authorities do it.

@ Saddened dont feel abit sorry for the driver of the truck, he was driving wreckless. So every nightmare every sleepness night he deserves. He took the lives of two innocent little boys. So now live with it.

Come on now how many times have any of you saw a big truck cut off you or someone around you or ran a car or motorcycle into the median and not even bat a eye. They get on there cb radios amd laugh about it. If the dot and the cops were doing the right thing they would pull them over when they pull that shit instead of worrying about a car going than 5 miles over the speed limit. Most cops proably can't read a manafest to know if they are leagle

Yanno I find it a tad bit pathetic that all of you are judging whether or not it was the truck drivers or not....and saying a truck driving job isn't a rough job? I'd like to see u get off of ur ass and go drive a water truck or a dump truck and get beat around on some of the locations they go on....maybe u need to get in one and drive it for a few days and find out what shits like...truck drivers especially water truck and dump truck drivers risk their lives every day driving on locations....for instance have u seem the HUGE hills that r straight up and down that they have to be pulled up by d5's and d10's for those who DONTknow what that is its a dozer....you never know when that cable is gunna break or anything or if the dozer loses traction and rolls...YOU DONT KNOW THEIR LIFE...don't be judging until u try it....I've been in rock trucks and everything...don't knock it till you try it urself! Prayers to the truck driver and the woman and her family.... May god rest those poor babies souls....<3

You're right, I could never be a truck driver. I get an upset stomach on amusement park rides, so I can't imagine how I'd feel in a truck spinning out of control and rolling over everything in its path.

Some are well trained and professional but others are just heart beats with a CDL. Who do you want to be working in your area?

Good for you! You quit truck driving so you could help kids, instead of staying on the road and hurting them.

Hope your not teaching english,spelling,punctuation,w riting,grammer or the like. From your post it seems unlikely you are, in fact, a teacher. If it is the result of a college education you should have saved the tuition
and kept on trucking.
