If you roll a truck over ,you are doing something wrong. Weather it is speeding, wreck less driving or whatever . If you make a mistake that causes your rig to roll over ,you messed up. I'm glad no one was hurt including the driver. Maybe at his next driving job he will think a little more about what can happen when ya aren't driving like a professional. And don't jump on me ,I'm a former truck driver with 21 accident free yrs behind the wheel. I'm merely saying , if you roll a truck over ,you've done something wrong .

So nothing mechanical can go wrong that can cause an accident?

21 years? I call that lucky or maybe you didn't run hard. Sometimes you need to push the envelope to make money to feed a family. If you're so good why stop driving? Quit putting down an o/o!! I guess you're a "super trucker"!!

On the positive side he didn't wipe out any of the green and white political signs that are every 50 yards along RT 120 to Sinnemahoning.

I have to say thank you glorious truck driver of 21 years. Maybe we can get you an award for your excellence in truck driving. You're truly an unsung hero. Way to "toot" your own horn. No pun intended.

You all sound like idiots haha. Not all truckers run to hard but almost. Should have a speed limiter for some of these dumb××× truckers

Why do u think drivers are idiots? We are away from our families so store shelves are full or you have gas for your vehicle. Drivers don't work 8 hours a day 5 days a week!!

Kind of like .If you crash an airplane you're doing something wrong.Weather its flying too fast or too slow, whatever. If you make a mistake that causes your plane to fall out of the sky and crash, you've messed up. I'm glad no one was hurt including the pilot. Maybe at his next flying job he will think a little more about what can happen when you aren't flying like a professional. And don't jump on me, I;m a former airline and military pilot with 21 accident free years behind the stick. I'm just saying if you crash your airplane you've done something wrong....
Now, tell that to the pilot who was flying the Concord when it crashed killing everyone on board because it hit debris on the runway during takeoff, or the Challenger Astronauts. Nuff Sed

I hope when you are out there pushing the envelope to feed your family that in the process of doing that you don't kill someone else's family ! Maybe you don't have the right job if you have to be dangerous on our highways to make a living. My point was look ahead , be prepared for what you are driving into and you will be running slow enough that ya don't roll your truck over even if there is a mechanical issue . I'm no super trucker !I apologise for sounding so harsh , I wasnt running the driver down , I never made tons of cash ,but I made a sufficient income, but I will tell you that I never kept another driver or a family from going home at the end of the day and I went home to my family when my job was done . And I did that because I prided myself on doing it the right way.Dispatchers or load coordinates don't care what happens to you, they just want their company to make money.And they push you as hard as they can. You make the decision to put yourself and others in jeopardy. I got injured ,had 4 surgeries,tons of rehab and now am disabled ,I can't pass the DOT physical because doctors giving DOT physicals say I can't do the physical requirements of the job. It kills me that I can't jump in my truck and go to work ,so please save the "why ain't ya driving"insults. I also lost a brother and sister in law who were sitting 3 feet off the interstate broke down and waiting for a tow truck on the side of I 65 and was slammed in the side of the trailer and then into the driver side of the tractor by a driver who wasn't in control of his truck. He wasn't prepared and he wasnt in control of his rig and hit my friend at 70 mph in his o/o rig. He went home after a week in the hospital but my brother n his wife died instantly due to the explosion!!!!They never knew what hit them .I wasn't being hateful, I was trying to tell folks to pay attention because your loved ones want you to come home ! So get on me all ya want to, I can take it . Just don't let your loved ones down . Be safe out there . God Bless The American Trucker.

"Mr. Experience", I understand your stance and concern. But just don't blame the guy in the report for wrecking his truck, there may have been reasons, circumstances and such that we don't know about. He may have done nothing wrong at all. Maybe he is new and just screwed-up and learning. I did that once when I was learning to ride my bicycle .

Or maybe where his tires left the road is a spot where there is constantly mud slides and when his tires hit the very soft dirt his passenger side sunk immediately and rolled

Thank God that no one was hurt or killed. All of the other things are just material & can be replaced.
Sure that JB Hunt, Swift, & others have had their share of accidents too.
This is why they call them ACCIDENTS. It's not like you wake up in the morning. Say to yourself "I think that I'll go out today. Take my 80 thousand or whatever pound vehicle & kill myself or someone else."
Thank you!!! To all of you BIG RIG DRIVERS out there!! Thank you to your family's that don't get to see you every night. God Bless you all & Drive safe & Keep them 18 wheels rolling!!
