    CDL drivers are considered trained professionals and under the law, are responsible for ensuring that they drive safely which includes adequate sleep.

    This is inexplicable, how can this happen? Aren't those Walmart drivers tracked per DOT regulations? If they are, why didn't his dispatcher tell him he needed time off?

    This accident should never have happened IMO.
    No the accident should not have happened. I do not know the drivers experience but i do know this HE KNEW BETTER it is taught to get plenty of rest in this industry. Well he was african american and as we are starting to see they think they are above the laws of this country now.

    Yup trucking is a tough job. hardest part is all the morons in four wheelers that have no clue how to drive! Texting and driving at over 70 is rampant the most dangerous things on the roads are four wheelers that think they can drive.

    You sir are correct, we are not considered professionals we are professionals. This Guy WILL go to prison and he deserves it he knew better I assure you.

    As for me I do think that most four wheelers need to have a more intensive driver training as truckers do. Accidents would be cut in halve in this country.

    The driver was under hours on his logbook, but he was speeding.

    Thanks for the update on this story, after all the noise in the media about this guy working too many hours and falling a sleep can not be taken back. I doubt if we'll hear much of an update reported on any major networks.
