Another driver who failed to do their job correctly. Not the fault of anything other then the driver.
Have you ever tried sleeping in a team operation ? I think this might be the case. I did it once. Will never do it again lol. He still should have pulled over and slept. The Load isn’t that important.
Yes, I drove teams for 3 years and neither one of us fell asleep at the wheel. If you’re tired, fatigued or just feeling some kind of way, pull over and go to sleep.
