Well what do you expect with the 10% of drivers on the road with CDL a license that donot know how to drive

Where can I pick up one of the corvettes ?

The story doesn’t match the picture. It looks to me like the red truck hauling the Corvettes hit the back of a van trailer.

👀 a bilnd man could see the red Volvo hit the car hauler, ran up in between the top and bottom section with the cab of the Volvo cut from the bottom.

You have to look at it again the red truck is wedged in the back of the car hauler.When I look at it picture the numbers on the door are facing towards the back and it had me confused until I saw the front of the truck up in the back of the trailer.Be safe out there drivers.

The picture is fine. I had no problem seeing the red truck run in the back of the car hauler. I believe this is a good example that trucks do not need speed control that makes them much slower than the rest of the traffic. I hate it takes people loosing their lives because of the stupid people who put speed restrictions on trucks. I think it could work if they had enough brains to at set the speed up to close to the average speed on the interstate these days and we all know it dam sure is a not 65mph
