Just a reminder to stay safe out there. My codriver and I were involved in a crash this morning on I40 in California. We were rear ended by another semi when traffic came to a stop. The other semi never slowed down and plowed in to us at full speed. There were no major injuries, thankfully and surprisingly! We are currently stranded at a gas station out here waiting for our company to arrange a ride to the nearest town. My best guess is the other driver was distracted or fatigued and never saw us stop. Stay alert, stay alive.

I seen a over turned truck in the ditch while in my way to Joplin Missouri, it was on I-39 I believe. I was going to stop, but there was already 3 cars so decided to keep going. Shortly after I seen an ambulance and police go by.

Whenever I see traffic coming to a sudden stop in front of me I hit the four way flashers to try to alert those behind me. I just got a new truck and I have all these computer devices that literally take things out of my hands and automatically slow the truck they don't have the Kinks worked out of them a hundred percent yet... Vehicles will be out of my Lane and in the right exit Lane and it will still cause my Truck 2 drastically slow down and I am a good 2 seconds plus behind them. This was addressed on some of the other threads. It's like a ghost is in charge...
