Coming back up from Atlanta today I encountered a bad wreck involving 4 semi trucks in Commerce GA. Traffic was slowing for lane closure and road construction. Truck 1 in left lane was slowing. Truck 2 in right lane stopped. Truck 3 slammed into the back of truck 2 and into the side of truck 1. Truck 4 slammed on brakes and hit the left shoulder guard rails and median hard to avoid truck 1, 2, and 3. Heard on the CB radio from a guy at the time it happened, driver of number 3 was playing with his phone and it cost him his life. Driver 4 was also distracted with his phone. This is a very dangerous profession, take every measure you can to ensure your safety while driving. Stop reaching for stuff. Stop playing with electronics. Just drive defensively and use those mirrors, because your life does depend on it.
