Another dumb-ass behind the wheel of a twenty thousand pound bullet on the highway. Every time there's a crash on I-81, you can bet dollars to donuts that a truck is involved somehow.

At 20,000 pounds it must have been a small truck, the full size semi-trucks run about 80,000. Those people that have no clue or courtesy pull out in front of them all the time driving the three to five thousand pound vehicles and usually regret doing it afterwards. Who is the dumb one?

Just remember that dumb-**** is a father,husband and a decent person trying to make a living. Also what did you use or eat today. A truck driver hauled it. And no am not a truck driver. What's that saying, alligator mouth overpowering a canary brain. It suits you well.

Yeah??? Well trucking companies hire any old dork these days anyway. Theya re in such dire need. Heck trucking companies coddle these new hires all thru school. It probably had something to do with a cell phone somehow or another. Anyone who is nuts about cellphones must be eradicated!

Why do you just assume it was the truckers fault? I use to drive big rigs and the four wheelers are usually the ones that slam brakes or cut in front of a 80,000 lb rig. It can't stop on a dime. I would thik it mightbe possible that the construction there contributed to this. i wonder what the details of the crash will be. When you consider how many truck miles pass through Chambersburg everyday the rate of crashes seems to be pretty low.

Oh and BTW --- 20,000 lbs is just about the weight on one axle of a big rig. You probably drive a Prius which isn't even a real car anyway. what does it weigh maybe 1500 lbs. Think about that the next time you cut a big rig off.

Most truckers suck. Especially the double FedEx ones. They use their size and weight as muscle on the highway which is anything but safe. I exhibit just a little tolerance and patiance. Don't pace, pass others or pull right, use indicators, most of all be cool and keep a safe distance.
I will agree that many cars are just as bad. Seems people do 100 on the highway and 70 on side streets anymore. I can't seem to drive half a mile without some bozo tailgating and I speed just about all the time. How fast do things need to move?
Conclusion: You are all Dumb-****ers. Without a doubt.

"66-67 mph" is speeding Mr.Professional CDL trucker. By the way, this accident was in a 55 mph zone. Well marked, single lane so no Prius was able to cut off the dumb frick trucker. He was probably texting, eating, napping or popping his next batch of speed.

By the way, the law in PA states "Slower traffic move right. Left lane is for passing, not loafing. If your truck cannot go faster than "66-67 mph" stay in the right lane where you belong Mr. Professional.
