OK, this isn't details, what caused him to cross into the opposing lane? My sympathy goes out to the families.

Just an FYI...the FD removed the roof from the car, it was not sheered off during the accident as the article and other articles have hinted.

So what CAUSED him to veer into the other lane? Apparent family members were on a previous post stating he was texting, then that he "fell asleep". Which was it, if either?

The only person who knows the answer to this question died as a result of the accident. Seriously, no one needs to know more than what was written in the article.

Others know.... was he "tired" when he left the house, was he driving for 10 hours, was he awake for 38 hours straight, or did a couple family members or friends receive text messages around 5:45-5:50pm? Seconds before the crash? People on the scene said there were PILLS all over the seat/floor?
If you were the driver of the truck or motorcycle wouldn't you want to know why?

The fact of the matter is that this young man is now DEAD nomatter what the cause and thankfully noone else was killed...it may be for the other drivers involved and their families to know but NOT for all of the readers. Just pray for ALL families involved as this has got to be a terrible tragic time for them

I would want to know. But before jumping to conclusions, toxicology tests should be run and cell phone records pulled. With more and more "text and cell phone" related accidents occuring, I think it should be standard operating procedure, to pull records after an accident. I would hope this would bring more awareness of how dangerous it is.....Not only to the driver, but to the others on the road as well. Of course, the sad thing is, that it still will not stop these careless folks that do this on a daily basis. Bottom line, the roads are VERY unsafe place, filled with irresponsible people. Please everyone, be careful. Regardless of the reason behind the accident, my prayers to the family for their loss.

It is horrible that this man lost his life. But thank goodness he didn't take anyone with him. C'mon people wake the hell up and keep your eyes on the road and be aware. And yes it is important to know why he crossed the center line, whether it was a medical or texting reason. I had a friend who had just passed through that area before it happened! This is how statistics are made!

If someone crosses in to the lane of any of my loved ones and kills them. They better hope they die also, because I will see to it that they no longer will be amongst the breathing...I don't care if it isn't illegal to text or for that matter punching in a phone number, either way you take your eyes off the road to do it!

Sure lets talk to some imaginary sky fairy and all will be better. It would be better to spend your time educating others about the dangers of driving while impaired or using a phone, or eating, or aything else that takes your eyes off the road for even a second.

I do not know what caused the accident but I can guarantee it was not your "god". Something happened and now this guy is dead, use this as a tool to prevent it from happening again.

You're a real class act. Do you see anything about GOD anywhere in the post? People like you make me sick. Instead of talking about the " imaginary sky fairy" let's talk about dumbass people like yourself. It will be a short conversation. Nothing interesting there.

You start to make an interesting point but then end with threatening to kill someone. Face it, you don't have the stones to kill someone. Never did and never will. This is supposed to be a somewhat civilized society. We don't murder in revenge.

You also don't want to be in the same class as the idiot two posts above. It would post something ridiculous like that.

That little ache you feel in your abdomen is a growing cancer. You won't be around much longer. Remember the things you've said and written. When you take your last breath the real suffering will begin. It was your choice.
