    Story sounds a little fishy, you behind the suv, second truck through the light. Just don’t make sense. Glad everyone is okay though.

    I’ve never saw a truck run that light but I can’t count the number of cars that have ran it even if they have use the turn lane ,but just for you other idiots I was behind the SUV and watched him run the light and hit that chip trailer just behind the rear axle and also just so as you know that was the second truck that came across

    “trucks coming out of the paper mill run that red light”

    I haven’t seen it, but I only pass through twice a day most days. They may do it when I’m not there, so that could be the reason.

    It would be wrong of me to accuse based on speculation. I’ll let the experts investigate and determine the facts if possible.

    David for truth

    I have seen numerous trucks coming out of the paper mill run that red light and not wait because its a long wait.
