    Looks like the C&C truck was broken down as it’s sitting on the shoulder of the road and the service truck in the back ground and it appears that the car left the travel lane and hit the truck on the shoulder.

    @LocalDriver…. I’m definitely not saying it is the truckers fault but I’ve been driving from pace every day and almost every time I drive past 5 points I get cut off by a dump truck knowing they have nowhere near the time or space to pull into the roadway on top of drastically reduced acceleration speed but I have also seen drivers like in the car either on the phone texting or talking or just being plain out stupid and cut the truckers off or try to pass but it is unfortunate that this wreck took place!

    Hitting a dump truck is like hitting an immovable object there is a lot of mass. If the object hitting it is much smaller like the case here they take the brunt of the damage. Hope they all well but that was a hard hit.

    that dump truck would be hard to see

    Let’s see how this can be the truck drivers fault this time. It seems as though the masses always want to blame truck drivers. I would dare to guess the person in the car was distracted by something since it looks like the car hit the truck
