    Holy {expletive}. I think this should be moved to the "Worst Accident You've Ever Seen" thread !

    I saw this on our local news and was just floored. I feel so sad for the family but at the same time thankful (and amazed) that it was not much worse. They say he had been going the wrong way for 20 full minutes. I just do not understand how there were not victims strewn for miles.

    From what our local news media reported, the family said the driver was diabetic and they believe that he may have blacked out. The driver did die in the accident.

    Tired maybe fed up with high fuel prices or the life of trucking,
    No body specifically a trucker wouldnt know they were going the wrong way on an interstate.
    most likely did it on purpose or as the result of fatigue drugs etcc

    I live in edmonton and the tox results said it has nothing to do with being diabetic at that time, also when he was driving down the wrong side he seemed to be going after the cars going the other way, personally i think he had a death wish.
