Tracey, owner-operator means you work for a trucking company but own your own rig.

It's was a horrible accident. My heart goes out to the families. The news did a cover story on thisRead More stretch of highway. It showed 172 accident 6 deaths and 58 injuries. The state needs to take a look into that. I do feel his bail is excessive. Let alone made him out to look like a murderer who intentionally did this. I guarantee he wishes it was him rather than to take 4 lives. I think there are many occupations that don't require log books yet these people have been up for 24 hrs + and they get behind the wheel. Yes he should be held responsible but There are people committing horrific crimes that don't get that kind of bail. I know when something horrible happens they want to throw the book at that person. Unfortunately nothing will change the outcome. A perfect example is cell phones. Many deaths have resulted from people causing accidents while on the phone. It's against the law to use them when driving but I see it every day. I will say people are responsible for there actions and there the only ones to blame. Don't put the blame on the state police. That's not on them. I feel for them and everyone on that scene because no doubt it was a horrific accident scene

Truck traffic on 55 is insane, its getting way out of control and just today there were 11 trailersRead More with 9 of them going 3x3. Its like driving on the same tracks as a locomotive train.

Truth, the driver of that tractor trailer rig has only so far been charged with log bookRead More falsification. I had posted earlier that if what is alleged comes out to be fact, that guy needs to get a minimum of 25 years in the penitentiary. Well, I just heard on the six o'clock news that he is likely to be charged soon with vehicular homicide, which carries a maximum sentence of 28 years.
EAGLEYE July 22, 2014 at 10:22 pm
Ex-Jolietian, obviously the troopers cannot hammer them all, but they can and will crackdown on theRead More ones that break the law. They will do that for sure along with doing tough roadside safety inspections of their rigs. Any time there is an accident of this magnitude involving tractor trailer rigs, you will see stepped up police action on these rigs and their drivers. Don't forget also the fines in construction zones double and an accident involving a fatality let alone four victims would spell lots of years for the driver if convicted.

From what I've seen the worst truckers are the guys that handle shipping containers....they tend toRead More drive the oldest trucks...and guys that drive gravel/grain trucks. They get paid by the load, not by the mile or by the hour. More loads, more money.

Stop the revolving door of justice(nonjustice!)!! Once they are involved in a crime involving a gun,Read More they should be sentenced to Hard Labor.. That's right, just like the Old Days!! No more of this crap where they lay around and get free room and board! Put them out in chain gangs and let them work! Screw the bleeding hearts who want to be nice to felons! Most of these people are hardened criminals..once again, if you do the crime, you do the time..But, now make it Hard Time that may sway them to straighten up!!

I tell anyone else that it's against the law to ask for this information. The companies that hired Plus and Minus to do drug testing should have investigated the background of Plus and Minus before they hired P&M.

She was right handed; but they found NO residue on her right hand.??? That sounds Very Strange. ButRead More they Did find it on her Left hand??? That sounds even more Strange. When you shoot a 9mm there is a recoil & the gun would have fallen out of her hand (when she died) the muscles would have relaxed. So then the gun would have fallen to her Right, on the Couch or it would have bounced off the Couch & onto the Floor. But they found it in Front of her, on her Lap????. That also sounds Very Strange!!! It sounds like a MURDER to me. They should have gone back to the scene, checked the sink & the pipes for gunshot residue. Were her Fingerprints even on the Gun??? It sounds like Sloppy Police work or a White Wash, or a Cover up!!!

Chicago Magazine recently published a 2-part series regarding the widespread cover-up of growingRead More violent black on white crime in Lakeview and the rest of Chicago, a cover-up emanating from the Mayor and all his flunkies. Yet the insipid editors of Lakeview Patch spend their time writing about nonsense when the lives and property of Lakeview residents are increasingly endangered by roving gangs of black thugs intent on turning Lakeview into another Englewood. Lakeview Patch is not relevant to the real world and not worth reading.
