fedex accident

Tragic. I heard it on the news and KNEW it was going to be a bad story for the truck driver no matter what. Even when he gets cleared, it will ALWAYS be remembered as the "truck killed the people. Not the fact someone else caused it.

heard on the local news in SF bay area this morning that many witnesses saw the truck on fire as it came across the divide. Makes sense what you are saying!

Thanks again for reporting the true story. It is a very sad situation for all involved and their families. Too bad we have to be subjected to all of the media bias when it comes to the news.

thanks allot for all your support,fella,s...im sure most of you probably were wondering,,,and yes,,,im sure they wanted it to be the truckers fault...its a real joke,,,you spend alotta time skidding all over the road to avoid motorist,,,and get absolutely nothing for it,and that stinking snatch (DIANNE SAWYER) didnt even bring up the fact that both drivers were burned alive,just doing thier job,...kind of makes you ill.but its always been that way,all you hear is why didnt he do this,,,or that???,,,remember my pop,,,bellyachin about that,,,when i was a kid,,,in the 60,s lol.... bob

The media is very quick to sensationalize any story. And "an out of control truck careened into a bus full of high school students" is much more sensational than "truck struck by car then hits bus". I've long been a critic of the media, since my late teens when I got involved in emergency services, and I typically take anything reported with a grain of salt but sadly this time I was on board with what was first reported because of the run of bad luck Fed Ex has had over the past several months with high profile crashes in my part of the country. Those of you out west, please keep us up on this story as it continues.

The media also likes to refer to drivers of pickup trucks as truck drivers.
