Now, authorities in Oklahoma are trying to figure out why the driver did not stop, nor hit the brakes, last Friday when he slammed his big rig into a line of vehicles slowed on a turnpike. The accident killed ten people. Because of the accident, the trucker could face ten separate misdemeanor homicide charges that each carry a 1-year sentence. Although alcohol was not reported as a factor, buy paxil liquid online investigators have not found a reason why the trucker failed to stop. Furthermore, an initial report concluded that he was traveling at an unsafe speed for the traffic conditions.
