Semi truck driver caused fatal accident while watching movie
Posted on February 6th, 2010 by Zane Cagle
A tractor trailer driver caused a fatal accident last week, and subsequent investigations revealed that his log books had been falsified and he had been watching a movie at the time of the crash.
The driver admitted to police that he had been on duty for more than 27 hours prior to the accident and was watching a movie on a laptop when he struck another vehicle that was disabled on the road. The driver of that vehicle died as a direct result of her injuries in the crash.
