The commercial vehicle ran across the road center line and collided with the motor home.
Clearly lousy truck driving. What a shame.

From the description of events the vehicles other than commercial rig had no chance.

Commercial drifted off road then over corrected and crossed the line.

Sounds like distracted driving via cell phone...almost got hit the other day from moron driving 18 wheels while texting or other activity on their phone.

Where are people getting that the officer is talking about the MH driver? As I read the comments he is talking about distracted driving in general.

Regardless, it is a horrible tragedy that will cause heartache for all involved for the rest of their lives.

It is my understanding that they were coming back from a Boy Scout camping or event. Prayers for all involved.
