    unnerving to hear about such accidents. Tragic. Lives snuffed out just like that. A trailer tractor jumps the meridian, why? Fate? Grim Reaper playing his game of catch a la Final Destination?
    Most of us are on the road sometime or the other.

    A@ saywhat- we had a tractor trailer slam into stopped cars on the hwy. After the accident they found the truck driver was on the phone, texting. Another truck driver had fallen a sleep. Many fatalities in both instances.
