Truck Driver claims he was alert in ANTWERP, NY crash that killed 6
Being alert behind the wheel is one of the most important things a tractor trailer driver can be. Unfortunately, alert doesn’t always mean aware and focused on driving. Example: James A. Mills Jr., 45, of Myerstown, PA, was behind the wheel of his 18-wheeler when he slammed into an SUV that was stopped for construction and started a chain reaction that took the lives of six people.
Was Mr. Mills under the influence, asleep, on his phone or texting while driving? No. By all accounts he was perfectly alert and capable of preventing the accident. So why didn’t he? With the investigation still underway, authorities are hoping to get answers. Some speculate that Mr. Mills just didn’t notice the orange construction signs until it was too late.
