    Car pulled out to pass another car and collided with truck head on. No way trucker could have avoided the crash. Unfortunately the driver of car did not survive.

    My ex was a trucker. He complained all the time about cars pulling out in front of him or passing him and then cutting back in. Even at posted speeds they can't just stop on a dime. Don't really know what happened here though.

    Make sure you have all the facts before you accuse the tractor trailer

    No information about injuries, but a car being covered with a sheet is never, ever a good sign. :(
