    I did not see anything else posted about this. I think the driver was a 30 year safe driver, on Founders Day. Very sad.

    Over 35 years. He was out of Jersey I believe. Fog seemed to be a big factor in the accident.

    Is that article correct, 71 years of age?

    Terrible loss.

    Division Manager was in our building the day after it happened. Said instead of it being a great day (Founders Day), it was the worst day in his 34 years at UPS. 41 year employee, I thought he said 41yr safe driving, maybe I misunderstood, certainly Circle of Honor. He said he didn't have a chance, never even hit the brakes.

    I would rather drive on ice than in the fog.

    R.I.P.

    I will never judge another driver's reasons for when they do or don't retire, but man, shoot me if I'm still working at UPS at the age of 71. If I worked at UPS to the age of 71, that be 53 years working here. I will die someday, but I don't want to have my monkey suit when I do.

    these kind of stories give me the nightmares I have. took my disabled wife for a 2 hr drive around the Lake Tahoe area yesterday. not a good idea since it is Labor day weekend. I was a nervous wreck worrying about drunks and other careless drivers ( did not let on to wife though )

    so sorry for this loss. sad.
