    You gotta be kidding me! What part of the 5 seeing habits didn't this driver use? Looks like all FIVE.

    How ironic is it that there is a UPS feeder truck ON THE TRAIN!

    He slowed down the delivery of a lot of packages that day, not just on his truck. That much being said, I'm glad we are not discussing any fatalities.

    article says that the passenger was another employee and that he was twenty years old. That age either makes him a driver helper or a supervisor.

    Thank goodness no one was hurt. What a mess to deal with. We get in such a hurry, it only takes a second and one bad decision to abruptly change someone's life or end it. May we all be more diligent in our travels this holiday season, both at work and on our own time.
