how did this happen?

i used to work on the railway and alot of the danger was they were too cheap to design the equipment safely
 

eats packages

Deranged lunatic
I am seeing a lot of feeder-involved mishaps in the news lately... Maybe it's a result of hiring off the street. Truckers in the US (especially logging trucks) have a notoriously awful track record. Most are used to getting paid by the mile. Incentivized unsafe driving.

I am very careful when beside or around trailers. I don't like when guys hook/unhook up while I am cranking landing gear or walking g between tractors.

I also know that mgt has been dogging on drivers about pull times....and some of these newer drivers, especially guys that only were pc drivers for a year or two still have that go go mentality....this is also part of the problem

The chances of him getting down off the dock and to the airlines before it hit something was zero... when someone panics their mind can do very strange things that they usually would never think about EVER following through on...so sad

I wasn’t there. Allegedly that’s what happened. It doesn’t really matter now, what’s done is done. Prayers to his family.

It's those 'runner' feeder drivers.
