    I doubt he planned his day to go this way, no semi wreck does.

    Yet another stupid semi truck driver flipping his rig, wtf?

      Stupid semi driver?? Much more likely some jerk cutting him off and he couldn’t do much. I see people cut in front of these big trucks far too often, just inches from the bumper.

        Every week there is a semi truck that either runs into a bridge or flips over I think they are hiring losers to drive trucks
