    Felt like watching a movie... so surreal...

    Must have been crazy freaky for the people driving on the same lane as the truck.

    Anyone have news of injuries or such, so that I can happily say `awesome, man!` without feeling guilty?

    Oh my god. If this is the right story (on somebody`s blog) then he was driving down the wrong side of the road for 20 miles. And he was diabetic, and he died.

    he had low blood sugar apparently and went unconcious or something. what was even worse is that it landed on railway tracks, imagine if there has been a train running.

    Yeah traffic was chaos for hours and hours. It`s really sad but the police are now inquiring as to whether or not he should`ve been driving in the first place. I heard he was diabetic and had passed out while driving. On the news they talked to one of his relatives who, frighteningly said, that if he was having one of his "spells" that he`d be breathing but would not be there mentally. Naturally everyone wants to know how could someone with a condition like that be driving and on top of that driving something like and 18 wheeler. Really sad but could have been a LOT worse.

    Wow, poor guy :-( At least nobody else was hurt.

    I`m pretty sure in most parts of the world that it`s illegal to drive HGVs and such with uncontrolled diabetes. I guess if it was his only source of income, he may have lied to keep working. How could his relatives know he had these spells and still let him drive though?!

    Nath2k8--the newsanchors said it hit a guard rail. I think it was driving on the road, drove over the guard rail and then fell down between the two sets of road.

    It`s amazing no one else was hurt!

    Wow, this is why private transportaion offices need to have their logs checked and there driver physicals watched more often. Poor guy more than likely had no other income and was being pushed by the dispatcher to "move the load faster". Damn gas prices put everyone in a bad spot.

    "He was probably an immigrant from Europe who just came to Canada."

    I don`t get it. If you mean because he was driving on the wrong side, we only drive on the left in the UK. Everywhere else in Europe is on the right.

    He`s from my city; Edmonton. Very sad: he went the wrong way on the Yellowhead for 40 Kilometers. I am suprised that something from my city made it on IAB.

    My Grandfather was a Great man.

    At one time I remember watching the news, they where running a story about a car going the wrong way on the very same highway my grandfather travels to go to work.

    I phoned him on his cellphone telling him to be weary of a Driver going the wrong way, He replies -

    "*A* Driver? I see Hundreds!"
