    Re: 100+ mph tickets - then what?

    Peripheral to this thread, have any results come out of the investigation into the crash that killed 7 and injured three?

    The pickup was towing a trailer so they had no place to go, and apparently had only left a parking lot 1/4 mile prior so we’re still bunched up. But the road was almost straight, kind of hard to understand how the pickup driver wound up all the way to the other side.

    Guess I shouldn’t be that surprised, got hit head on (in car) by a drunk on a Monday afternoon in downtown Peabody. The driver had a series of arrests previously and a pending DUI in CT.

    I am not positive but that looked like a big equipment trailer probably should have been towed by at least a dump truck

    Maybe tapped the brakes and the trailer just went where it wanted to

    Be safe out there men

    I will speculate here. The way the truck was going was a slight bend left, I rode it a few days after that accident. The truck was a new Ram 2500 which currently has a recall on the steering linkage that can come loose and cause possible loss of control of the vehicle. Just a thought.

    So, nothing to do with the driver's multiple drug and DUI arrests?

    Maybe this needs it's own thread.

    It's quite possible. I'm definitely not defending him at all but they claim he didn't test positive for anything and didn't find proof of distracted driving. So that's why I was speculating.

    exactly, previous DUIs don't make you drunk today, the only thing they have to do with is MA negligence in revoking his license, because they didn't, he had a valid license

    was he drunk, doubtful, leo's let him leave the scene
