There will probably be a lot who will disagree but that’s ok this is my own opinion. I don’t agree with sending the driver to prison. Prison isn’t going to fix what happened. I actually think us as a society could learn something from him. He took accountability for his actions, something a lot of people struggle with. Instead of sending him to prison, he should tell his story to future and current truck driver to stress the importance of taking the precautions. He made a mistake, something a lot of us have done. I will admit I have accidentally ran a red light because I got distracted for a second or didn’t stop at a stop sign because I didn’t want to wait. This could have happened to me, it could have happened to anyone. He took accounting for his actions yet there’s people who drink and drive and kill someone and plead not guilty and only spend 2 years in prison. What about the guy who set a house on fire and killed an infant and got 2 months. Both those scenarios knew what they where doing. They CHOSE to get in a car drunk. He CHOSE to light a house on fire. This guy didn’t choose for the tarp to get loose at that moment. It’s not fully his fault he wasn’t trained properly. He did the right thing by taking accountability and I hope the judge sees that. I hope current and future drivers and truck drivers use his accident as a lesson for what could happen if you run a stop sign.
