More: It appears to be the result of an armed robbery. And the thief appears to have knowledge.. LOTS OF IT about driving semi's.. This was just TOO CRAZY..

Yeah, CNN's coverage sucked ass! I flipped over to Fox News and they had all the details. CNN was like "we have the police chasing a semi" ... well gee thanks, I appreciate that info as I would have never figured that out. Insane

Airlinelover, he did not have much knowledge as he didn't turn off the rear brakes which caused a fire and really hurting his chances of getting away. Smile/happy/getting dizzy

My guess is he was just too eager to get away to think of LOOKING.. I mean face it, not all criminals are smart..

Well then Airlinelover don't say "the thief appears to have knowledge.. LOTS OF IT about driving semi's" if you don't think he is smart. Smile/happy/getting dizzy It isn't rocket science... if you can drive a stick you can handle a semi the way he did. He didn't have to worry about taking easy and wide turns or being safe in general as he was running from the cops. Quite frankly the guy was a moron and probably had no clue about driving a tractor trailer full of lumber or the bad things that happen by running from the cops. Big grin

Well, I know.. He must have had at least SOME knowledge, as he didn't hit anyone or anything.. I think that was a total miracle..
