  1. Y’all need to start looking into the laws that vary by state. That’s the reason of the length of his sentence.

  2. American has to be one of the heartless country you better have zero mistakes because that will cost you life I understand 4 life are in heaven but the Americans need to let’s go of that cold heart 110 years is not human

  3. I want it to be known, if a truck driver accidentally kills me because his brakes went out. I forgive him/her and don't want them to spend 110 years in prison. Absolutely disgusting that the prosecutors pushed so many charges.

  4. That’s not sense from judge, some peoples kill 4 others peoples they said not guilty and some peoples work hard to support family and move America and we working hard for that and suffering from family and all that now we deserve tread like that is so ridiculous , and judge not understanding the situation

  5. One place I want be driving! until he gets out ,we the Trucker runs this country and don’t even

  6. Why can I not find any testimony from the trial? News outlets barely covered any specifics. There is one iTunes video of closing arguments but the video cuts out so often that you can’t make heads or takes of what they are saying.
    1. Did he stop at Berthoud pass to check brakes?
    2. Was he having problems before?
    3. Did he lie to his employers about his capabilities?
    4. Was he able to read the many signs and warnings on the road? Is he fluent in reading English?
    5. What exactly is the terrain? All downhill, some uphill? How long was the flat stretch

  7. As a truck driver myself, I don't know what to think about this. Here's the thing….I need to first let go that he barely can speak English. As a teuck driver in the United States, u are REQUIRED to speak write and understand English. But there are ALOT of drivers who can't. Some are Spanish but a lot are also Russian. So that aside….I dunno how long this guy had been a driver. But there are ways to take a hill. U use your Jake brakes (engine brakes), u use lower gears, and u stab brake instead of staying on it. For those who aren't familiar with air brakes in trucks, holding pressure on them on a down grade like that will cause the brakes to catch fire and u will lose them. I'd be curious to know what gear he was in. And the fact that he skipped the truck ramp is dumb. I get that they are scary. Myself, Ive never had to take one. But they can be scary if u know u have to take one. It's gonna hurt, u are gonna get tossed around like a doll, it's gonna do damage to your truck and trailer, but it's better than killing others. He made too many mistake

  8. Truck drivers should be held to a higher standard of safety. I live in inland empire of Southern California and a could say a lot of truck drivers are $&[email protected] drivers.

  9. Looks like the semi was out of control and this man just didn’t have enough experience to know what to do. You lawmakers in Colorado suck! I hope you never have to face your own laws!

  10. This sentence is fair. I would expect society to uphold professionalism from truck drivers who are able to think clearly under emergency situations. Because they drive trucks that can clearly kill people.

  11. I dont think he should get 110 years if he did truly pass the runaway ramp he should get some time but definitely not 110 years thats ode

  12. Don't want to be rude but there's people getting killed by white kids in school and they get less sentences for this ..That's crazy bro this is crazy you Americans British going too far Thank you God I live in Spain the laws is different here

  13. Welp, this is Colorado. Boycott Colorado. Bring the State to its KNEES!!! Teach these lefty idiots and the judges they vote in a lesson.
