The privilege of driving a commercial vehicle in Minnesota comes with major responsibilities. Drivers of large, heavy trucks must operate their vehicles in a way that does not hurt others. Driving is their job, and like the rest of us, they must do their jobs in a professional manner.
According to officials in southwestern Minnesota, one semi driver did not take this responsibility seriously enough. The man faces charges of criminal vehicular homicide, careless driving and a moving violation after a deadly truck accident on September 19.
