  1. Not trying to sound like an a**hole but thatโ€™s proof that not all truckers are at fault for the accidents that happen… just putting this out there but what is going to happen in kekabeka when hundreds of transports go through the village with people pulling out from the side streets? Exactly the same situation that has unfolded today. So before everyone just assumes that itโ€™s always the semis causing the problems just think about all the accidents that the semi was doing absolutely nothing wrong. Just putting my opinion out there not trying to start s**t! Hope all is well for the woman that got injured and prayers for the family of her.

    1. Many 100’s of transports go through other towns on the northshore with no accidents, KB won’t be any different…its 4 lanes and 50 km/hr. The 12+ crashes on 102 this winter all were caused by transport excessive speed, only one was caused by 70+ woman pulling out in front of the truck..just like this one.

  2. people seem to not realize that a fully loaded tractor trailer travelling at highway speed takes over two football fields to stop.
    its not like a car that will stop within a 100ft. people blame the truckers but in all honesty most of these poeple have no idea what it takes to drive a tractor trailer, its not simple like driving your grandmothers chevette..

    hope everyone in this situation is pulls through.
