    It says the driver of the truck was 21. Inexperiance may have contributed to the accident. I think federal law says you have to be 21 to operate commercial vehicle out of your home state.

    The article says the truck landed on the hood of a car...talk about being itn the wrong place at the wrong time!
    How about explaning that to your insurance agent...."um, well, a truck fell from the skiy and landed on my hood" !
