    Straps weren’t strong enough, the driver didn’t slow down on the ramp, he was distracted, etc. This was pure carelessness and there are no excuses!

      I’m curious about something – no matter which article it is, no matter what happened you are always the first to rush into some sort of judgement call usually against the person in the story. Why is that? It could be you are right but with your post above you’ve just thrown a few things against the wall to see what sticks. Could it be – possibly – that some jackwagon cut him off, he had to swerve, and the load shifted enough to cause the bricks to slide off? I’m not saying you are wrong and he and/or the person who loaded the truck was negligent but it’s always a rush to judgement with you.

    LACK OF ENFORCEMENT? STRAPS WERE NOT STRONG ENOUGH? The Richmond way. Public opinion is the truth. regardless how wrong it might be. Who knows what happen but, throw a rumor out there and “poof” it is fact.
