A truck driver from Pooler, Georgia was killed at 4 AM on 3/24/05, when his semitrailer veered off northbound I-95 in South Carolina, and crashed into a grove of trees in the median. A police spokesman said, “We don’t know if it was a medical condition or if he fell asleep or what at this point.” See Beaufort (SC) Gazette article. Ironically, the trucker was only a few miles from home, and driving away from his home, at the time of the crash.
