Arkansas City, Kansas, 3/23/05. One truck driver was killed in a crash caused by another truck driver attempting a u-turn on I-35 at 5 AM. See article.
U-turn on the interstate? The list of potential violations of state traffic laws (improper turning, failure to yield, etc.) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (failure to obey state traffic laws, probably hours of service violation, driving while impaired, etc.) one might investigate in such an incident is just incredible.
