Wisconsin jurors heard testimony this week about a trucker who stayed out all night with friends the night before a fatal crash, and had his truck on cruise control in tenth gear when he fell asleep and overturned in 2005. A bus carrying a high school marching band collided with the overturned big rig on I-94 near Eau Claire. Five of the kids died in the crash. The truck driver claimed that he was just trying to pull over to go to the bathroom when he overturned.
