First of all my condolences go out to all the families effected by this tragedy.
I also want to say that I am by no means an accident re-creator or an expert in investigating crashes.

First of all, I don’t “claim to be an expert” but I do have some suggestions for new male or female truckers to be able to survive the grueling time spent with a trainer.

Women in Trucking are Truck Drivers too

First of all, in order to clear this up, I am not talking about the WIT  group (Women in Trucking) that’s on the internet. I am, however, talking about the “Real Women” out here that drive up and down the road, hauling the same freight as you guys do everyday.
