Commentary on Semi-Trailer Accident on Highway 6 in Robertson County

To be rather blunt, u-turns are almost always dangerous in an 18-wheeler, and a lot of companies out there outright fire drivers for doing something so potentially deadly.

But does that make a situation like this open-and-shut? Far from it.
