        PennDOT truck involved? No. Jackknife on a straight stretch of road? No. Family on vacation plowed into? No. ‘Load shifted’ on an off ramp? No. Doesn’t count, try again. Enjoy your 15 minutes of four wheeler fame though, it’s only a matter of time until another ‘brofessional’ cowboy turns his 18 wheeler into twisted metal or a death machine. Yeehaw! I’s gots me a CDL!
